OUR TEAM / JAKE ALLISTER
As part of my school’s two-week work experience programme, I initially joined NOVO in 2016. I was offered a summer job to continue my work within the CAD department, and have been a full-time member of the team ever since.
I have been studying Building Services Engineering at college alongside my work with NOVO, allowing me to develop my understanding of the industry and further improve my 2D and 3D skills. Being knowledgeable in Building Services allows me to understand what I’m drawing better, improving rate at which I work.
I have learned a great deal from my colleagues and mentors within the CAD department who are always happy to help with my work, to ensure consistent delivery and quality. In 2018 I was shortlisted for a CIBSE Yorkshire Award ‘Apprentice of the Year’ and was later promoted from ‘Apprentice’ to ‘Technician’ as a result of my progression and commitment to my work.
I am now the coordinator of the CAD department and it is my responsibility to ensure the work produced by my team is consistent with our high quality standards. I consider myself easy going and I always aim to work efficiently and proactively.
