Apprentice success as we build for the future
We've recently taken on 17 new apprentices after putting a talented group through their paces during our Apprentice Week initiative.

Young applicants from a range of different trades, including painters and decorators, joiners and multi trades, were selected to take part in the our Apprentice Week programme at our head office in Stoke-on-Trent, in which candidates undertake a number of practical building challenges as well as health and safety training.
 
The participants were assessed against various criteria, including work ethic, initiative, and communication skills, whilst working on a two-day project to create a new allotment at Thistley Hough Academy in Stoke-on-Trent for the benefit of the local community, encapsulating our values as a company. 
 
The programme culminated with each candidate being interviewed by board members, and, after a meeting involving all the directors, 17 successful individuals were offered an apprenticeship. With both managing director Neil Hand and chairman Stuart Seddon having started their careers as apprentices with us, hiring the next generation of apprentices is something which the directors take a keen interest in.
 
All of this year’s successful apprentices will be entered into our Apprentice of the Year award, the winner of which will be announced in December.
 
Stuart Seddon said: "Apprentices have been hugely important to the success and longevity of Novus Property Solutions over the course of our history. Having individuals throughout the business who have cultivated a deep understanding of the company’s principles, its ethos, and its values helps to breed a strong culture of unity and solidarity throughout our staff.
 
“I would like to congratulate this year’s successful apprentices for showing the qualities we look for and working so hard to achieve the reward of a place within the company.”
