Lisa is one of the current apprentices training with HMS. Lisa, Apprentice Plumber adds,

“I’m loving the apprenticeship so far, Torus Foundation and HMS have been very supportive to get me here. From the Foundation helping me to break down the barriers to even get me started, support to prepare and apply for the role, to HMS taking me on and assigning me with a fantastic buddy who I’m able to work closely with and learn from.

“I have goals and aspirations to build my skills and career and I’m proud of my journey taken to get to where I am now. As well as being able to show my children what can be achieved, I’d like to be able to empower other women to take on such roles.”

There are currently over 30 people studying for an apprenticeship qualification while working within the Torus group.
