Employers

A SIMPLE, STRAIGHTFORWARD WAY TO GROW YOUR TEAM

Unlike many providers we take time to get to know the employers we work with and equally get to know the apprentices we place with them.

Why take on an apprentice?

Having an apprentice is a cost effective way of filling a skills gap whilst giving a young person a life changing opportunity. Professional Apprenticeships operates a proactive recruitment strategy ensuring the right apprentice is placed in the right business.

We understand your business is important to you and that your time is precious therefore Professional Apprenticeships will guarantee to make your experience as efficient and straight forward as possible.

How will we help you?

A member of the Recruitment team will discuss a suitable job description with you that meets your business needs, we will advertise this free of charge, shortlist (including pre-assessment) through potential candidates and arrange interviews where you can meet the candidates. If they are not what you are looking for you are under no obligation to take them and our expertise ensures that unsuitable candidates are a rarity for employers.

We like to add additional value to taking on an apprentice from Professional Apprenticeships. Why not come to one of our free networking events exclusive to businesses who employ our apprentices.
