National Apprenticeship Week

Posted on 07.03.2018
by  Elivia Crawley
As it's “National Apprenticeship Week” this week, we wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate the hard work our apprentices do throughout the business.
 
Urban Recruitment Group employ apprentices across a wide range of our business areas including Finance, IT, Marketing, HR, Sales, Resourcing, Compliance & Administration.
 
Apprenticeships are fast becoming recognised as the superior option for work-based training. Over 80,000 employers offer apprenticeships in over 100,000 locations in the UK alone.
 
Apprenticeships have risen by 15% over the last year & applications have increased by a third. So why are so many people turning to apprenticeships over more traditional career paths?
 
We spoke to some of our Apprentices at Urban Recruitment Group to get their view on the experience.
 
Poppy – Apprentice Recruitment Consultant
 
“I wanted to do an apprenticeship as I thought it was a great option to gain experience in a working environment and a recognised qualification. I enjoy being able to earn money while I learn and enjoy building relationships with work colleagues, candidates and particularly enjoy being treated like an adult. I aim to complete my apprenticeship and gain my Level 2 Sales qualification”.  
 
Obed – Apprentice Sales Support
 
“I considered an apprenticeship as I did not want to go to college or Uni like so many of my friends, I wanted to get straight into a working environment and face a new challenge. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of a working environment and adapting to something I have never done before. I have always considered myself a confident individual and since entering the work environment this has continued to grow and develop. I feel like a valued member of the team. I would recommend an apprenticeship to kick start your career with ongoing learning and development, a recognised qualification and pay”.                                                       
        
Elivia – Marketing Apprentice
 
“I chose to complete an apprenticeship as college and sixth form was the wrong environment for me. I never enjoyed school and found it difficult to work at the best of my capability. I looked into apprenticeships and found out that I could earn a respectable salary while working for a Level 3 qualification. This was the best option for me as I wanted to achieve a higher education diploma to help me in the future, in regards to deciding to go to university or within the line of work I want to go into. I have the advantage of having real work experience and equal qualifications to those who have only been in full-time education. I feel this will help me massively in the future and I’m glad I made the choice to complete an apprenticeship.”
 
We strongly support having apprentices within the business and feel they are extremely valuable to the culture that Urban Recruitment Group has. They bring fresh and innovative ideas to the teams, highly motivated and keen to develop their knowledge and skills. We pride ourselves in being able to assist the next generation in getting their foot in the door on the career ladder and seeing them grow into young, talented professionals.
 
We frequently have vacancies for apprentices throughout our business. If you are interested in working with us then please look at our careers page or contact our Internal Recruiter, Susan Price-Hardy. Her email is susan.price-hardy@urbanrec.co.uk or you can call her on 0208 506 6014.
