Leading engineering company Spencer Group has been named the Best Place to Work at a prestigious awards ceremony.

Spencer Group, which employs more than 400 staff across the business, picked up the accolade at the 10th annual HullBID Awards.

HullBID is a not-for-profit organisation that works to enhance Hull city centre and represents over 780 businesses.

Awards were presented to ten winners in front of an audience of more than 320 at a gala celebration dinner at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel.

Spencer Group picked up the coveted Best Place to Work Award, sponsored by St Stephen’s shopping centre.

The award recognises its clear focus on diversity and inclusion, the apprenticeship opportunities it provides, training and development, staff wellbeing and social responsibility – all of which help make it a unique place to work.

Spencer Group is committed to recruiting and developing talented employees to improve their own skills as individuals and the wider talent pool across the industries it serves.

Young people join as apprentices or trainees and are able to work their way up through the company, progressing their careers in their chosen area of speciality.

Spencer Group is a flexible employer and also has a strong focus on sustainability and protecting the environment.

Marketing Manager Matt Mallory collected the award on the night. He said:

“We’re delighted to have been recognised as the Best Place to Work at the HullBID Awards.
