Who We Are

S Jones Containers is one of the UK market leaders in the sale, hire and conversion of shipping containers. Established in 1914, we’re a family business whose longstanding success is built on investment in our people and their ideas.

This approach has seen us evolve from a haulage and truck dealership to a container depot to a world-class, wholly owned container related company that manufactures lithium-ion battery storage units, pop-up restaurants, portable workspaces and everything in-between.

What’s It Like To Work at S Jones?

There is no “typical day” at S Jones. Whether you’re a fabricator working in our workshop or are part of our CAD design team, you can expect your work to be varied, fulfilling, and contribute to a clear outcome.

But don’t take our word for it, see for yourself what our employees have to say about working here below.

Mike Box – Fabricator

“At previous jobs, I’ve found myself wanting more of a challenge and I’ve ended up looking at vacancies elsewhere. At S Jones I’ve never felt the need to look elsewhere – the company make sure we are always developing our skills with new challenges.

I feel like the company go the extra mile to look after you by providing a safe environment to work in while also making the job engaging and enjoyable. Every morning I always feel motivated to get up, come to work and get on with whatever challenges we face that day!”

Steve Albutt – Fabricator

“Working at S Jones Containers on the conversion team is not a repetitive job.

You get to do a variety of different tasks for each job and you get to see the job all the way through from the start to the finished end product, which is rewarding.”

Sarah Green – Sales Manager

“I’ve grown tremendously since joining S Jones in 2012 as an Internal Sales Coordinator. In just two years, I was promoted to Team Leader. After this, I was promoted to Assistant Sales Manager before landing my current role as Sales Manager.

I’m a testament to what happens at S Jones when you have a willingness to learn and take on responsibility. What’s great about S Jones is the investment and support they give you.

When I first joined, I didn’t have much management experience, but I have been nurtured by an amazing team who have always helped me challenge myself and, in doing so, to reap the rewards.”

Dan Arrowsmith – Fabricator

“Apart from the work being really interesting, working at S Jones feels like you’re part of a big family. It’s a family company and everyone looks out for each other. Working here really feels like you’re part of a whole team which is great.

Not only do we all work together as one big team in the workshop, but we also get on really well and have fun together too on company nights out!”
