Could your workforce do with an injection of energy, talent and passion?

As a major Welsh-Government contract holder for Jobs Growth Wales and Apprenticeships, we are able to provide organisations with an exemplary recruitment service at no cost whatsoever.  Whether you are looking to recruit a young trainee and provide them with support and mentoring or you need someone with a bit more life experience, we can support you to find the right recruit for your organisation.

Apprenticeships

Are you looking to recruit the future leaders of your business?

Apprenticeships are proven to be one of the most effective ways to recruit, train and develop highly skilled employees within your company.  In fact, 88% of employers believe that Apprenticeships lead to a more motivated and satisfied workforce.  You can recruit an Apprentice of ANY AGE and they can start their training at Level 2, 3 or 4, depending on the type of role you’re looking to fill.

What’s involved?

  • We support you to advertise a quality job opportunity that can be filled by an individual of ANY age
  • We can help you to sift and interview candidates as required (at no cost)
  • The individual will enrol onto a high quality, job-specific, vocational training programme (Apprenticeship) with us from the moment you take them on, allowing them to earn while they earn
  • The level of the Apprenticeship depends on your needs- you could recruit a Level 2 Admin Apprentice or a Trainee Manager to go through a Level 4 management development programme
  • The position must be for at least 12 months
  • The individual must be paid at least the National Apprenticeship Minimum Wage for that 12-month period
  • We can support you to progress the individual onto a higher level qualification once they complete their 12 month Apprenticeship

 ‘I have accessed the Jobs Growth Wales programme via Educ8 every year for the last 4 years.  Before that I used a different provider and I must say the difference between the two was significant.  The service I receive from Educ8 is tremendous.  I wouldn’t use anyone else.’  Colin Voisey, CEO @ Cleartech Live Ltd.
