The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) has added to its portfolio of services for jewellers with a new HR solutions package.

This came about following feedback and discussions between members at the CMJ’s regular virtual ‘Growth & Learning Network’ meetings, during which the buying group identified common HR needs and questions arising across its membership.

The service includes a catalogue of different HR partners suitable for the CMJ’s diverse membership, to provide support and advice for the current climate and for long-term support.


CMJ’s selected HR partners offer varying levels of expertise, from a free legal helpline to a HR specialist company with a team of experienced advisors, who can offer flexible HR and health and safety packages to suit any business.

Amber Saunders, membership development executive at the CMJ, said: “We are delighted to announce the extension of our support package for members to include a range of HR solutions.

“With rules on furlough changing month by month, for example, and many businesses facing unprecedented pressures and staffing challenges, we wanted to ensure that our members had easy access to legitimate sources of information and advice, rather than having to attempt to source their own solutions on an individual basis.

“All the partners we have chosen to work with are either offering preferential rates or exclusive services, so our members can be sure they are benefitting from the very best HR guidance and advice – and there really is something to suit every business.”

The CMJ is the largest watch and jewellery buying group in the UK and Ireland. Its new HR package adds to a service offering that includes an exclusive PPE menu, put together to offer safe reopening solutions for members.

The body has also provided its members with practical support around re-opening, including in-store signage, window decals and social media assets, so that retailers can communicate effectively with customers and reassure consumers that their stores are safe environments to shop in.
