CCRS Brokers have been shortlisted for two awards. The award winners will be announced at the upcoming Glasgow Guarantee Celebration and Awards event. The two categories are ‘Glasgow Guarantee Fair Employer 2019 – 50 or less employees’ and ‘Modern Apprentice of the Year’
CCRS have a long history of employing Apprentices in partnership with Glasgow Guarantee. The majority of which still form part of the CCRS team. CCRS have significantly strengthened our team through the diverse range of talent Modern Apprenticeships provide. As a result, CCRS has developed its own Youth Strategy to develop and harness young talent and to give back to the community. Schemes such as Glasgow Guarantee allow us to achieve this, so we are delighted to receive this level of recognition.
CCRS Brokers – A Fair Employer
We are very proud to be nominated for the ‘Glasgow Guarantee Fair Employer 2019 – 50 or less employees’ award. CCRS is fully committed to fair work practices. This is demonstrated by the wide range of policies we have implemented, such as anti-bullying, equality and diversity, special/emergency leave and our maternity/paternity policies.
We were awarded a Silver Accreditation by the Investors in Young People (IIYP) and are working towards our Gold accreditation. We were recently recognised as employer of the month by Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) for our investment and commitment to recruiting, developing and retaining the apprentices within our organisation. CCRS also pay a living wage to all staff and do not offer zero-hour contracts.
Modern Apprentice of the Year Award
A huge congratulations to our very own Shaun Coyle, who has been nominated for ‘Modern Apprentice of the Year’.
Shaun joined CCRS Brokers as an Accounts Modern Apprentice. He has quickly proven himself to be a tremendous asset to the accounts department and a key member of the CCRS team. Shaun has been instrumental in transforming the accounting function of the business and his dedication to his personal skill development and training is inspiring.
We wish Shaun the best of luck at the awards and everyone at CCRS Brokers is rooting for him!
The Glasgow Guarantee Celebration and Awards Event will be held on the 30th January at the Glasgow City Chambers. Councillor Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council will host the event.
