OPUS TAKES ON 4 NEW APPRENTICES
We are Delighted to welcome our 4 new apprentices, 2 Electrical 1 Heating Engineer and 1 Plumbing to OPUS.

Opus Group has recruited four new apprentices in its Opus Building Services division and another in its Opus Medigas division.

Opus Building Services Managing Director Gavin Richardson said the move was to future-proof against a shortage of qualified specialists.

“The apprentices went through a rigorous and thorough selection process and I’m delighted to welcome them on board. A labour shortage of qualified workers in the building sector is being widely forecast, so it seemed prudent to take on these guys now on four-year, fully-indentured apprenticeship programmes,” explained Gavin.

The four Opus Building Services apprentices attend colleges in North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Hartlepool and Newcastle.

“Three of the lads have come straight from school, but one we’ve taken on from a company that has gone into administration. He’ll be finishing off his plumbing apprenticeship with us, taking him through to final certification,” added Gavin.
