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
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
An important part of our service at edo is finding businesses their perfect apprentice / trainee.
We understand that each business is different and has different requirements so just any apprentice won’t do. We would never try to fit a square peg in a round hole, which is why we put time and effort into finding the right apprentice for your business.
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.
If you’re visiting the Recruitment Agency Expo come and talk to us about our dual recruitment qualifications and how we can find the right person for your business.
Can’t make it? If you can’t make it to the expo, call our team on 0203 538 3134 to find out more about our apprentice / trainee service.

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
