AMADA UK has been crowned ‘Large Employer of the Year 2017’ at the prestigious Worcestershire Apprenticeships Awards. The award (sponsored by Sanctuary Group) is seen as recognition of the company’s highly successful apprenticeship programme, which has been in place since 2006.
At present, AMADA employs 17 apprentices, mostly in engineering, but also in accountancy and business administration schemes. The programme supports AMADA UK’s mantra of “growing our own talent pool” providing management candidates of the future with “AMADA DNA”.
Jack Cleaver, who is in year three of the scheme and is AMADA UK’s current Apprentice of the Year, says: “AMADA’s apprenticeship is beneficial from day one. The on-the-job training is unparalleled and the responsibility we are given is as if we’re already qualified. Partnered with the external training and accreditation, we are guaranteed a successful and fruitful career.”
AMADA UK remains firmly committed to the continued support of its apprenticeship programme and the development of future talent. The company’s apprentices are viewed as genuine business assets who contribute significantly to AMADA’s ongoing success.
