Apprenticeships – Time is running out

With the A level examinations now over, we are in the peak period for apprenticeship recruitment. If you are an employer you need to advertise your vacancy now if you want to find a great apprentice, and likewise if you are a college leaver you need to start applying now as the best opportunities will go fast.

Our Future Talent service matches applicants to vacancies. We have already placed over 50 young people with employers who will begin their apprenticeship in July, August or September. Employers already on board have had the first pick of some of the best young talent in the Manchester area.

Our Future Talent service recruits for three Apprenticeship programmes: Accountancy; Business Administration; and Property Management.

Apprenticeship Programmes

Accountancy apprenticeship explained

The Assistant Accountant Apprenticeship is a 15-18-month programme, incorporating the AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma. It is an ideal programme to get a real working knowledge of accounting fundamentals, and naturally progresses onto Level 4. It is suitable for assistant accounting, audit, payroll, credit control, finance officer positions and more.

After successful delivery of the new standard, we won the AAT Apprenticeship Training Provider of The Year for 2019!

Business Administration apprenticeship explained

The Business Administrator Apprenticeship is suitable for office-based roles across all sectors, including finance, recruitment, legal, HR and professional services. Over the 15-month programme topics covered include personal effectiveness, communication, project management, business improvement, and problem solving. Furthermore, built into the programme are Microsoft qualifications, which focus on key areas of the ‘Office Suite,’ like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access or OneNote.
