Employee-owned marine design and engineering company Houlder took the crown as ‘NCWE Work Placement of the Year Best SME’ on March 20, in recognition of its engineering, naval architecture, project control, finance and business development work placements.

The National Council for Work Experience (NCWE) Awards received a record number of entries this year, with around 200 organizations from across the UK competing for a total of 28 awards. The judging panel represented the full internship process through a number of senior professionals, including specialists from Regent’s College.

“We’re delighted to have been recognized by NCWE,” said Margot Freeman, Houlder’s HR Manager. “At a time when many companies are cutting back, we remain committed to continuing to take advantage of the graduate talent pool from both the UK and overseas - consistently gaining tangible business benefits by doing so”
