The Apprentice Recruitment Process

Your hiring manager informs us of a vacancy

What results do you anticipate for the business and apprentice? Once you are happy with the vacancy, contact us so we can kick-start the apprenticeship recruitment process.

We advertise and source best candidates

The vacancy will be advertised on the Lifetime site as well as on 3rd party jobs board such as Indeed and Total Jobs. We will screen applicants to ensure the best quality of candidate for the role.

Candidates meet the hiring manager and interviews held

Once shortlisting has taken place interviews can be used to understand more about the skills and experience of the candidate, their career aspirations and to ascertain if they’re a good fit for your team.

Your new apprentice is hired...

Why not supply your apprentice with an information pack before they start? Provide them with information about their team mates, their daily duties, the wider business and/or industry, their work setting, key policies and procedures, dress code, some simple do’s and don’ts, basically anything that will help answer any basic questions upfront and give them the confidence to get started. Why not throw in a discount voucher for a high-street store to help them with their workwear or a local coffee shop voucher card. You could even set them a ‘top secret’ project; giving them an opportunity to review the wider business and make some suggestions on improvements. 

...then signed on to their programme
