Novus launches 2015 apprentice recruitment drive

Glen Speight - Novus Property Solutions

Novus Property Solutions’ Apprentice of the Year, Glen Speight, is encouraging other young people to join the ranks of the leading property maintenance specialist.

Glen, who is based at Novus’ East Midlands office, was recently named the company’s 2014 Apprentice of the Year and has wasted little time in becoming a vocal supporter of its rewarding apprentice programme.

Novus is offering full-time opportunities for 22 apprentices across a range of trades, including carpentry and joinery as well as decorating and maintenance. The company’s apprentices are guided by an apprentice manager who mentors them throughout their training and supports their college-based learning. On site they work alongside qualified tradespeople and benefit from their expertise.

Glen said: “The scheme is a fantastic chance for young people with the right attitude and potential to start to build a career. I’ve not looked back since I joined Novus and I would encourage anyone else considering an apprenticeship to take that first step and get their application in today.”

Novus has a long history of supporting apprentices with its current chairman, Stuart Seddon, and managing director, Neil Hand, both starting out at the company as apprentices.

Neil comments: “Supporting the next generation of tradespeople is integral to our business and it is something we have successfully done for over 75 years now. When I joined the company more than 30 years ago, I never thought I would become the joint MD, but it’s testament to the support network provided by the company that I was able to do so.”

Candidates must be available for selection trials in August 2015 and ready to enrol for their college course in September 2015. To find out more about how to apply please contact Jackie Budden on or 01782 598000
