Amulet Signs Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter

Amulet Signs Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter
29 August 2023

Security services provider Amulet, part of Churchill Group, has joined the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter to improve employment practices in the region.

The Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter is a voluntary membership and assessment scheme which was created to deliver jobs where employees are treated appropriately, offered inclusive opportunities, and paid fairly within the Greater Manchester area. It was founded in 2019 as an initiative from the Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham to address workplace employment standards and raise productivity across the region.

Amulet has become one of 22 new supporters of the charter this month.


Seven Characteristics of Good Employment


The charter is based on seven characteristics of “Good Employment”. These include providing employees with secure work, flexible work opportunities, paying the Real Living Wage, and offering wellbeing support.

Tracey Cheung, Amulet’s Head of HR, has attended one of the charter’s events, and has already learned how Amulet can further cater its recruitment process to service employee needs. Amulet hopes to further enhance its employment standards, elevate all current practices, and in the future, help other organisations follow suit.

Kieran Mackie, Managing Director of Amulet, said: “Our people are at the heart of everything we do at Amulet and that is why it was important for us to support the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter. We want to make Amulet an employer of choice but also elevate the security industry as a whole and make it an attractive career option for the next generation of the workforce. Aligning ourselves with this Charter is an important step in that direction.”
