Looking for apprentices and trainees for your business?
Start with a good job description
Recruiting the right candidate means being very clear of what you expect from your future apprentice.
Write a detailed description on what the job entails, identify the skills required to do the job and determine whether the employee needs to be full-time or part-time. If you require someone on a part-time basis, think about whether a school-based apprentice or trainee will meet your needs.
You can also use our online tools to build the position description.

Vet your candidates during the interview
