We’re pleased to announce that we have been awarded the first ‘Commitment to Apprenticeships 2020′ award by DBC Training.

The DBC Apprenticeship Awards were held to showcase the diverse range of sectors engaged with apprenticeships and the success stories of those who have embraced them with enthusiasm. The ceremony took place on the 7th of February at the Book Cafe in Derby, with Orbital Recruitment taking the award for the first-ever Commitment to Apprenticeships award.

“Injecting some youthful talent adds a whole new dimension to our workplace, bringing with it a fresh perspective and new ideas. The apprenticeship scheme has been a great success at Orbital, not only for the apprentices but overall business productivity.”

Comments Mark Burton, Company Director.

“Apprenticeships are helping Orbital to thrive and the talent we attract to follow their dreams and reach for their goals within a supportive environment. To be recognised for our commitment is great, we’re extremely proud to have secured such an award but also to have such dedicated and hardworking team members.”
