Zenith is the best performing Leeds-headquartered company on the Top 100 apprenticeship employers ranking. The achievement follows the expansion of the company’s apprenticeship scheme and continued investment in training.
Overall Zenith placed 36 in the Top 100 which celebrates the country's outstanding apprenticeship employers and will help potential apprentices, parents and careers advisers to easily identify apprenticeship opportunities with high performing employers.
Commenting on the achievement Marisa Waddington, HR director at Zenith, said: “Our people underpin everything we do. Our inclusion in the Top 100 apprenticeship employers 2020 is a fantastic achievement and testament to the hard work and dedication of our team.”
The news follows Zenith winning national recognition from HRH Princess Royal for an industry-leading training programme. It was one of a select few companies to win the award for the third time and was commended for a commitment to training and skills development, along with supporting a culture of compliance.
