Hopwood Hall College makes Sunday Times top 100 organisations


Hopwood Hall College has been ranked as the 68th ‘Best Not-For-Profit Organisation’ in the Sunday Times’ Top 100 Employers awards.

The Rochdale and Middleton-based further education college broke into the prestigious list after being recognised for their support of staff, internal health and wellbeing activities and extensive community and charity events. 87% of the College’s staff gave their employer a positive score to The Sunday Times’.

Furthermore, the College was the only Rochdale based organisation to make the Top 100 and one of only three not-for-profits based in Greater Manchester.

Only two other education establishments in the whole of the UK made the list and only seven not-for-profit organisations bettered Hopwood Hall College’s charitable achievements.
