We started out in 2012 with just two of us specialising in recruitment of apprenticeships. Nine years on Apprenticeship Connect now recruits apprentices and delivers apprenticeship programmes across England! We’re growing every year and we’re always looking for motivated individuals to join our team.
Training and development is at the core of our business and we are committed to developing careers to help individuals become exceptional; that stands for our internal team too! Our ethos of care and support runs throughout our business and we are committed to helping Apprenticeship Connect employees become the very best version of themselves. From regular training workshops to enrolling our staff on to professional training courses, we pride ourselves on giving our employees every opportunity to excel in their roles. As our business has grown, our employees have grown with us and a number of our staff have progressed into senior roles, so there is plenty of scope for progression within the company.
We work as a team to create a business that is built on collaboration, open communication and care. We’re always looking to expand, so if you want to be a part of what we’re doing, get in touch!

"We hired our first apprentice through Apprenticeship Connect in the Summer of 2017 after the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy. We decided to utilise our levy funds to attract different candidates than we did beforehand and to provide much needed support to our key departments, with a particular focus on growing our own talent. Initially, we had entered into conversations with a range of training providers but having met with David Church (Business Development Executive), we decided to proceed with Apprenticeship Connect as nearly all boxes were ticked in regard to our recruitment needs. The quality of the employees we have recruited via Apprenticeship Connect is very high; the support and vetting undertaken by our Talent Partner, Steven Lipscombe, is excellent. Steven always sends additional profiles to provide accurate and honest feedback on proposed candidates once he has met with them, which is a real benefit. Apprenticeship Connect work to a timely recruitment window, attract high-quality candidates and are supporting us in mapping our wider needs moving forward."
"The on-going support and guidance from our account manager Christine Bookless and the Apprenticeship Connect team has been second to none. Every vacancy advertised has been filled and our apprentices are thriving in their roles. Apprenticeship Connect has been very proactive in helping us access additional funding for the training of existing staff members too. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Apprenticeship Connect and supporting the apprenticeship scheme."
"We had previously tried to recruit new staff using various recruitment agencies and by advertising our vacancies online, but we didn’t have a lot of luck. We were advised to try Apprenticeship Connect by Maxine Jenkins at Morrison Ward, as they have had success in the past. Apprenticeship Connect were very helpful and listened to our requirements, they only sent us candidates they felt would benefit from the role and would be an asset to the company. We hired a Mortgage & Life Administrative Assistant and he has settled in well and is starting to show more confidence in his role. This is the first time we have used a training provider that also provides the recruitment service, we were very pleased with the level of service we received."
"We have been working with Apprenticeship Connect since January 2014 when we decided to grow our business and help young people get into work. Apprenticeship Connect came highly recommended to us and our experience has been very good. Apprenticeship Connect came to our office to meet us and discuss what our business needs were before searching for candidates that matched our company ethos. The apprentices we have hired have been a great fit and I am very pleased with how well they have excelled in their roles."
"We have been working with Apprenticeship Connect for over two years and we have hired twelve apprentices in this time, as well as enrolled five members of existing staff onto training courses. The two apprentices we have currently are very hard working and they fit in very well to the team here at Day Webster. The employees we have enrolled onto training courses with Apprenticeship Connect have improved their communication skills and are much more focussed now than before they began their courses."
"We have been recruiting apprentices through Apprenticeship Connect for four years and the quality of employees we have hired has been great. Apprenticeship Connect are very professional and they have provided a good quality of candidates. All the apprentices we have recruited have fitted into our company seamlessly and Apprenticeship Connect have been a whole lot easier to work with than previous recruitment and training companies we have trialled."
