Our free e-guide explains how hiring an apprentice could boost business growth
Every day a London business owner receives a personally-signed letter from Boris Johnson. Why? Because the mayor is on a mission to inform every one of London’s large businesses of the huge benefits apprenticeships can bring to their organisations. With nearly three-quarters of businesses reporting improved productivity thanks to their apprentices, Boris doesn’t want London firms missing out.
The mayor’s penmanship aside, the popularity of apprenticeships is growing. Last year saw the number of apprenticeship vacancies increase across the UK by 29%. They are no longer the reserve of the trades. Giants across all industries – Waitrose, Barclays, Deloitte, Siemens – all offer competitive apprenticeships, with new employers announcing plans for more programmes all the time.
For an increasing number of SME and corporate employers, graduates no longer make up the Holy Grail of the recruitment strategy; the UK’s talent pool has expanded, and it’s apprentices who are blowing it up.
So what can apprenticeships and apprentices do for your business? Our handy e-guide explains all.
