Every year, all of the teams in the US National Football League take part in the college draft. This is where the major teams draft in college leavers and add them to their squad. It is an incredibly successful systems and is surrounded by huge interest from anyone interested in American Football.
Recruiting an apprentice is a bit like the college draft. Potential apprentices will be sitting their GCSEs and A Levels shortly and thereafter will be looking for employment. Those that do not want to pursue an apprenticeship will either stay at school or college or head off to university. Like the college draft, employers thinking about employing an apprentice will need to act swiftly to find their ideal candidates. Once the exams are over there is only a small window of opportunity to “draft” in your apprentice.
Employing an Apprentice
Once the summer is over, the pool of talent diminishes significantly as anyone under 18 has to be in either full-time education, be on an apprenticeship or be working for 20 hours or more per week while in part-time education or training. See Government Website
This means that by the end of September the opportunity to employ a school leaver reduces. If you are an employer in Yorkshire and are thinking about hiring an apprentice then speak to us now. This is the perfect time to advertise your vacancy and work with us on the recruitment process.
We work closely with our employers to find the right candidates. Rather than just give you a list of applicants we interview all prospective candidates and only submit the most appropriate apprenticeship seekers. We know employers are busy and don’t want to read through every CV that we receive so we make the process easy for you.
As an employer you will need to interview the short listed candidates that we have agreed with you. There is no obligations to make an offer if the candidates are not right, we simply keep looking until we find the right person.
