The 5% Club
- The Department of Business Innovation adn Skills (BIS) supports where possible and recommends that progressive companies for the future should be members of the 5% club.
- Being a member of the club asks us to commit to having 5% of our work force (predominantly young employees) being involved in training schemes and personal development initiatives. Examples of other members of this club in our industry are: Rolls Royce, BAE systems, Airbus and Thales.
- Our intake of Placement positions, Graduate Recruitment and Apprentices put us in the 5% club (24 trainees on the scheme).
- Our scheme, which was previously only available within our Engineering teams, has now expanded to include other areas of the business - enabling us to offer Graduate and Apprentice recruitment in IT, Business Capture, Marketing, Program Management, Supply Chain and Operations.
