investment that any company can make is employing the right people. Many of our staff members have been with us for over a
decade, and we are very careful in selecting only those individuals who have a passion for pyrotechnics.
|The Jubilee team consists of
over forty skilled technicians, each of whom possesses the qualities
needed to be an effective display operator. Dedication, enthusiasm,
and a willingness to 'go the extra mile' are three key ingredients
that we look for.
Training also underpins everything that we do. All of our key technicians are
qualified to professional industry standards. Indeed, Jubilee staff were instrumental
in the development of the BPA operator-training scheme, now established and recognised
as the industry standard in the UK.
