TCi wins Apprentice Employer of the Year!

As both sponsors and finalists at the #NDBLTawards, the TCi team were ready for a good evening

The prestigious North Devon Business, Leisure & Tourism Awards took place in beautiful surroundings at the High Bullen Hotel.

As previous winners of both the Business Growth award and the top award – Outstanding Business of the Year – in 2018, TCi was pleased to return as sponsors of the Business Growth award for 2019.

Having been shortlisted in the Apprentice Employer of the Year category, there was an additional level of excitement.

Alex Perkis, Operations Director, proudly presented the Business Growth award to winners, Essential Training. a company which began life operating from a garden shed in 2011. The other finalists included Cooper Golding Recruitment, Pickwell Manor and The Bucket List Company – each with impressive stories of growth and business development in North Devon, highlighting the incredible work that happens in the area.

The first award to be announced was the Apprentice Employer of the Year, sponsored by Petroc College. TCi took the award against strong competition from local waste contractor, SWM who have been developing an excellent apprenticeship programme and have also been contracted by TCi to provide a zero-waste-to-landfill refuse and recycling service.
