We are delighted to have achieved the prestigious Investors in Young People Gold Accreditation. IIYP is the only people management standard that focuses on an employer’s recruitment and retention of young people. This represents a true commitment to the training and development of young people. The award demonstrates us an employer of choice for young people and testament to their effective practices around Youth Employment. Having now achieved the gold accreditation, we proudly display the Investors in Young People gold logo and plaque. Investors in Young People Logo Richard Tasker, Managing Director commented “we are delighted to receive this recognition for both ourselves and the young people we employ, as well as those we place into jobs at other companies. This year has been a very good year for our business. The growth wouldn’t have been possible without the input of our young workers and what they bring to our team.” Sixth Sense Training Career Day Peter Russian, Chief Executive of Investors in People Scotland, said “The Investors in Young People framework not only recognises and supports organisations in the employment of young people, but marks them out as an employer of choice. The benefits of recruiting and developing young people are countless. These include the creation of a talent pool for the future, new and increased skills in areas such as IT and social media. Fresh eyes and mindsets into business operations along with enthusiasm and unique talents.”
