Recruitment

Specialist Apprentice Recruitment

We provide apprentice recruitment services in partnership with our sister organisation the London Apprenticeship Company (LAC). We have successfully recruited apprentices for over 500 businesses.

The whole process starts by us making sure that we understand your business organisation and what you want your apprenticeship scheme to achieve. Our L&D Advisory service is the place to begin. Once we’ve understood what you are looking for we start to piece together a recruitment plan: vacancy marketing; candidate attraction; managing the applications process; skills screening; shortlisting and providing you with references on each candidate.

The London Apprenticeship Company jobs boards are some of the best used in London and attract around 250 applicants per week.

We can source, skills match and recruit apprentices to fill your existing or future job vacancies. We've attracted more than 6,000 candidates.

Attracting the Best

Good apprenticeships are sought after. People know that if they get an apprenticeship in the right company they’ll have a great career in front of them. And the demand from young people in particular is growing. So our team will advise you on how you can structure your job vacancy, the salary and the progression opportunities on completion to make sure you attract the candidates you want.

Marketing your Apprenticeships

We can recruit any number of apprentices. We’ve worked with employers who wanted to recruit groups of 30-40 apprentices four times a year and others who look for a single group of 10. We work with you to make sure that we recruit to your specifications and this can include criteria such as “just find the best” and “help us improve the diversity of our workforce”.

Whatever the criteria, the London Apprenticeship Company jobs board will attract the sorts of people you are looking for.

Skills Screening

We want you to get the staff you need and we make sure that they are trained in the ways you want them to be. We meet and screen candidates that match your selection criteria and, crucially, we involve the training provider in this process to make sure that all of your shortlisted candidates are eligible and have the basic levels of English, Maths and IT knowledge that they need to succeed.

Contact Tilly’s team if you would like to find out more or to meet some of our candidate apprentices.
