Avison Young named an employer of choice for the second year running8 Jul 2019
The Job Crowd, the UK’s leading graduate and apprenticeship guide, has awarded Avison Young as a Top 100 Employer for both graduates and apprentices for the second year in a row. In addition, Avison Young took the award for best culture for apprenticeship employers.
The rankings for this guide are entirely dependent on anonymous feedback from the company’s current graduates and apprentices, meaning success is dependent on what trainees think of a company. Each company is scored across eight criteria from training and support to colleagues and career opportunities. Avison Young’s feedback frequently cited the high levels of support and training offered to graduates, Avison Young’s inclusive and diverse working environment, as well as the breadth of Avison Young’s service lines providing exposure to a range of sectors, clients and skill-sets.
Jason Sibthorpe, President of Avison Young UK said: “The graduate and apprentice programmes are extremely close to my heart, and I am passionate about developing the next generation of industry leaders. We are committed to creating and maintaining an environment that enables our team members to bring their whole self to work, and I think this is what makes us an employer of choice, and also what makes us so valuable to our clients.”
Em Islip, Future Talent Manager at Avison Young said: “My colleague Nuz Merali and I are incredibly excited that our trainees have voted Avison Young as an employer of choice. This award is a huge testament to the culture at Avison Young, which is truly focussed empowering our people to achieve their career ambitions. Despite our recent success, we are not complacent and will continue to look for ways to continually improve our programme offering at Avison Young.”
