Hackney Council has been named as one of the top 100 employers of school leavers in the country and shortlisted for the 2018 School Leaver Awards by AllAboutSchoolLeavers.co.uk.
The awards highlight the top UK employers for school and college leavers based on the experiences of apprentices and school leaver trainees who completed employee satisfaction surveys covering every aspect of their working lives – from job satisfaction and career progression to company culture and work-life balance.
The awards also consider the opportunities available to school leavers, including intermediate, advanced, higher and degree level apprenticeships, school leaver programmes and sponsored degrees. Hackney Council has been nominated in the ‘Top Employer – Public Sector’ category.
The Council is playing a leading role in providing opportunities for school leavers and last year launched Hackney Apprentices, an ambitious programme which will see 100 apprentices working at the Council during 2018/19.
