Why Work at JCB?

JCB is a family-owned company that has enjoyed progressive success and expansion. The company began as one man building agricultural equipment into a global brand. JCB remains privately owned by the Bamford family and the present Chairman is Sir Anthony Bamford, the oldest son of Joseph Cyril Bamford CBE, the company founder.

Today, JCB has 22 plants on five continents manufacturing more than 300 products. Our success story is one that wouldn’t have happened had it not be for our employees.

JCB people are at the heart of our business, constantly driving the business forward and amazing us with incredible ideas that result in industry-leading innovations. Our founder, Joseph Cyril Bamford, always talked about a 'sense of urgency' and being 'never content'. JCB people have this 'can do' attitude and know that only the highest standards are acceptable. It's how they continue to play such a crucial role in our ongoing success.

Like many other successful global companies, at JCB we never stand still and are continually looking for a better way of doing things to exceed our customers' expectations. The challenges of competing for business in global markets is changing all the time, so it is essential to our continued success that everyone who works at JCB has the same positive mindset that has enabled us to become the successful global company we are today.

There are four elements to this attitude:

  • A ‘can do’ philosophy
  • A sense of humility
  • A sense of urgency

But we are 'never content' and are constantly pushing boundaries to take our company to new heights. It's this attitude that has led to us winning more than 70 major awards for engineering excellence, export, design, marketing, management and for our care for the environment.
