In the Running for the Double

A-Plant is in the running to win the prestigious accolade of North West Large Employer of the Year for two years on the trot!

We have been shortlisted for the esteemed award at the North West final of the National Apprenticeship Awards for 2017. We were crowned North West Large Employer of the Year last year and we are very proud to be shortlisted once again. The awards are open to organisations across Manchester, Cheshire and Staffordshire and the large employer category applies to those businesses with between 250-4,999 employees. The awards recognise excellence in businesses that grow their own talent through apprenticeships and the apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.

The A-Plant Apprenticeship Programme started back in 2005 with just a handful of Plant Maintenance Apprentices to create the talent of the future and provide a pool of skilled employees familiar with our equipment and values. Today, we employ almost 150 Apprentices across our business, a number which continues to grow.

We are very much looking forward to the Regional Apprenticeship Awards Ceremony which takes place at Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel on 9th October 2017, and wish all finalists the very best of luck.
