We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Gold accredited membership via The 5% Club’s 2022-23 Employer Audit Scheme. This award recognises our significant contribution to the continued development of all our Employees through “earn & learn” schemes such as Apprenticeships, Graduate Schemes and Sponsored Students Course Placements.
We are proud of our investment in our staff members, which is why we joined The 5% Club. The 5% Club is a dynamic movement of Employers all of whom are inspired to take positive action for increased, inclusive, and accessible workplace training for all. With a membership which now exceeds 750 companies, The 5% Club represents over 1.6 Million Employees, 93,500 of whom are in “earn and learn” schemes. The Employer Audit is a unique scheme which validates the employers’ activities, explores their future plans and commitments, as well as examining their approaches to quality, social mobility, diversity and inclusion.
From an impressive list of 129 members, Kingerlee Ltd was one of the 107 Employers who met the Gold Standard

“Construction continues to suffer with a lack of skills and it is important that as a business we continue to promote a career in construction by developing not only new but the existing staff and in the long term we will hopefully help plug the skills gap. Kingerlee is committed to the ongoing development of staff through “earn and learn” skills training. Learning does not stop when you leave school and as a business, it is important that we give our people the opportunity to learn and grow by investing in their training and development. In an economy that is struggling to recruit and retain talent, by committing to the 5% Club we are showing a commitment to our people”
Kingerlee are proud to have been awarded gold membership in only our first year and would encourage any employer to take up membership of the 5% Club irrespective of size”
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 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 750 members, I am always impressed at the commitment, drive and energy our members' channel into offering “earn and learn” skills opportunities. To now see so many of these members gain Bronze, Silver and Gold accredited membership of The Club is inspiring and demonstrates how these companies are all contributing to the future of skills in our economy.”
