Recruitment apprentice or trainee? What’s the difference?


Can you tell the difference between a trainee and an apprentice? An A Level superstar with the gift of the gab from a graduate?

We recently spoke to the manager of a recruitment agency who had an advert posted online for a trainee recruitment consultant.

Having recruited for a similar sized agency locally who took on an apprentice and having a pool of excellent pre-screened candidates available , we did the logical thing and ‘specked in’ our awesome candidates.

We were met with the unexpected.

“I want a trainee not an apprentice!” Continue reading

Recruitment companies, is your apprentice or trainee doing the right qualification?

A square peg in a round hole

It’s an old analogy, we know, but every day we speak with recruitment agencies that are fitting square pegs in round holes.

edo exhibited last week at the Recruitment Agency Expo in London and spoke to lots of companies about their training needs.

One man who prior to visiting the expo had already been sold on the benefits of apprentices over trainees spoke to us about our recruitment qualifications and told us he had recently taken on two apprentices Continue reading

Trainee or apprentice? What they’re saying at the London Recruitment Expo.

The edo girls on stand at the Recruitment Agency Expo London

While talking to London based and regional recruitment companies at the Recruitment Agency Expo yesterday, we were surprised to find that many of those we spoke to used the word ‘trainee’ rather than ‘apprentice’.

Most hadn’t considered, or were not aware of the advantage of taking on a recruitment apprentice rather than advertising to recruit a trainee until they spoke to us.

We really enjoyed meeting and talking to recruitment agencies about the benefits of apprentices over trainees, and in particular our search and selection service and our unique dual recruitment qualification apprenticeships.

We’re looking forward to another busy day at the Recruitment Agency Expo today!

If you’re at the Recruitment Agency Expo today, pop by stand 154 and talk to us about the benefits of apprentices over trainees. If you can’t make the expo, give our recruitment team a call on 0203 538 3134 or head office on 0845 2571 336.

This is a free service we offer to all of our clients who are looking to expand their team by taking on an apprentice / trainee.

On Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th February we will be exhibiting at the Recruitment Agency Expo in London, on stand 154, talking to recruitment businesses about how apprentices can benefit their business.

We offer dual recruitment qualifications which means apprentices can pair a recruitment qualification with one in sales/telesales, social media or management.

Dual qualifications allow learners to gain more knowledge and two qualifications without the extra work and it gives the employer a more knowledgeable member of staff who can really benefit their business.

Today we’re at the Recruitment Agency Expo at the NEC in Birmingham on the Institute of Recruiters stand (F22) talking to recruitment companies about our new dual pathways.

Drawing on 20 years experience in recruitment, we developed three dual pathways which allows learners to combine a recruitment qualification with a sales/telesales, management or social media qualification.

It’s a win, win situation all round; the learner gets two qualifications without twice the work, the recruitment company gains a more knowledgeable and effective member of their team and the qualification is fully funded. Continue reading
