Vocational Education & Training providers have the Apprenticeships but where are the young people?

New Futures Recruitment has been offering specialist recruitment services to the Vocational Education & Training Sector since 2008. Charlene Hoskins, the Operations Manager, explains how they developed their unique apprenticeship Advertising model to attract the best Apprenticeship candidates for clients.

“In our role as a specialist a recruitment consultancy for Vocational Education & Training providers, we work closely with National, Regional and Local Training Providers as well as Further Education Colleges.

“We became aware that a problem common to the majority of Apprenticeship Providers that we work with is attracting candidates in sufficient numbers and of sufficient quality to meet the demands of employers that might have Apprenticeship vacancies.

“Obviously all Apprenticeship Vacancies are posted on the AV website but if that does not generate the appropriate response what next? Then it came to us, why don’t we apply our expertise and resources to help our clients find the perfect apprentice candidates.

“We developed a fixed price advertising product that allows providers to advertise their vacancy across all of the major generic, sector and geographically specific internet job boards, as well as social media outlets. Because of the economies of scale that we enjoy in purchasing such advertising, we can offer this at a fraction of the price that it would cost if done directly.

“Adverts run for four weeks and all applicants are passed directly to our clients, subject to any initial screening requirements requested. Once they have filled their vacancy, other suitable candidates can be used to fill other Apprenticeship Vacancies or in other programmes at no extra charge.”

Exclusive to GTA England members, the service is available for a fixed charge from £150 + VAT with a full refund guaranteed in the unlikely event that no candidates apply.
