Investing in apprenticeships and developing the careers of all employees is of key importance.
We have a long-standing relationship with a number of apprenticeship providers, one being Northern Skills Group and Middlesbrough College.
Our relationship with the college spans eight years and currently our mobile account managers, Emma Gillespie and Marie Lunt are both studying an 18 month ILM Level 3 Diploma for Managers via the Northern Skills and Middlesbrough College.
Over the years we have nurtured the skills of a number of apprentices who have become full-time employees. We want to cultivate young talent so that they embark on a journey with us.
We were therefore delighted to find out that we had been awarded ‘SME Employer of the Year’ at the Northern Skills and Middlesbrough College Apprenticeship Awards.
Marie and Emma collected the award alongside HR director, Lynne Gillespie.
It is always nice to be recognised and we were delighted by the kind words of the college.
“This employer closely aligns its recruitment and development opportunities in line with the needs of the business, meaning it can provide valuable opportunities to new employees and further develop their skills and promote from within the organisation.
“This employer clearly looks after its staff and apprentices and goes above and beyond to ensure they have a great experience as an employee.”
