Pointer has been recognised for its commitment to employing young people with the presentation of the Investors in Young People (IIYP) Gold Award by Minister for Youth and Women’s Employment, Annabelle Ewing MSP.

Speaking at the presentation, the Minister said: “I am delighted that Pointer has been recognised for its commitment to employing and investing in young people. Over the last few years Pointer has introduced a number of youth employment programmes for staff who want to pursue a career in the risk and security management sector.

“This is the perfect example of what companies in the risk sector can do. It offers recruitment and training opportunities to provide good development opportunities for young people so they can plan ahead and develop long term plans and ambitions. This accreditation is a very significant achievement and is indicative of the culture that they have created that puts young people at the heart of how they achieve their results.”
