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 funding with the Apprenticeship Levy on the government's website.
For further information and advice you can contact also contact your local preferred apprenticeship provider to discuss the apprenticeships with the REC as an awarding body, or contact the National Apprenticeship Service for further advice
The usual way recruitment businesses proceed, is for you (as the prospective employer) to make direct contact with one of our registered providers, and talk to them about what you want. This may mean you ask them to find you an apprentice, or it may mean you have someone in mind already.
Whatever circumstances you have, the provider will help you work through funding options, selection and work planning – then they manage the whole programme on your behalf. Any training provider can deliver our apprenticeships, but they have to be approved to do so by the REC. If you would like help locating the right training provider for your business contact us on 0207 009 2100 and we can support you through this decision.
Our approved providers supply across the UK, including Northern Ireland. You can find a list of all our providers at the bottom of this page.
