Severfield is awarded Gold membership by The 5% Club

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Gold accredited membership via The 5% Club’s 2022-23 Employer Audit Scheme.

This award recognises our significant contribution to the continued development of all our employees through “earn & learn” schemes such as Apprenticeships, Graduate Schemes and Sponsored Students Course Placements.

We are proud of our investment in our staff members, which is why we joined The 5% Club. The 5% Club is a dynamic movement of Employers all of whom are inspired to take positive action for increased, inclusive, and accessible workplace training for all. With a membership which now exceeds 750 companies, The 5% Club represents over 1.6 Million Employees, 93,500 of whom are in “earn and learn” schemes. The Employer Audit is a unique scheme which validates the employers’ activities, explores their future plans and commitments, as well as examining their approaches to quality, social mobility, diversity and inclusion.

From an impressive list of 129 members, Severfield was one of the 107 Employers who met the Gold Standard; 14 employers who met the Silver Standard; 8 employers who met the Bronze Standard.

Mark Cameron OBE, Chief Executive at The 5% Club said, “Our Employer Audit scheme recognises the efforts of all those Employers who invest in their workforce through a broad range of workplace learning schemes. It is fantastic that in these challenging times so many are able to commit to the Employer Audit and to gain the credit for their efforts, and that the majority are striving to expand their schemes over the coming years. Their efforts and achievements are to be applauded.”

Proven commitment to investing in our workforce.

Severfields Early Careers Manager, Jill Jenkins said “Achieving Gold membership of the 5% Club, demonstrates our proven commitment to investing in our workforce through a broad range of “earn & learn” programmes. We will continue to build on this commitment and deliver through our in-house Learning Academy with dedicated training, development, and investment in our people, whilst supporting our business to be the best, every day”.
