EDAM Launches Apprenticeship Scheme

EDAM Group launches Manchester-based Apprenticeship Scheme after Best Companies accolade

May 2018

Manchester-based EDAM Group, a specialist credit hire service provider, has been ranked alongside the best-known businesses in the UK by the ‘Best Companies’ workplace rating initiative. EDAM Group has been awarded one-star accreditation from Best Companies, an accolade that signifies ‘very good’ levels of workplace engagement.

The one-star rating coincides with EDAM Group launching its Apprenticeship Scheme, which will see opportunities provided to 16-18-year olds from Manchester and the surrounding areas. Initially with three roles – in the operations, finance and recoveries teams – the scheme will provide participants with valuable work experience with a formal support network in place through the company’s HR team and dedicated line managers.

The programme will be run in conjuction with quality training providers including InTraining and Kaplan, with EDAM Group committing to providing a substansive position in the team upon completion of the apprenticeship. The first three roles will start this summer.

“We’re proud to give something back to the Manchester area with thanks to the hard work that our colleagues so frequently deliver. As our business continues to expand, in turn earning recognition like this from the Best Companies rating, we can look to invest in more schemes for apprenticeships and continued recruitment in the area,” said Gary Mitchell, HR Director at EDAM Group.

EDAM Group scored highly in multiple factors of the Best Companies survey, specifically the ‘Leadership’, ‘My Team’ and ‘Giving Something Back’ categories. The one-star accolade progresses EDAM’s ‘One to Watch’ status achieved with Best Companies last year.

Used by EDAM Group to measure engagement across the team, the Best Companies initiative means team members can provide honest, anonymous input to the senior leadership team, who then act upon the suggestions to improve the working environment.

Positive employee engagement has always been a priority of EDAM Group, but it has more relevance than ever before as the company continues to experience significant levels of growth. As the Manchester-based team continues to expand, ensuring the teams and working cultures adapt to suit the evolving organisational structure is essential to maintain its industry-leading levels of customer service.
