Recruiting new staff can be a timely and costly process for your company, completing the job spec, deciding on the right skills, shortlisting candidates etc. So, it’s no wonder that the thought of hiring a potentially untrained individual can be even more daunting, yet many local employers often do this through local apprenticeship schemes and have great success!

To help you get started we will be holding a virtual showcase with local apprenticeship training providers at the beginning of March.
