The company hosted its National Apprentice of the Year awards at the House of Commons to honour the 300 apprentices it employs.

Robert said: ‘Throughout my time at Veolia in Portsmouth, I have worked alongside the maintenance technicians learning from them and transferring the knowledge gained to allow me to work under minimum supervision.

‘I’ve assisted with a complete refurbishment of the APCR Silo hydraulics, installed new super heater slide valves and rebuilt our waste grabber. It’s been great.’
