Recruiting an Apprentice

We recognise that there isn’t an ‘off-the-shelf’ method when it comes to apprentice recruitment, especially in such a competitive market space.

That’s why our complete recruitment marketing solution will give you the edge when it comes to finding, attracting and hiring the best talent available. Our solution is bespoke to your recruitment objectives and company culture. Whether you want to recruit apprentices internally or externally, we’ll support you to choose the right communication channels, apprentice on-boarding process and online media promotion.

Unlike conventional methods that primarily target school and college leavers, we’ve partnered with a leading sector job board to broaden accessibility to candidates genuinely motivated to pursue a career in hospitality.

Our approach stands out for its diversity whilst remaining sector focused:

Flexible Management:

  • Streamline reporting and candidate selection.
  • Targeted campaigns for up to six weeks to capture monthly job seekers.

  • Single point of contact through our recruitment support team. They’ll guide you through the recruitment process from start-to-finish, saving you time and will work alongside your Relationship Manager to ensure your campaign meets its objectives.
