Apprentices for Business is an independent, specialist recruitment and employment agency covering Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire, West Sussex and the home counties. We are a not-for-profit organisation and we provide a simple and cost-effective apprentice recruitment service for businesses looking to appoint high-calibre apprentices, graduates, interns and junior staff.
What do we offer?
Our mission is to both increase the number of job opportunities available to young people and support the economic growth of business. The initiative has been created through a partnership between the London Apprenticeship Company and some of the largest FE Colleges and training providers in Hampshire and the South East. We are recognised and endorsed by the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS), Solent Local Enterprise Partnership and the Enterprise M3 LEP.
We believe we offer the very best service to all our stakeholders: employers, young people and our network of training providers and colleges. This means the best candidates for good, sustainable jobs with good rates of pay. Read more about our ‘Gold Service Standards’.

Apprenticeship Training Agencies
Apprentices for Business is an approved Apprenticeship Training Agency (ATA) and is one of the original members of the Confederation of Apprenticeship Training Agencies (CoATA). Our apprentice recruitment services provide businesses with a completely different approach to the hiring of junior of staff. We can act as the legal employer; we then place our apprentices and graduates with a suitable ‘host’ company. Similar to an employment agency, we manage all of the HR, payroll and employment functions, relieving the host employer of the administrative burden involved in taking on a new member of staff.
