Inspec Solutions Ltd nominated for SME Employer of the year

22nd July 2021

Inspec Solutions Ltd are incredibly pleased to be nominated for SME Employer of the year by Sheffield Hallam University for the Sheffield City Region Apprenticeship Awards.

These awards recognise and reward both the apprentices and their employers that are excelling across the Sheffield City Region, covering Sheffield, Doncaster, Barnsley & Rotherham and Derbyshire and Worksop.

Inspec Solutions Ltd have been recruiting Degree Apprentices to develop new talent since 2017 and currently have seven Degree Apprentices working full-time while studying for a BEng (Hons) at Sheffield Hallam.  For an SME, they believe that this shows a huge commitment to apprenticeships. They regularly attend Degree Apprenticeship Fairs to promote their opportunities to young people and parents and have recently joined the 5 club.

Jane Stockton-Wood, Apprentice Mentor said “Our apprentices have excelled in their university studies and have integrated fully into the team. All of them have been involved in various projects with a range of clients, which has added huge value to the business.”

In addition, Inspec Solutions have a proven track record of recruiting women apprentice engineers, which shows a fantastic commitment to diversity in a male-dominated industry.

Anita Kudelko, apprentice engineer said, “I will gain degree-level academic and practical skills in Control Systems Engineering and I will graduate with several years of industry experience I wouldn’t get on a traditional learning route.”

Mark Ritson, MD, added that “Sheffield is a hub of incredible talent, and by offering our degree apprenticeships in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University, we’re providing an unparalleled standard of technical education alongside a competitive wage. The benefits to both apprentices and employers are clear; they bring a new perspective and future talent to the business whilst being committed, passionate and eager to learn.”
