Sunderland College is delighted to be shortlisted in this year’s Sunderland Echo Portfolio Awards
This is the 16th anniversary of the awards and Sunderland College is joined by North East employers, Gentoo, Wonderful Wig Company and Kitui in the Employer of the Year category.
The category is sponsored by the Sunderland Echo and judges spent hours sifting through the nominations before deciding on the overall shortlist.
Sunderland College is also sponsoring this year’s Large Business of the Year category.
Iain Nixon, Vice Principal Partnerships and Commercial, at Sunderland College, said: “We’re always very excited to be part of the Sunderland Echo’s Portfolio Awards, and we are proud to be sponsoring the Large Business of the Year category again this year.
“This event is a great way to recognise and celebrate the achievements of individuals across the business community.
“As an organisation that is committed to delivering a careers-focused curriculum and creating outstanding learning opportunities for our students, we are delighted to support local initiatives that have a positive impact on the city.
“Working in partnership with more than 600 employers in the North East and beyond we are perfectly placed to witness first-hand the vital contribution businesses make to the local economy by bringing growth and innovation to the community.
“There are so many talented individuals and innovative businesses city-wide that greatly influence the people and communities they serve, and we are looking forward to celebrating the inspirational work of local businesses and to hear the stories of the individuals behind each business entry. Good luck to all of the businesses and individuals who are nominated.”
