Hear why our central support apprentices love working at Novus

This week is National Apprenticeship Week in the UK, so we asked our central support apprentices what they love about working at Novus.

Taylor Williams – Business Admin Apprentice







“I’ve really enjoyed my time working for Novus so far, mainly due to the friendly warm welcome provided from all the team! I was immediately considered as part of the family and from day one, my contribution was appreciated. It is easy to see the family values embodied by the whole team – all colleagues are happy to help you, regardless of the department they work in.

As a new starter I’ve been provided with a range of opportunities already, which are helping to accelerate my career journey. I’ve learnt a significant number of skills while also having the chance to develop and improve on skills I already had.

I’ve experienced such help and guidance so far, and the current progression I’m making through my apprenticeship is fantastic.”

Amber Leese – HR Support







“I really enjoy working for Novus as the team are always so supportive and ready to help! Across the whole business, everyone is keen to welcome you and learn more about you as a person. This is fantastic for a new starter and helps you to easily begin building relationships to assist your career.

So far, my apprenticeship has already offered me many new opportunities, and I’ve been able to quickly apply the things I’ve learnt to my everyday role. For the better, I have been pushed out of my comfort zone and discovered many new skills which I’m extremely thankful for.

My confidence has grown a lot since starting with Novus, and I definitely feel that I’ve made the right step for my career – from Retail Supervisor to People team member.”

Ryan Connew – Trainee Quantity Surveyor

“One of the things I like about working for Novus, is the insight and information I regularly gain from more experienced colleagues. As the business completes projects across a range of sectors, I have been able to enhance my overall industry knowledge by working on different contracts. Through this opportunity, and with the support of the team over the past two years, I’ve really grown in confidence as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor.

I’ve had the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience to support the completion of my qualification, and I’m grateful for the opportunity the apprenticeship has given me in starting my career.”
