Apprenticeships in Recruitment

Finding the right talent for your business is never easy. Our industry is bigger than ever, but the challenge is keeping up by attracting and retaining the best recruitment talent.

The government’s changes to the way apprenticeships are funded and the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy will result in a fundamental change to the talent strategy of your business. You can now recruit, train and grow the best recruitment talent through a funded apprenticeship programme. Find out more about the Levy here.
