A Matlock accountancy firm has been named as one of the best employers in the region.
Coleman Bradshaw, based in Bank Road was highly commended in the National Apprenticeship Awards and National Training Awards 2012.
The business was the regional finalist in the Small Employer of the Year category in the joint awards, organised by the National Apprenticeship Service.
Scott Bradshaw, one of the company directors along with his wife, Hayley, said: “We are delighted that our strong values of giving young people opportunity and responsibility early in their careers has received such glowing recognition.
“It also says a lot about the ambition and commitment of our apprentices, to be able to play such major roles in our business”
The firm has employed and trained nine apprentices in the seven years it has been established.
The National Training Awards recognise organisations that have delivered outstanding training programmes and the National Apprenticeship Awards celebrate the achievements of the country’s most outstanding Apprenticeship employers and their apprentices.
Karen Woodward, Divisional Apprenticeship Director, from the service, said: “This year’s awards were a terrific showcase of the outstanding wealth of talent that we have across the East Midlands.
“Given the volume and high calibre of entries we received, I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Coleman Bradshaw for this superb achievement.”
