Training and Development

At Muir you will have access to a range of development opportunities that will help you excel in your job and prepare you for your next step.

We encourage all of our people to make the most of the training on offer. Having a skilled workforce means we can provide better services to customers.

  • Induction training gets new recruits up-to-speed with our aims, working practices, and health and safety procedures.
  • Job skills training focuses on the specific capabilities you need to perform well in your role. It includes external courses that ensure you stay informed about developments in your profession.
  • Personal development training teaches you interpersonal skills that are useful in your home life as well as at work.
  • Our management training gives people in junior managerial positions the support they need to progress to the next level. We also give managers the opportunity to complete external courses in management skills.

Training in job-specific professional qualifications is also available as part of our performance management framework.
