UNDERSTANDING YOUR NEEDS

Please call 01653 697698, or email the Business Support Team on info@derwenttraining.co.uk to inform us of your recruitment requirements. We can then set up a meeting to discuss this in more detail, or just add your opportunity onto our recruitment list. If we are provided with a job description then we can advertise your opportunities on the vacancies page on our website, the National Find an Apprenticeship Website, on social media and in the local schools and colleges. 

 

APPLICANT SCREENING

All applicants will apply via our website and submit a CV. They will then complete an English and Maths Initial Assessment. This will be followed by an interview with a member of our Business Support Team. Both of these steps will assess the applicants suitability to start an Apprenticeship. This rigorous process means that you only see the best quality candidates in our “how to hire an apprentice” process. 

Once applicants have successfully passed our recruitment process the applicants who match your requirements will be shortlisted for your opportunity. We will then provide you with all of the relevant information so that you can select applicants to invite for a formal interview at your premises. 

 

INTERVIEWS AND EMPLOYMENT

Once you have interviewed applicants and selected who you would like to recruit you will need to send them an employment offer and inform us once they have accepted. We will then meet with you, and your new apprentice, to discuss the requirements and complete all the relevant paper work.
