Job Introduction

NNL is not like any other business, and our Apprenticeships are like no other.

To welcome you into the business, all our NNL apprentices join a 3-day induction programme. This will give you an understanding of the business, the programme you will follow and what we’ll expect from you during your apprenticeship. Following your induction, you’ll attend training sessions focusing on personal development at three monthly intervals. These cover a range of skills from time management to team working.
