Launching our new specialist recruitment site

We've unveiled a brand-new recruitment microsite as part of our ongoing commitment to investing in our staff and helping to bridge the skills gap.

As well as clearly highlighting all current vacancies from apprentice painters to quantity surveyors, and giving candidates the chance to easily apply for new positions, there’s also a host of useful information about us, all in one handy online hub.

With our head office in Stoke-on-Trent and 30 regional offices around the UK, we have around 1,000 permanent members of staff and counting.We've always put a great deal of emphasis on hiring the very best staff, as well as investing in continual training and development programmes, including our annual apprentice programme. Our commitment to staff development was just one of the reasons that we were named Employer of the Year at the Construction News Awards in 2015.

By exploring the new microsite, which also features profiles of staff from across the business, applicants can get the full picture of working life with us, including benefits on offer from getting involved in our wide-ranging CSR activities to undertaking relevant training opportunities and being recognised through our company-wide reward scheme.

#1 BIG 5 - LEEDS ACTION TO CREATE HOMES

For our first Big 5 project, we brought a derelict house back into use for a vulnerable person. We asked people to nominate a community building in desperate need of repair for a £20,000 building refurbishment which we would deliver in our 5th year of trading as Novus. Latch Charity Selection We selected Leeds as our first location and Leeds Action to Create Homes (LATCH) was the winner of our competition. Latch provides supported housing for homeless and vulnerable people. Building Refurbishment Work The house needed a serious amount of work as it was in a poor state. The kitchen, bathroom and heating system were replaced as everything was broken. We fitted various new joinery items and floor covering before redecorating the property throughout. The building refurbishment would have taken Latch a few months, but we were able to transform the property in two weeks for the tenant to start a fresh. The external of the property was painted, and our team and LATCH Volunteers carried out a joint project in the landscaping works for the new tenants to be able to enjoy the garden of their new home. We completed the building refurbishment of the two-bedroom house with new furniture. Tenant’s Feedback The tenant of the property said “It’s lovely, very warm. It’s a really nice house. It’s the best one bed house I’ve ever seen. It feels like there’s something off my shoulders, I don’t have to worry anymore.” Operations Manager’s Feedback Mark Rapley, Operations Manager for Novus who managed the project said ‘it’s amazing to see the impact Novus have had on someone’s life. It was a challenge to turn the major building refurbishment of the property around in 2 weeks, however it was truly worth the end result of being about to house vulnerable person and her son’.  Customer’s Feedback “Since moving into their lovely new home, the residents have been enjoying a much better quality of life.” Manjeet Gahir, Property Services Manager, LATCH Find Out More Find out more about our Big 5 campaign, or view more about the other projects here.
