Recruiting an Apprentice
We know that recruiting the right apprentice for your company and ensuring that they have the relevant skills and knowledge to do the job you require will be of paramount importance to you.
If your dealership is requiring an apprentice, place a call to our Apprenticeship Programme Recruitment Team who will fully explain the process of recruiting an apprentice to enhance your business.
At the recruitment stage the Recruitment Team will advertise your vacancy on government sites, social media and attend careers events to source potential applicants. Potential candidates will complete an application form process which involves an online assessment. The Recruitment Team will then conduct initial telephone interviews to discuss the vacancy in further detail and find out more about the applicant.
The Recruitment Team will then supply your company with a short list of applicants that we feel fit your business in preparation for your own internal interview process to choose the right apprentice.
Alternatively if you have an employee that you would like to enrol onto an apprenticeship, we can talk you through this process.
