Employer Academy of the Year


Bondholder RDS Global has been named Employer Academy of the Year at Bondholder Derby College Group’s Academy Awards 2019.

The annual event sees businesses across the region come together in recognition of the fantastic work being done by employers to positively impact local communities.

Employer Academy of the Year is awarded to employers working with students as part of Derby College’s innovative Employer Academy programme.

Andy Flinn, CEO of RDS Global said “For us, there are few things more important than giving young people the right tools, training and knowledge for success in future employment.”

“We are truly honoured to receive this award”.

In addition to winning an award on the night, RDS Global was highly commended in the category for helping to bridge the gap between education and employment; enabling students to make the transition into work by encouraging them to develop the necessary skills and confidence.

“We’re immensely proud of all our students and the exceptional ways they continue to apply everything they’ve learned during their placement with RDS,” continues Andy.

“I’d also like to give special thanks to the RDS Global team who dedicate their time and efforts to ensure the academy programme is a big success, and that every student is able to make the most out of the time they spend with us.”
