Almac scoops the prize for Best Apprentice Employer of the Year at ABC Business Awards
March 1, 2022
Almac Group has been named Best Apprentice Employer of the Year at the recent Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Business Awards.
This award recognises our ongoing commitment to the growth and development of our apprentices and the contribution and success that apprenticeships have brought to the company.
Almac Group has a long and consistent track record of recruiting apprentices, helping them to develop their knowledge and skills while contributing to our business through theoretical and work-based learning.
Almac’s partnership with SRC since 2016 has created 52 apprenticeship jobs, 39 of whom are still working for the company. 13 higher level apprentices were recruited in 2021, almost twice the number of 2020. Our vision is that within the next three years, Almac will have trained over 100 apprentices in collaboration with the SRC.
Kevin Reid, Global Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Development for Almac Group said: “The judges told us we won because our apprenticeship programme is clearly central to the future growth and development of the overall company. They recognised Almac’s significant, long-term investment in time and effort to ensure that not only do our apprentices develop their skills, but that they also thrive within the business.
“We are delighted to win this award and congratulations to everyone across the business who contributes to the success of our award winning apprenticeship programme, enabling us to be exceptional together.”
