The Register of Cabling and Jointing Contractors brings together JIB member companies that specialise in cabling and jointing work.
Since its formation in 1989, the Cabling and Jointing Committee has worked to strengthen this specialised sector of the industry, in particular ensuring that JIB member companies only use members of the Cabling and Jointing Register when sub-contracting cabling work.
A new industrial relations agreement for the cabling sector has now been agreed. This process of negotiating a new agreement, card changes and new grading definitions included:
- Updates to grading definitions including a new grade of Cable Hand (equivalent to Electrical Labourer)
- The introduction of new ECS cards for the sector
- A recognised career progression route for Cabling and Jointing leading to an NVQ Level 3
- The launch and recognition of a new Jointer Assessment
The full agreement is contained in the JIB Handbook.
There is no charge to join the register for JIB member companies but a company must become a full JIB member before membership of the register can be granted. A document setting out the full range of benefits can be viewed here.
Members of the register are categorised by the size of their labour force. A major cabling contractor has a cabling and jointing labour force of 75 or more operatives. A designation does not prevent any member of the register being asked to tender for any size of contract.
