Work Placement Team

Work Placement Officers are employer focused and build relationships with local organisations to promote the benefits of supporting a young person on a work placement and support employers through the work placement journey.

Our Work Placement Team works directly with employers to place students into short work experience programmes for the benefit of both our students and employers. For more about this time and what it does, take a look at our work placement page.

Recruitment team

Our team of recruitment officers work to find the best candidates for your vacancies. We work to develop candidates to prepare them for interview and we manage the recruitment process, on your behalf, from start to finish. If you are currently an employer who is interested in taking on another apprentice, this is the team to talk to.
