Freedom from HR and payroll responsibilities
You choose the best candidate for the job and we can employ them on your behalf, managing all the HR functions.
Simple invoicing system
You choose the salary and we invoice you for the hours worked (plus any time they spend in training). This makes managing staffing budgets and short-term recruitment needs much simpler.
Free advertising and publicity
We work with you to create a detailed and attractive job description which is then advertised for free on a variety of national and local recruitment websites to attract a wide range of suitable applicants. We will also promote your business through our own website and social networking sites by using your logo and any testimonials you might want to share about your experience as a host employer
A shortlist of exceptional candidates
We manage the application and shortlisting process. All our applicants are screened and assessed by our experienced team, making sure that you don’t waste time and money interviewing unsuitable candidates
Boost your Corporate Social Responsibility
As well as making good business sense, providing a young person with their first job opportunity is often cited by employers as one of the most rewarding things they have been involved with. Hiring an apprentice is a cost-effective way to employ your junior staff and is also a great way of meeting your CSR agenda
Our service is extremely flexible, focussed around making life easier for the employer. Because the employment status of each apprentice is central to us, similar businesses are able to share a single employee.
