Partner organisations

MTFJ has created partnerships with other organisations and businesses to provide additional support and expertise in specific areas.



EMA provides advisory and consulting services for businesses, offering training courses, network support, advocacy groups, and resources. They provide  additional support services for existing EMA members.

You can use your MTFJ business support fund for this service, so there's no cost to the business. 

EMA creates live webinars for MTFJ-affiliated businesses and employers to help with recruitment, onboarding, and retention of employees. These webinars are free to attend, and you'll receive notice from the MTFJ National Office about dates and publicity materials to share with your business network.
