Northside Truck & Van’s Matt Drury will be supporting The Boulevard Academy school in Hull with year 11 students taking part in mock interviews as they look ahead to the future. 

Drury, who is Northside’s Group Training & Apprentice Coordinator, will be joining a panel of interviewers as he supports students in their pursuit of improving their interview technique.

Based in Hull, The Boulevard Academy, will run mock interview sessions with students in order to home in on their temperament, and their ability to impress during any future job interviews they might receive.

Matt was invited by Fiona Marshall, Lead Teacher of Music & Careers at the school, following discussions with Neil Spencer, the school’s careers governor and also a member of the parts department at our Hull depot. 

All interviews will take place via video links online such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom, keeping in line with the latest government guidance. 

Matt said: “It’s really exciting to be a part of something like this, especially for myself in the role I have at Northside. At the moment it’s important to focus on kids who are about to leave school for higher education, it’s going to be a great experience for them and hopefully we can give them the best advice, because as adults we all know how important the next few years are. 

“It will also be exciting to meet potential apprentices who are looking to join our award-winning programme, we have been informed that a few of the students are keen mechanics so it will be good to get to know them.

“During these difficult and strange times I’m very excited to meet them all and help them along the way. It’s important to teach them the best skills in order to make the best impression, and who knows, we might find a heap of new, young and exciting employees.”

COVID-19 update

As a business all seven of our depots will remain open so we can continue to provide our usual services. The only change we will make is to close retail showrooms and remove displays until government advice differs. Vehicles can still be purchased, only showroom areas will close, and we have a large number of vans and trucks in stock. Currently we are working hard to upload them online but, in the meantime, please call us if you don’t find what you require.
