Pickfords Top Apprentice Employer

Pickfords named Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer

23 Jan 2017

Pickfords has been recognised in the prestigious Centrica Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list, compiled annually by the National Apprenticeship Service, which recognises excellence in businesses that employ apprentices.

The list was announced at the National Apprenticeship Awards, which took place on 20 January at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

After a tough selection process, the most exceptional employers from all categories went forward to feature in the list, which showcases the breadth of employers who offer apprenticeships.

Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service, commended on Pickfords being named a Centrica Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer:

"The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list 2016 demonstrates clearly the impact apprentices can have on an organisation. Apprentice employers are creating opportunities for individuals to gain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed, up to degree level, while working and earning.

These employers are making a difference to the lives of their apprentices by investing in their future. In return, apprentices are helping employers to develop a skilled, qualified workforce to build a stronger economy.

I hope the success of these Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers will mean more businesses across England aspire to follow their example and find out for themselves how apprenticeships help grow a skilled and highly qualified workforce."

Pickfords' Apprentice Scheme was launched in 2015, and has since successfully recruited and trained over 50 apprentices in various roles across the company. The scheme is an excellent opportunity for young people entering the job market to gain valuable experience in their chosen sector.
