“Apprenticeships are vital for the long-term future of Nexus. We are committed to developing early career paths, providing solid succession planning for critical roles. Apprenticeships are an ideal route both for us and the apprentice.

“They learn bespoke skills and competencies and we gain skilled and engaged employees who see real career development. And Nexus apprentices have a high chance of getting a job at the end, with nine out of ten previous apprentices going on to have a long term career in our organisation.”
