Middlemarch Environmental Ltd commit to a minimum of 5% of its staff enrolled on formal apprenticeships, sponsored students and/or graduate development schemes for the next five years. This forms part of a wide sustainability strategy to facilitate the growth of the company and show commitment to making a difference to the UK’s prosperity.
Ecology as a sector recognises both experience and qualifications with equal merit which is helping develop a strong futureproof sector. This will help address the country’s skills shortage and recognises the importance of developing people as both a business and social imperative.
Dr Phillip Fermor, Managing Director, reports that “Middlemarch have always been committed to emerging talent and supporting the next generation. By joining the 5% club we have formally declared our intentions to continue our sponsorship of these individuals and many more in future years.”
