Peter Duffy Limited joins other local and nationally recognised companies in committing to a 5-year plan to invest in the development of people coming in to the business; to achieve a target of recruiting at least 5% of our workforce into apprenticeships, sponsored formalised training and graduate schemes over the course of the next five years. We have made a good start, we already employ apprentices and we have a graduate programme in place. This is a big commitment to our local community and we hope that our recruitment plans benefit both the communities in which we work as well as our business.

Overall we are pledging to:

  • Helping the country‚Äôs growth agenda and acknowledging the importance of developing our people as both a business and social imperative
  • Play our part in addressing youth unemployment and skills shortage
  • Measuring and reporting on our progress annual against our target
  • Share the benefits of membership with other businesses and encouraging them to join this campaign
