Norma UK is the country’s leading manufacturer and distributor of profile clamps, hose clamps, pipe connections, retaining products, quick connectors, fluid systems and plastic connectors. They host 3 Apprentices employed by the London Apprenticeship Company.

In this video, Krystel Vincent, HR Administration Apprentice, speaks about why she thought an apprenticeship was the best option for her, to learn and work at the same time while earning a widely recognised qualification as well as discussing her job role and what she does day-to-day.

Tim Bearpark, Financial Administration Apprentice, discusses why he decided to choose an apprenticeship, talking about looking into going to university but realising that he would get much more out of doing an apprenticeship and how it would be a good stepping stone towards a fruitful career.

Graham Revill, Procurement Administration Apprentice, runs us through his experience of applying for an apprenticeship, going to an interview and getting the job.

Celina Sykes, HR Business Partner, speaks about why Norma UK decided to pay their apprentices a higher wage than the minimum apprenticeship wage, wanting a long term future with their apprentices and to help them build a career. She also talks about apprenticeships supporting growth within a company and how having young people work for them has lifted the mood.

Norma UK hadn’t employed apprentices before so they asked the London Apprenticeship Company to help them recruit, employ and manage the training of their apprentices for them. The scheme has been a great success – see more case studies here.
