For our part, we continue to invest in our apprenticeship programme, providing employment opportunities for local people and we remain committed to keeping professional and skilled manufacturing jobs in Kirklees for many years to come. We work very hard to stay in touch with our local community and get involved wherever we can. Syngenta in Huddersfield recently opened a Community Science Lab for local schools and we are active in our community through our Employees Community Gift Scheme and our annual Connecting Communities events.

We appeal to all community groups to nominate the people that they believe deserve recognition as champions in our communities.
