The UK’s leading producers of fish and seafood have been named Youth Employer of the Month on the one-year anniversary of the Skills Development Scotland’s (SDS) Awards.

Dawnfresh received the SDS Award when Youth and Women’s Employment Minister Annabelle Ewing visited the company’s Uddingston headquarters in March. The Awards are given to businesses that show continuous commitment to getting young people into work.

Chairman of SDS, John McClelland CBE, said: “Dawnfresh consistently displays the core values which define our Youth Employer of the Month Award and I congratulate them on receiving the award at this time. The company’s commitment to young people and the importance it has placed on offering valuable employability training and apprenticeship opportunities is to be commended.”

Uddingston-based Dawnfresh recruited Modern Apprentices through the food and drink sector’s Tasty Jobs initiative, which incorporates SDS’s Certificate of Work Readiness employability qualification.

Ms Ewing said: “Since starting the Awards SDS has recognised the tremendous investment shown by companies from Shetland to the Scottish Borders, in sectors such as life sciences and finance and by organisations of all sizes from global companies to micro businesses.
