L to r Adam Walsh, Sue Jackson from Novus, Carol Richardson and Nick Elletson.
We’re proud as punch to be highly commended in a prestigious national award for our ongoing commitment to creating opportunities for disadvantaged and long-term unemployed jobseekers.
The joint accolade for our Foundation and The Right Fuelcard Company, which runs our Foundation, is from the Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) Employability Awards 2017.
As a finalist in the SME of the Year category following a nomination by our partner Novus, we are even more delighted with the honor – as commendations were only given to outstanding finalists.
Now in its fifth year, the national Employability Awards span ten categories, showcasing and championing best practice across the employment support sector.
They celebrate and recognise the hard work and achievements of those involved in supporting people into work. This ranges from advisors and partners working one-to-one with jobseekers at the frontline, to employers who look beyond traditional barriers, such as a criminal record, to the jobseekers themselves moving into employment.
The ceremony in London was attended by Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work, Penny Mordaunt MP and hosted by BBC journalist, Kirsty Lang.
Ranked 33 in the Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work For 2016, TRFC and our Foundation are proud of our strong track record of creating training and career opportunities for people from all walks of life.
Business director, Adam Walsh, says: “This commendation is another huge endorsement for our work in improving personal outcomes by looking beyond the circumstances of individuals. In identifying and developing the potential of each employee, we create long-term sales careers and boost business performance. Many thanks go to Novus for nominating us.”
We congratulate ERSA award winners: The House of St Barnabas; Adrian Bailey, Prisoners Abroad; TC Facilities Management; Access to Industry; Radian Employment Support and Training Team; Clacket Lane Motorway Services; Royal British Legion Industries; Get Set; Karla Gardner; and Tracy Fishwick.
