Aggregate continues to inspire apprentices with renewal of 5% Club membership

  • 3 Oct 2018

Aggregate Industries has announced that it has renewed its membership with the 5% Club to continue its work inspiring, educating and retaining apprentices across its business.

Having signed the Club’s charter, the company has committed to playing its part in addressing youth unemployment and skills shortages. Aggregate has pledged to work towards having a minimum 5% of its UK workforce enrolled on formalised apprentice, student and/or graduate development schemes within five years.

James Roberts, Organisation & Human Resources Director at Aggregate Industries, comments: “As a company, our goals are very much aligned with the 5% Club’s aims, which is why we felt it was important to continue to join forces with like-minded organisations and further commit to investing in and equipping the country with the skilled workforce it needs to safeguard Britain’s economy.”

To date, over 320 businesses from across a variety of sectors have joined the 5% club to help meet the 5% target.
