As part of our comprehensive levy and apprenticeship service, our staff will provide an apprenticeship recruitment service at no cost to yourself, we will work with your CPD and internal training assessment methods to support existing staff with work ready qualifications. We will also provide a full recruitment service for all apprentices, primarily aimed at the 16-24 age groups. This is delivered by a team of Engagement specialists who manage the placement of apprentices. All roles will be advertised using the gov.uk apprenticeship website and indeed.

We will continue to develop our capability to act as a one-stop recruitment point to field all applicants; carrying out CV reviews, application analysis, initial assessments and first stage interviews. Recruitment staff will match successful applicants with your vacancy providing a short list of suitable applicants for you to consider. We will arrange interviews; liasing between you the employer, and the short listed apprentice applicants, to make certain that your decision to offer the apprenticeship opportunity is as simple and effective as possible.
