Apprentice recruitment

An apprentice is a real employee doing a real job in your organisation.

Apprentice pay rates start from just £3.40 per hour with a minimum of 30 hours per week. The initial contract for an apprentice is a minimum of one year.

Apprentices tend to bring fresh ideas, enthusiasm and passion to your business, as well as a commitment to grow and progress within their role.

Our Apprentice Recruitment service is free to use and you may also be eligible for a government grant.

"The calibre of the apprentices is consistently high and we have found the whole process a complete success."

How does apprentice recruitment work?

An apprentice has the same rights as all your other employees and is subject to the same work regulations. However, one major difference is that apprentice pay rates start from just £3.40 per hour with a minimum of 30 hours per week.

The initial contract for an apprentice is a minimum of one year. At Grey Seal, we adopt the same strategy to recruiting an apprentice as we do to recruiting a senior manager. We interview all candidates and only send you relevant CVs that match your requirements.

We will encourage you to give a potential apprentice a trial of two to three days in your workplace before making them a formal offer. This will give you the valuable opportunity to see the apprentice in action and help you make the decision about whether to hire them or not. *If you feel our apprentice recruitment service is a good fit for your business, call us on 01773 829121 to discuss.
