Value of Membership

Incorporating a broad range of employment resources and benefits, JIB membership represents outstanding value for businesses, regardless of size

Take a look at the summary below and use the benefits calculator to work out a personalised summary of savings and other benefits.

Lodging Allowance

For JIB members paying the JIB Lodging Allowance of £44.79 per night, there's a tax saving in employer NI contributions of £6.18 per operative per night, or £30.91 per week for 5 nights lodging, compared to companies paying the same amount but not operating in strict adherence to the JIB Agreement or operating under special tax procedures.

Mileage Allowance

For JIB members providing the JIB Mileage Allowance of 22p per mile to operatives that use their own transport to and from the site, mileage allowance provisions provide a saving of 3p per mile between the Job and the Shop compared to those not covered by the special tax procedures (2020 rates). On a job 25 miles from the Shop, this would equate to just under £400 per employee per year.

ECS In-house Invigilation

JIB members are able to invigilate ECS Health, Safety & Environmental Assessments in-house which means not only a cost saving of £18 per assessment, but also bring time savings as employees can simply come to the office rather than travel to an external assessment centre. Calculator savings are based on £18 per assessment and a half day rate for an Approved Electrician at the National Standard rate.

ECS Card Discounts

JIB members receive a £12 (incl. VAT) discount on online card applications and renewals. These savings are automatically applied for members via the ECS Employer Portal.

Skills Development Fund

JIB Skills Development Fund. Support is available to cover up to 75% of eligible courses which could provide financial support of up to £750 per year for Level 3 courses, up to £1000 for Level 4 and 5 courses and up to £1250 for Level 6 courses. 

Mediation services

The JIB acts as an impartial 'go-between' when disputes arise, covering grievances on unfair dismissal, underpayments of wages, holiday pay and redundancy. Free to JIB members, this type of mediation can cost up to £800 per day from other providers. By using the JIB, the significant costs of Employment Tribunal can be avoided - an average one-day unfair dismissal case is now estimated to cost over £7,000. Contact us for more information.
