We’ve been named one of the Top 100 Employers for School Leavers in the UK following the success of our apprenticeship programmes.
The achievement will be announced at the School Leaver Awards ceremony in London on Thursday 17th May, which recognises the UK’s best apprenticeships and school leaver programmes, as well as those businesses that excel in areas such as job satisfaction, career progression, training and company culture.
We’ve also been shortlisted for the Most Innovative Recruitment Campaign and Top Employer for IT and Technology categories, while our 16-year-old apprentice Vikas Khan is in the running for the School Leaver of the Year Award.
More than 120 young people have progressed through our 12-month apprenticeship scheme since it was launched in 2012, with over half progressing to full-time roles within the business.
Sally Neale, HR Director for Arvato UK & Ireland, said: “Our apprenticeship schemes provide a varied, challenging route into the world of work for young people and it’s great to see them benefit from the training opportunities on offer. This achievement is testament to the commitment and enthusiasm our teams put into the programmes and the new skills and experience they provide our young trainees.”
The award ceremony will take place at The Sheraton Grand on Park Lane. You can purchase tickets for the event here.
