Apprenticeships are a fantastic way for employers to develop their future workforce and solve the growing skills shortages. We help large employers create and deliver high-quality apprentice recruitment campaigns at speed and scale.
Hiring apprentices is complex
Recruiting apprentices can be highly challenging. Assessing school leavers or candidates with no previous experience requires a different approach to traditional recruitment.
Often with little or no prior experience working in the role, how do you identify those candidates with the potential to flourish? Add the need to achieve diversity targets (such as gender or ethnic background), improve candidate perceptions of the role and your organisation, and you face a tough challenge.
Today, school and college leavers have more apprenticeships, entry-level roles, and gig work to choose from than ever. So, you need a seamless recruitment process that can attract and engage sufficient numbers of candidates. Equally, you need to be able to efficiently assess candidates' potential to perform well in the role and align with your corporate values.
Satisfying all these conflicting requirements is vital for a successful apprentice recruitment campaign. Make the process too simple, and you'll be overwhelmed with unsuitable candidates. Too complex, and you'll deter many good candidates and find it harder to fill your quotas.
