Apprenticeships at Norse

At Norse apprenticeships are seen as a vital part of the company’s future, complementing training and development at all staffing levels to maintain a skilled workforce that can deliver Norse’s diverse range of services.

Below is a link to our case study compiled together with the National Apprenticeship Service. Click here to download.

Since 2011 Norse Commercial Services and its subsidiaries has recruited 140 apprentices and has committed to a further 40 in 2015.

Medway Norse is now providing training and paid work experience for eight young adults.

There are three in administrative roles; two in the grounds division, one in horticulture and the other as a fitter on the mechanical side; and one each in electrical, plumbing and catering disciplines.

The work environment has helped the apprentices, with 23 year old Business Administration apprentice Matthew Taylor explaining; Ive not only been learning new skills but also more about myself from the others in the office. Its helped me pick up skills that will be of use with potential future jobs, and given me experiences that could help me in life in general, adds Misha Taylor, 21, another Business Administration apprentice. For Hassan Cox, 17, a Catering Apprentice, the variety is giving him the opportunity to find out what he might ultimately choose to do; Its obviously a step on the ladder to getting a career, and a chance to see which part of catering Id really like to work in, he says.

Each year our apprentices have the opportunity to compete for the following awards:

  • Apprentice Volunteering Team of the Year
  • Apprentice of the Year
  • Rising Star
  • Apprentice Progression Award
  • Excellence Award

Tricia Fuller - With the rate of expansion within the company these young people, together with those on our graduate programme, will form the next generation of Norse staff. I have no doubt many will become business leaders of the future, and we are immensely proud of the success of our career development programmes.
