As a company, we’re committed to the training and support that our employees receive; people-first management underpins everything we do. We recognise just how important our employees are and remain committed to maintaining a happy and engaged team by being a great place to work.
I fell into Human Resources 20 years ago, working as a part time HR Administrator. I enjoyed it so much that I went on to complete my CIPD, gaining a Master’s degree at the same time. I have worked at a senior level in Retail, Finance, Oil & Gas and Manufacturing.
I joined Novoferm in 2018 and at that time they did not have a HR department. We now have a payroll & HR department and continue to grow the department moving from transactional to a strategic partner in the business.
Our business is going through a period of change and it is a very exciting time for us all. New hires joining our business join at a very exciting time. There are lots of opportunities to grow with the business and be part of our journey moving forward .
In 2018, I graduated from Birmingham City University with a 2:1 in Business & Human Resource Management. Since then, I have gained an array of experience across HR & recruitment within both the public & private sector.
I enjoy working within the HR team for The Novoferm Group, as every day is different. It’s a social role, where I meet and deal with different people on a daily basis. The Senior Management Team continuously push me out of my comfort zone, which has resulted in me gaining the skills and knowledge required for me to progress within my role.
Within the last year, The Novoferm Group has transformed it’s approach to its employees; who are our biggest asset. We invest in our staff, offer excellent benefits, and celebrate each other’s achievements. Our organisational values are at the forefront of all business decisions, which is evident in our company culture.
I started off with Novoferm in 2020 as a Business Apprentice supporting Operations. After a year of working in that department, I then started working in Human Resources and began helping with general admin. In June 2021 I completed my Business Admin Apprenticeship with a Distinction at 99%. Once I qualified I continued to work in HR, I have now had 1 years’ experience in HR & am currently studying for my CIPD Level 3.
I have had such a good experience over the past 2 years working for Novoferm. There is so much opportunity here and the business is continuously growing & progressing each day.
Over the past year, there has been so much change as a whole; we have new benefits, new values & an excellent company culture.
We like to think of ourselves as one big family here at BGS. Our employees are our most valuable asset, and we’re keen to help each one progress; investing time and effort into their training and development.
This is why we conducted the Fitter’s Tour in 2021 which focused on health and safety, and taught our engineers best working practises and how to identify and mitigate risk as part of our ‘Near Miss Initiative’. The idea behind this initiative being that more near misses will equal fewer accidents. Attendees also received a goodie bag from BGS’ top supplier – Alpha Deuren.
The Fitter’s Tour is the epitome of what makes BGS such a great place to work. The senior management team are committed to your development, as demonstrated by the 6 months they spent travelling the length and breadth of the UK, completing the tour. Our employees have ample opportunities to advance their careers and climb high in the ranks through all the training and conferences provided.
The 2021 Fitter’s Tour was a huge success, and so, we’ve already got the follow-up tour scheduled for the end of Q2 2022 (June). We have revamped the 2022 tour to ensure that the content stays fresh, relevant and that attendees get the full benefit to help with advancing their careers. The tour is just one of the many excellent training opportunities we provide to help you kickstart or progress in your career.
