We’re excited to announce that Coyle Personnel has been recognised with a Gold membership by The 5% Club’s latest Employer Audit. This honour highlights our efforts to develop our team’s skills through practical learning opportunities, including apprenticeships and various educational placements.

Joining The 5% Club was a step toward our goal of providing meaningful, accessible training to our staff. With a community that’s now over 900 strong, The 5% Club reflects the shared commitment of more than 1.6 million employees, with 101,000 actively engaged in combined learning and working programs. The Employer Audit isn’t just an award; it’s proof of our ongoing dedication to bettering our team’s skills and careers, while also focusing on the important issues of equal opportunity, community impact, and open access to education.

Speaking on the benefit of apprenticeships, Nick Markwell, Manager of Coyle Rail, said; "Apprenticeships are very important for the Railway side of our business, bringing much needed new talent to our industry to support the railway network for future generations. We are very proud to achieve Gold membership of the 5% club, and feel it reflects the commitment and hard work we put into making railway apprenticeships a success."

Standing among a select group of companies, we’re proud to say that Coyle Personnel is one of the 120 that met the stringent Gold Standard criteria.

Zara Woodman, Social Value Lead at Coyle Personnel, said, “Being in the 5% club as a gold member is an incredible achievement. Through apprenticeships, we not only create success but also drive positive social change, enhancing lives and communities along the way, ultimately leaving a lasting legacy of progress and opportunity.”

Mark Cameron OBE, Chief Executive at The 5% Club, said, “Our Employer Audit scheme recognises the efforts of all those Employers who invest in their workforce through a broad range of workplace learning schemes. It is fantastic that in these challenging times so many are able to commit to the Employer Audit and to gain the credit for their efforts, and that the majority are striving to expand their schemes over the coming years. Their efforts and achievements are to be applauded.”

Gill Cronin, Director of Operations at The 5% Club, added: “Having seen The Club grow to more than 900 members, I am always impressed at the commitment, drive and energy our members channel into offering “earn and learn” skills opportunities. To now see 20 percent of these members gain Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum accredited membership of The Club is inspiring and demonstrates how these companies are all contributing to the future of skills in our economy.”
