How does it work?

Your vacancy will be advertised on the most relevant sourcing channels including Find an Apprenticeship, GetMyFirstJob, Not Going to Uni, CareerMap and the Kaplan website. We also proactively search for high calibre candidates using the GetMyFirstJob database and our very own database, containing over 1,000 active candidates.

How are candidates shortlisted?

Candidates are initially shortlisted against the qualifying criteria. They are scheduled for a telephone or face-to-face screening interview, where our Recruitment Team goes through a number of questions to establish the candidates’ motivation. We aim to understand their personalities, strengths and weaknesses, and what they are looking for in their next, and often first, career step. We assess whether an Apprenticeship is the right route for the applicants and ensure they have considered travel options, and go through any other candidate-specific circumstances to ensure they are successful during their Apprenticeship. We’ll then send you the screened shortlist for your review.

What makes a good candidate?

A candidate that shows intelligence and passion to succeed, but most importantly, a willingness to learn and integrate themselves in a business culture.
