Clarkson Evans has been named as one of the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers in the country.

The company stood out from hundreds of entrants to be named a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer at a glittering award ceremony in London on the January 18.

After a tough selection process only the most exceptional apprenticeship employers featured on the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers list 2017. The award recognises employers offering outstanding apprenticeship opportunities.

Lindsey Young, Chief Operating Officer at Clarkson Evans said: “We are thrilled to be named as a Top 100 apprenticeship employer for the second time. We are passionate about playing our part in training the next generation of electricians and have been doing so for almost twenty years.

“It is wonderful that our longstanding commitment to apprenticeship training is being recognised nationally. I hope that our success will encourage more employers to follow our example and find out how apprenticeships can help grow a skilled and highly qualified workforce,” added Lindsey.

Now in its 14th year, the National Apprenticeship Awards demonstrate how employers can grow their own talent by offering apprenticeships and how apprentices are making a significant contribution to their workplace.

Clarkson Evans specialises in wiring new homes for the UK’s leading housing developers. In 2017 the company wired over 19,000 homes, that’s 1 in 10 of all new properties built in England and Wales last year.

In total Clarkson Evans employs over 800 staff and operates across much of southern England, the Midlands and south Wales.

The company is expanding rapidly and has launched an extensive recruitment drive for more apprentices throughout the country, including Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Oxford and Peterborough. Current vacancies can be found at www.clarksonevans.co.uk.
