RRL has been named as SME Employer of the Year at the recent Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards.

The ceremony took place on Friday 12 October and brought businesses and apprentices from across Cornwall together to celebrate the work of those studying for apprenticeships and their employers.

Partner Stephen Gainey accepted the award on the night on behalf of the firm and was understandably pleased: “I was delighted to be at the 2018 Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards ceremony and receive the award on behalf of the firm! It not only reflects fantastically on the firm but also on all of our present apprentices and those who have progressed through the firm via apprenticeships.

“All of the team have had a part to play in this success, whether acting as apprentice buddies, helping to train or just being there to answer questions. With our nomination earlier this year for a national Taxation Award, what a year 2018 is turning out to be for the firm! Well done everyone.”

RRL was named as one of Truro College’s Outstanding Apprenticeship Employers earlier this year and continued the firm’s proud tradition of supporting apprenticeship learning, by recruiting four new apprentices over the summer.

Partner Nick Skerratt explained what the award meant to the firm: “2018 has been a big year for RRL and it is brilliant to receive this recognition for the firm. We started the year by unveiling our new brand and have since opened a new office in Penzance, launched our new website and expanded the firm’s probate offering, showing the firm’s ambition for the future. With the introduction of Making Tax Digital in April 2019 and some exciting projects planned for the firm next year, it is onwards and upwards for RRL.”
