Find your own apprenticeship

Why wait around for your perfect apprenticeship to be advertised? If you know the company you want to work for or the kind of apprenticeship you want to undertake then be proactive and find your own apprenticeship...

It’s not as daunting as it sounds.

We often speak to employers who have thought about taking on an apprentice but just haven’t had the time to do anything about it. So if you walk into their workplace and impress them there’s a very good chance you could be recruited on the spot!

Finding your own apprenticeship

Don’t believe us?

Dominic visited eight butchers shops in Sheffield to see if they would be interested in taking on an apprentice – one said yes and two others said ‘maybe’ – three vacancies in just a couple of hours!

We’ve put together all the information you need to find your own apprenticeship and when you do we’ll work with the employer to get your programme started as soon as possible.

Plus, if like Dominic, you find extra vacancies we’ll advertise them for other apprentices to apply for and give you a £25 iTunes, Google Play or Amazon gift card for each vacancy we fill.

Take a look at each step below to get our top tips and resources.

Good luck! – let us know how you get on via Facebook or Twitter.
