Now in its 26th year, the awards are a firmly established highlight in the region’s business calendar.
We are thrilled to have been chosen as one of three finalists in two separate categories – for both Small Business and Apprentice of the Year Awards:
Small Business of the Year Award
This award recognises the achievements of businesses in Nottinghamshire, with a turnover of less than £2 million, which have demonstrated outstanding success during their latest financial year.
This nomination comes at an exciting time for Air-IT since we have experienced significant growth over the past year, with further plans for expansion underway for the remainder of 2012 and beyond.
The continual investment and improvement in our staff, operations and service portfolio has meant that we have been able to consistently deliver high quality IT services to meet the growing demands of our ever increasing client base.
Apprentice of the Year Award
The Apprentice of the Year Award recognises the practical and theoretical progress being made by young people in the work place and education and rewards those that demonstrate a real commitment to improving their skill levels.
We were very pleased to nominate Help Desk Technician Josh Turner, who joined us in June 2011 as part of the Microsoft Advanced IT Apprenticeship Scheme.
Josh has made an immediate impact since joining the business and has excelled in his position to become an integral and valuable member of our support team. We therefore felt that he was a worthy contender for this award and are extremely pleased that he has been shortlisted as a finalist.
Josh Turner, Finalist Apprentice of the Year Award
The winners of each category will be announced at a presentation Awards Dinner which is being held at the Council Houses in Nottingham, on Wednesday 4th July. This promises to be one of the most prestigious business events of the year and will be attended by the region’s leading industrialists, business people and media figures.
As a local company we are very proud of our Nottingham heritage and to reach the finals of these prestigious awards is a major achievement in itself due to the large number of entrants in this high profile competition.
We would like to thank all our staff for their continued commitment to Air-IT and all their hard work that has enabled us to reach the final stages of both award categories.
