Apprenticeships offer young people a great route into the world of work.  As an apprentice recruitment consultant at The Best Connection, you will combine hands-on work with focused training that leads to a nationally recognised qualification.

If you’re looking for an alternative to more traditional learning routes, such as college or University, then an apprenticeship can give you the opportunity to earn whilst gaining important skills and work experience.

Apprenticeships are an alternative to college. The level 3 apprenticeships offered at The Best Connection are equivalent to A Levels. During an apprenticeship, you will combine on-the-job training in your branch location with more traditional learning activities including training sessions, eLearning and workshops. You will also have a dedicated learning and development consultant to help you throughout your journey, allowing you to grow professionally.

The Best Connection is an approved and experienced apprenticeship provider. We understand the value an apprenticeship brings in preparing you for your role at The Best Connection and in developing your industry knowledge.

As an Apprentice, you will work full-time in a branch on a permanent contract of employment with a guaranteed job at the end of your training.  Around 20% of your time will be spent undertaking training activities including shadowing more experienced staff, training sessions, workshops, self-study, projects, research activities, one to one coaching and eLearning.

Unlike many traditional job roles and schemes, prior experience or qualifications are not required as you will gain these throughout your apprenticeship journey. If you did not achieve certification in Mathematics or English at school, we can help you get up to speed with functional skills in both subjects at level 2 which is equivalent to a grade C.

Anyone can embark on an apprenticeship. Whether you are looking for a career change or a promising career after school or college, then an apprenticeship could be right for you. Apprenticeships are a great route for you to kickstart your career. Remember, it is a job and you will need to apply and then go through an interview process.
