Attraction, Recruitment and Selection

To start a recruitment service with us, you will need to supply us with a Job Description, and a PO (Purchase Order) for the Premium service.

As part of the on-boarding process you will work with us to assess your apprentices’ existing knowledge and agree a training plan to align with the required duties of the selected Apprenticeship Standard.

If you haven’t already, your company will need to create an employer account on the apprenticeship service to access funding.

Attraction, Recruitment and Selection

Considering starting an apprentice in your business?

Since May 2015, Apprenticeships can now be applied to employees of any age. An Apprenticeship therefore enables career-starters, plus up-skillers and re-skillers to enrol and close the skills gap.

Apprenticeships are suitable for people at any level so you can hire someone new or upskill an existing employer.

We provide a comprehensive consultation with one of our regional business development managers who will discuss your role requirements and will help you find the most appropriate apprenticeship Standard.

Recruit your apprentice

If you’re not upskilling an existing member of your team, you’ll need to advertise your apprenticeship opportunity.

The Attraction, Recruitment and Selection process is crucial to the success of any apprenticeship programme, so does require an investment in both time and effort to ensure you get the best possible recruitment, retention and performance outcomes over the long term.

We would recommend a multi-stage process that focuses on enabling candidates to demonstrate their experience and behaviour traits.  We also recommend that the process is open and transparent, promotes equality and diversity and complies with all current employment law and best practice. This will initially include an attraction campaign that will identify suitable potential candidates for your apprenticeship vacancy.

You can fully manage your own advertising and interview process, or you can engage us to help with either our free or premium service.
