Keep your business ahead of the rest by recruiting the right people. Inject fresh talent into your workforce by taking on an apprentice, hiring pre-screened candidates to fill permanent, part-time or seasonal roles or offering a work placement. With no recruitment fees to pay, our dedicated Account Manager will work you to provide you with the right candidates for your requirements. 


An Apprenticeship is a combination of employment and work-based qualification. Apprentices are employed by you, paid a small wage and spend most of their time in your workplace gaining job specific skills, plus attend college (usually one day per week) to study their qualification. If you are looking to hire new staff or train your existing employees, apprenticeships are a great way to gain fresh talent and keep staff costs lower. As the largest college provider of apprenticeships in west London we work across 20 different industries and help you to make the most out of the Apprenticeship Scheme. We will screen candidates and assist you with the recruitment of new apprentices or enable your existing employees to become apprentices.
