Apprentice Recruitment Details

Why recruit Apprentices?

While apprenticeships have traditionally been seen as routes for hands-on, blue-collar roles, they have quickly grown to include white-collar roles. So much so, that apprenticeships are fast becoming a challenge to the traditional university route for young people and mid and senior hires are completing degree-level apprenticeships and above.

Modern apprenticeships are providing businesses with access to high-potential talent through a different route. As well as recruiting graduates, you now have the opportunity to recruit the same high-potential talent earlier in their academic journey, and bring them onboard to shape their professional development.

How does it work?

All of our recruitment processes are robust and multi-stage so you can find the candidates who are the right fit for your organisation. As you will be investing in your apprentices’ future, we also establish current capability and their future stretch to ensure you are recruiting those with the potential to be your future leaders.

Services we use in the process include:


• Attracting, searching & screening candidates

• Telephone or video interviews

• A virtual or face-to-face Discovery  assessment centre – including group tasks and a competency-based interview

• Virtual or face-to-face  assessment centre design – often including group/individual tasks and a competency-based interview

• Facilitation of the client  assessment centre either onsite, in our offices or virtually

• Making offers and rejections, and providing feedback

Get to the core of your candidates


Apprentices will have little business experience. See first-hand the raw potential they have to deliver excellence for your business. 


A great candidate doesn’t always mean they’ll be great for you. Find apprentices who are the right fit for your business.


High-potential talent could be successful in many different roles. Identify who has the raw potential for your specific role.

Identify behaviours

People are driven by behaviours, find future leaders with behaviours that are congruent with your business & the role.

Identify capability

Apprentices are fresh, inexperienced talent – establish their current ability to identify their potential to develop.

Identify stretch

You’re recruiting talent for the future; know that candidates have the stretch to grow & become your future leaders.
