Mivan, the luxury fit out and bespoke joinery specialists, have won two awards at a celebration reception held recently at Mansion House, London. The 5% Club recognised its outstanding members by identifying 12 top performing companies across six award categories.
The event was attended by over 400 people and marked the end of The 5% Club Tenth Anniversary year, and saw the award winners drawn from insights and findings in The Club’s Employer Audit research conducted earlier in the year. One hundred and eighty employers who participated in this year’s Employer Audit Scheme to gain accredited Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze membership of The Club were shortlisted for the awards.
Mivan won the Employer of the Year Award sponsored by City & Guilds and the Breadth and Balance Award sponsored by the Open University – this followed the achievement of Gold Membership earlier this year. The recent Employer Audit identified that Mivan has a total of 53 employees in an ‘earn and learn’ position, from its workforce of 211 employees. This means that 25.1% of employees are in ‘earn and learn’ roles. The audit, and now award, also highlighted the breadth and balance of the career development schemes such as The Navigate Programme and the Apprenticeship Programme.
John Cunningham, CEO, Mivan, said, “These two awards are a great endorsement of what Mivan has achieved over the last couple of years. The number of ‘earn & learn’ positions we offered in 2021 was twelve. The 2024 / 25 recruitment has already started, and we are looking to add another 27 individuals. I am very proud we have more than doubled the number of the opportunities Mivan offer to young people. As the audit showed more than a quarter of Mivan employees are currently engaged in earning and learning. The future is very bright.”
Karen Anderson, HR Manager, Mivan added, “Each year the need for new entrants into construction grows greater and greater. I believe Mivan has the best approach. We provide structured career pathways for apprentices, higher level apprenticeships, student placements and graduates. I am sure this recognition will boost the number of applicants of The Navigate Programme.”
