Linda Lewis Kitchens Ltd (LLK) has been crowned the winner at this year’s Oldham Business Awards in the ‘Supporting Young People’ category.
The event, held annually at The Queen Elizabeth Hall was a night to remember for LLK’s team members who were presented their award by comedian, Romesh Ranganathan, who also provided the entertainment for the evening.
Representatives for LLK on the night, Jenna Lewis, business development manager, and Grace Carr, digital marketing executive, were commended by the judges from NatWest, Oldham College and Doing Business for Yourself for the company’s ‘dedication and commitment to providing employees with training and the opportunity for development in the workplace’.
The pizza oven specialist has 73% of its staff under 30, with 100% of that figure embarking on relevant apprenticeships and training courses whilst employed at LLK to further their development and aid a successful career in the industry.
MD Linda Lewis, who has previously won an Oldham Business Award back in 2013 for Business Woman of the Year, stated: “We are very proud to be recognised by our local peers. The continuous training and development of my team makes them invaluable to LLK as a business.”
Jenna Lewis commented: “Grace and I were honoured to accept the award on behalf of LLK. Our loyal and hardworking team are what make LLK a success and it’s very humbling to receive recognition for that.”
