Last updated: 08/02/2019

Cheltenham, UK – March 8th, 2019 – Somerford’s continued success in engaging and developing young apprentices has not gone unnoticed. We have been shortlisted as a finalist in the category ‘Small Employer of the Year’ by Gloucestershire Live; who host the annual Gloucestershire Apprenticeship Awards.

The awards are a celebration of the most promising young workplace talents, and also those who are providing them with the foundations to succeed. The evening, laid on at the Cheltenham Racecourse, bares the opportunity to reward outstanding apprentices and their achievements in these roles, whilst simultaneously supporting the companies who allow them to flourish. Businesses from across Gloucestershire are judged before the most inspiring finalists are decided, and Somerford have been picked out as a prime example.

Somerford Associates has a long history in encouraging aspiring young business people to develop. In a range of departments; such as finance, marketing and technical, several apprentices have been taken on by the company. “We have been utilising the tried and trusted Apprenticeship scheme and have seen the benefits of employing enthusiastic young people who are keen to start their career in an office workplace. They display a positive attitude and a willingness to learn new skills; applying themselves brilliantly in their new roles” said Andy Davies, Managing Director, Somerford Associates. The subsequent progression of a high proportion of these apprentices into full employment is further evidence as to the success that both Somerford, and their apprentices, have experienced as a part of the process. “Somerford intends to continue following this scheme which has proved so rewarding”, Andy Davies added.

The Gloucestershire Apprenticeship Awards 2019 will take place on Thursday 7th March 2019 in the Gold Cup Suite at Cheltenham Racecourse.
