SAM Apprenticeship Programme

SAM NI’s Apprenticeship programme is central to the future growth and development of our organisation. Not only will you work in a high quality, customer focused, innovative environment, you will develop your skills and thrive within our business with the full support of your mentor.

The Higher Level Apprenticeship in Mechatronic Engineering provides students with a broad education in aspects of Mechanical, Manufacturing and Electrical Engineering, which equips them for a career in industry.

This course recognises the rapid growth and changes occurring within engineering and provides apprentices with the skills and knowledge to apply in an industrial environment and within their job role.

This 3-year Higher Level Apprenticeship is designed to equip apprentices with the ability to understand, utilise and develop the skills needed whilst working in the engineering industry. It builds transferable skills in communication, teamwork, and the ability to self-reflect.

All staff delivering on this programme are highly experienced with an extensive level of skillset across all engineering disciplines.

Within SAM, 6 of our employees have completed their Level 5 apprenticeship scheme.

SAM NI / JW Kane Precision Engineering Limited TAX STRATEGY

JW Kane Precision Engineering Limited (JW Kane or the Company) is committed to acting with integrity and transparency in all tax matters, complying fully with both the spirit and the letter of all tax legislation. Accordingly, JW Kane adopts the following five principles:

  1. Compliance with all tax legislation at all times or the territory in which we operate.

  5. Acceptance of a low level of risk in relation to taxation

Compliance for the Company means paying the correct amount of tax at the right time and disclosing all the relevant facts and circumstances to the tax authorities and claiming reliefs and incentives where applicable.

To support and assist JW Kane in adhering to these five principles the Company seeks advice from external tax advisers. Company continues to comply with best practice.

Tax compliance and governance is part of the Finance function within the Company and is the ultimate responsibility of The Board of Directors. Under its Corporate Governance structure, the Company employs suitably qualified staff in key roles in the management of its tax obligations.

JW Kane is transparent in its communications with HMRC. In conjunction with its advisers, tax issues are updated and reviewed regularly on an on‐going basis.

The nature and scale of the business together with the volume of tax obligations means, that risks will inevitably arise from time to time in relation to the interpretation of tax law and the nature of Company’s compliance requirements. The Company actively seeks to identify evaluate monitor and manage these risks to ensure they remain in line with overall risk strategy. In cases where there is significant uncertainty or complexity external advice is sought.
