PHX Training is looking for employers who may be interested in recruiting an apprentice. The current economic climate has placed immense pressure on employers and their workforce and recruiting an apprentice may be an economical option.
For less than £100 per week for each apprentice, this may be a good opportunity to explore your business needs and think about your future developments.
So, what are the business benefits?
• Apprenticeships can help businesses across all sectors by offering a route to harness fresh new talent
• UK businesses consider skills shortages and recruitment difficulties a bigger threat to performance than soaring oil prices and declining consumer spending, and more than a quarter of these rate this form of vocational training higher than any other qualification
• Apprenticeships ensure that your workforce has the practical skills and qualifications your organisation needs now and in the future. The mixture of on and off job learning ensures they learn the skills that work best for your business
• Over 130,000 workplaces offer apprentice places because they understand the benefits that apprentices bring to their business – increased productivity, improved competitiveness and a committed and competent work-force
Improve your bottom line: Apprenticeships deliver real returns to your bottom line, helping employers to improve productivity and to be more competitive. Training apprentices can also be more cost effective than hiring skilled staff, leading to lower overall training and recruitment costs.
Fill your skills gaps: Apprenticeships deliver skills designed around your business needs providing the skilled workers you require for the future. They also help you develop the specialist skills you need to keep pace with the latest technology and working practices in your sector.
Motivate your workforce: Apprentices tend to be eager, motivated, flexible and loyal to the company that invested in them. Remember, an apprentice is with you because they want to be – they have made an active choice to learn on the job and a commitment to a specific career.
What are you waiting for? Most apprenticeships are between 9 and 12 months duration. Specific areas that we are looking for are: Business Administration, Warehousing and Storage, Retail, Customer Service, ITQ, Team Leading and Management at level 3.
