TheJobCrowd, dubbed the ‘TripAdvisor for jobs’, has published its 2018/19 official rankings, after analysis of surveys of existing employees at over 600 firms.
Cadent, the UK’s biggest gas network, has earned top spot for apprentices, rising from a fifth place ranking last year (Cadent’s first official year as a standalone business).
Comments left by its apprentices included:
‘Different scenarios on a daily basis, no two jobs are the same’
‘Working outdoors, freedom, driving, challenging, mentally stimulating’
‘I just love the job’
‘A great industry, with a lot of room to learn, improve and to progress’
‘Working within the community and making a difference’
Cadent also earned 20th place for graduates.
Chris Mead, head of HR at Cadent, said: “This is amazing news. We aspire to provide a rewarding and enjoyable career for our apprentices and graduates, so I am delighted they’ve given such positive feedback on their experience with us so far.”
Cadent recruits around 50 apprentices every year and also runs a graduate recruitment programme.
