Nurseries make the most of FREE recruitment service
“The quality of the training with the advice and support that Lifetime Training offers is second to none and the childcare related courses bring about great results; my team are enthusiastic and passionate about what they do and focus on delivering their best for parents and children every day. I couldn’t ask for more!" Theresa Ogden, Area Manager, Tiggers Nurseries
Over the last 12 months, Lifetime Training has placed more than 500 young people into Apprenticeship employment through its unique Apprentice Recruitment service. Nurseries in particular are finding the free recruitment service of huge value to their business, minimising the time they spend on sourcing and interviewing new team members.
It has been well documented that the average recruitment cost of filling a vacancy per employee is £4,000, which increases to £6,125 when organisations also calculate the associated labour turnover costs (CIPD Recruitment, Retention and Turnover survey report 2009). It is therefore one of the most important factors that employers consider when considering bringing on an apprentice.
Alison Simpson, Business Manager Care, said: “This service is available to all employers and can significantly reduce the time and cost to recruit, as well as improve the quality of candidates attracted and retained. The solution includes a dedicated account manager, vacancy advertising, pre-screening/short-listing, skills matching, interview support and marketing support to help raise awareness of available vacancies.”
Making the most of ongoing contracts with national job and course listing websites as well as the National Apprenticeship Service and Job Centre Plus, Lifetime is able to deliver the best candidates for the job.
