Redrow is awarded Platinum membership by The 5% Club

9th November 2023

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Platinum accredited membership via The 5% Club’s 2023-24 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.


Launched to mark The 5% Club’s 10th Anniversary this year, The Club introduced the new “top” tier of Platinum Membership that can be achieved through the Employer Audit Scheme. Platinum members are participants who have achieved Gold Membership in three consecutive years, and who in their third year have 10% or more staff members “earning and learning”.


From an impressive list of 180 audit participants, we were one of only 30 Employers who met the Platinum Standard, meaning we’re in the top 3 percent of members of The 5% Club achieving this prestigious top level.


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.


Karen Jones, HR Director for Redrow said: ‘We’re extremely proud to have been awarded the Platinum membership for our commitment to employee development. In light of national skills shortages our role as an employer and trainer has become even more important. With the future pipeline of talent always in mind, we undertake outreach to schools, inspiring and supporting youngsters in areas of low social mobility. The Platinum membership is also great recognition for our colleagues who have sought to embrace diversity in all aspects of the business; creating an environment where employees can fulfil their potential.”


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. Even more impressive is the 3 percent who have achieved Platinum level membership - they represent the very best of our movement and of employers offering ‘earn and learn’ opportunities.”
