We’re proud to take home the Apprentice Employer award

Apprenticeships, Awards, young people

It was a proud moment for us when we were recognised for our work with apprentices by winning the Apprentice Employer of the Year award last week at the Nottingham Post Business awards. We first started offering apprenticeships in 2002 and since then more than 20 people have successfully progressed through our  schemes.

 Mark Slade, our Managing Partner, said:  “This is such a proud moment for me, and for the firm as a whole. Growing our own team is part of who we are and why we continue to grow and progress as a firm. It’s not about ticking boxes or hitting targets; it’s about offering work-based learning to people who can make a difference.”

 “And make a difference they certainly do. We have people who have completed their apprenticeships and have gone on to more senior roles here at Fidler & Pepper. So, when we say this award is a team effort, we really mean it.”

Wendy Walker, our Conveyancing Operations Manager said: “We’re so proud of the amazing group of apprentices we have the pleasure to work with every single day. It’s so rewarding to watch local, young people follow a fantastic career path.”

One of our apprentices Lucy Cowe, a recent Apprentice of the Year winner, said: “An apprenticeship is perfect for me and I love working here. The award is brilliant news and well deserved.”

Recruiting, training and developing apprentices is at the heart of our ‘grow our own’ people development strategy and we are proud of the people we have working for us and how much they have developed. We will continue to support our staff and provide training opportunities as this supports our great people and makes business sense.
