Camelot UK has placed 35th in The Sunday Times Best 100 Mid Companies 2020 after the list was revealed last night.

The National Lottery operator place on the list represents the 100 companies in the mid category with the highest Best Companies Index scores.

To be part of the ‘mid’ category, an organisation must employ at least 250 full-time employees and achieve one of the 100 highest Best Companies Index score in the category. 

Camelot’s CEO Nigel Railton said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Camelot has been recognised as one of the best companies to work for in the UK. I’ve been with Camelot since 1998 and have always known it’s a remarkable place to work.

“Since being appointed CEO in 2017, and with the help of our fantastic People Team and some great advocates around the business, we’ve worked really hard to make everybody feel truly valued and engaged.“

Camelot has been the sole operator of the National Lottery since 1994. Together they have raised more than £40 billion for good causes over the last 25 years.

This award comes nearly a month after Camelot entered the next phase of its ‘Being A Responsible Retailer: Supporting Healthy Play’ retailer training.

After two-years of research and development, Camelot will now see their retail partners gain access to face-to-face refresher training with a new ‘Supporting Healthy Play’ leaflet being provided.

Railton added: “We’ve also focused on helping them to fully appreciate that the work they do changes lives in two ways – through the winners that The National Lottery creates, with more than 30 millionaires each month, and the Good Causes that National Lottery players support to the tune of over £30 million each and every week.”

Camelots’ future with the National Lottery is under threat as they face rival bids from challengers, including Sir Richard Branson for the contract to run the lottery from 2023.
