I want to advertise an apprentice

You can advertise your apprentice position as you would do any job, however there are additional options available to you that will minimise the time and expense.

The Business Services team will post your position for free on the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) website. NAS runs a matching service to link up employers with potential apprentices. There are thousands of young people signed up to the website, which will help to fast-track your job to your key audience.

As you training provider we can promote the available apprentice position. We have access to a wide and diverse talent pool, ensuring you find the right person for your business;

Opening up the talent pool

We can help you open your vacancy to a wider audience by engaging with local schools and community groups. You could encourage work experience days to help you fill your vacancies with people who will become part of your team.
