You have decided to recruit an Apprentice? We can create a job specification, advertise, short-list, assist with interviews of apprentices, arrange work trials and start dates saving you time and money. Have a look at our Apprenticeship recruitment offer to see how we can assist you.
You prefer to undertake the recruitment yourself but need help writing the job description or organising the interview? Have a look at the following templates and guidelines:
A good job decription performs a number of important functions. It describes the skills and competencies that are needed to perform the role; it defines where the job fits within the overall company organisation; it is used as the basis for the employability contract; and it is a valuable performance management tool. This template outlines how to write a job description that is clear, concise and accurately defines the role of the apprentice.
When it comes to recruiting an apprentice, the whole process can seem quite similar to recruiting any other member of staff. But careful consideration needs to be taken when it comes to interviewing and managing your own expectations, and those of the various candidates you may see. Our template for interviewing apprentices is here to help.
“From the moment we engaged with the Cornwall Apprenticeship Agency, the path forward became clearer. We better understood what apprentices would be looking for from us and how we could reach out to the right types of candidates. There is also the added benefit of heaps of support along the way, but ultimately, we always had control”. Carlos Howard, General Manager at ISO Spaces.
