JN Bentley upholds gold membership of The 5% Club

JN Bentley is delighted to have been awarded gold membership of The 5% Club for the second year running, following the annual Employer Audit Scheme.


As one of just 119 gold standard employers, JN Bentley is proud to continually support early careers and development opportunities, recognising a long-standing tradition of investing in apprenticeships, placements, and graduate schemes.


The 5% Club is a dynamic movement of employers committed to providing ‘earn and learn’ opportunities through apprenticeships, sponsored student course placements and graduate training schemes as part of building and developing the workforce they need for the future. The Club exists to help its members and all employers to further increase the number, quality and range of earn and learn opportunities across the UK.


In joining The 5% Club, members aspire to achieve at least 5% of their workforce in ‘earn and learn’ positions – including apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on formalised training schemes. Over 10% of JN Bentley’s workforce are currently employed in these roles across the company, with 129 new starters joining the organisation throughout 2023 – a number that will continue to increase with the growth of the business.


Following the announcement, Judith Jeffery, HR Director, said, "We are pleased to have maintained our gold membership with The 5% Club – an achievement that belongs to all of us at JN Bentley. It represents our collective advocacy and investment in supporting those at the start of their careers in construction and engineering.


"Progress and excellence are key principles at JN Bentley, so providing young people with the opportunity to develop into the professionals of the future is both a business and social imperative."


Helen Bradford, Lead Learning and Development Advisor, added, "Our early careers programme continues to grow, providing a valuable gateway into the industry, helping apprentices, placement students and graduates establish and build fulfilling careers.


"The 5% Club is the kitemark of responsible employers - gold membership is a fantastic achievement and really highlights our dedication to our people and recognises us as a top early careers employer in the UK."


Within the last year JN Bentley is pleased to have also been awarded the Advanced People Experience Pioneer Summit Award, in the People Experience Excellence category, for its leading approach to performance management. Find out more here.
