McCann Commits To ‘Earn And Learn’ By Joining The 5% Club

Nottingham-based civil and electrical engineering firm McCann has joined The 5% Club, an industry led initiative focussed on driving momentum into the recruitment of apprentices, graduates and sponsored students.

The 5% Club is a movement of more than 250 employers providing ‘earn and learn’ opportunities to develop the skills and talents people need to become more employable and create meaningful careers.

Companies joining The 5% Club commit to raising the number of apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on formal programmes to 5% of their total workforce within five years. Members are also asked to publicly report their progress in their Annual Report. Existing members range from SMEs to FTSEs and cover a number of diverse industries, from engineering through to the legal sector.

McCann has joined The 5% Club to highlight its commitment to offering apprenticeships within the civil and electrical engineering industry. The business currently employs 195 full-time members of staff – eight of which are studying for an apprenticeship at varying levels. Another apprentice will be joining the company in mid-November taking the total tally up to nine.

“McCann is firmly committed to the betterment of our country through the improvement of young workers” says John McCann, managing director at McCann. “We believe that the 5% Club wholly embodies our own corporate beliefs and responsibilities towards reducing youth unemployment and skill shortages.”
