Supporting the next generation of tradespeople

Neil Hand, Our CEO, who started with Novus as an apprentice explains the importance of apprenticeships

Supporting the next generation of tradespeople is integral to our business and it is something we have successfully done for over 80 years now.
This year we will recruit 21 apprentices across the country. The scheme is a fantastic chance for young people with the right attitude and potential to start to build a career with our support.
Our apprenticeship scheme provides people with personalised practical skills required for future roles in the industry. Our people will support our apprentices to develop their skills and maximise their potential and prepare them for future opportunities.
We want to inspire, empower and motivate people to make a difference. When I joined the company over 35 years ago, I never considered that I would become the CEO, but it’s a testament to the support network provided by the company that I was able to do so.
Each year we hold an Apprentice Selection week in August, where we bring all of the shortlisted apprentice hopefuls together to learn all of the Health and Safety knowledge you need before venturing out on site. We take the Apprentice hopefuls over to a chosen community project to put them to the test, under the watchful eye of a dedicated project team and our training team. Making a positive contribution and helping to improve people’s lives is such an important part of the Novus way, so this is a great start for a Novus apprentices’ career. 
We want people who believe in the Novus Way. (Read more about the Novus Way here)
