Employers simply need to get in touch! We will work with you to shape a placement that will be worthwhile for both you and your trainee. We will support you to write a job description, interview and recruit the right young person for the job.
Acting as a single point of contact, we liaise with the Job Centre ensuring that young people applying for traineeships will go through the same recruitment process as they might if it were a paid job. This means that you can be sure of finding the right trainee for you.
Employers - if you would like to get involved, please email Keeley Williams or phone 020 7608 2132
