Expanding your workforce with an apprentice in the current climate will not only help young people, but also bring back some nurturing into your workforce. We all love to impart our knowledge and local firm specialist contractors, Nexus Electrics are celebrating the success they are seeing from their apprentice Nathan.

Learning on the job and earning are two obvious benefits for young people right now, but 17-year-old Nathan Carpenter has also felt the benefits of personal development and confidence building. The business has also felt growth with new ideas and a new perspective of the inner workings of the company.
