We are proud to support National Apprenticeship Week.

The Group has an active Apprenticeship programme, from trades to office-based roles; our focus is to help Apprentices with in-house mentoring and exposure to relevant works to enable them to achieve their qualification and go onto progress their careers within the Group.

We don’t offer “short term” Apprenticeship jobs like some but do offer a permanent job at the outset, with genuine long-term career opportunities. We have a number of staff, from the Group’s current COO down, who started their careers with us as an Apprentice.

We’re always interested in hearing from people who’d like to embark upon an Apprenticeship so if you, or someone you know, are interested in joining our team or finding out more about what we can offer, please get in touch directly with Nerhan Yilmaz, Kinovo Group’s HR Recruitment Administrator on 0204 548 4533 or by Emailing: HR@Kinovoplc.com

Danny Kirwan, Spokemead Electrical Apprentice

“Working at Spokemead has been a great experience I’ve been able to gain my level of electrical knowledge exponentially as I’ve been able to work with many different great electricians with a large knowledge of all aspects. I’ve worked on many different projects so have been able to gain a vast understanding not just a restricted knowledge including maintenance, installations, fault finding and inspection and testing and more. I’ve been given a lot of support and guidance when working at Spokemead helping me further along with my course so can say I’ve truly enjoyed my time working here.”

Carter Pike, Spokemead Electrical Apprentice

“I’ve been at Spokemead for 4½ months, in this time I have been made to feel very welcome by everyone I’ve met. I’ve enjoyed my time working here and think that I’m learning and improving my skills at a good pace. I’m currently working on a communal lighting installation project; I like to do this work because I enjoy working as part of a team and I find that I learn a lot more from being hands on at work than if sat in a classroom. I find that it is a better learning experience and less repetitive than being with a maintenance electrician on orders. I get good support from the electricians and supervisors who are always on hand to give me advice and teach me how to do things in a way that is understandable. All in all I’m happy and think that I have made a very good career choice.”

Shauna Filbee, Purdy Gas Apprentice

“In the short time that I have been working at Purdy, I have learned a great deal from my Mentor, Terry. Every day I am learning something new and getting to practice what I have been taught. No two days are the same, so I enjoy going to work every day, for the first time! I am looking forward to continuing my journey with Purdy, gaining as much knowledge as possible and growing as an apprentice gas engineer.”

Luke Hargrave, Purdy Electrical Apprentice

“So far at Purdy’s I am enjoying the role. I enjoy working with Peter as he is a good teacher and the other engineers as it enables me to do different types of work. I feel like I have learned a lot and feel more confident doing things on my own. I feel like I am good with the practical side of things whereas my knowledge of Electrical work isn’t on the same level, however I know that’s the whole point of college and that it will improve when I start my course. Overall I am enjoying work at Purdy’s.”

Robyn Bates, Purdy Contract Administrator Apprentice

“I am enjoying working at Purdy Contracts as an Apprentice Administrator. My work colleagues are very encouraging, friendly and I feel settled and content. I am continuously expanding my knowledge and gaining confidence due to the support from my team.”

Tommy Rickwood, R Dunham Electrical Apprentice

“I am really enjoying it at R Dunham. I am improving and learning every day and becoming much more independent working.”
