The Apprentice comes to Dorset Recruitment Firm

The Apprentice comes to Dorset Recruitment Firm

With the UK national average unemployment figures reported at 7% recruitment firm, The Work Shop aim to get Dorset back to work with their very own apprenticeship scheme.

The Dorset recruitment firm are on a mission to find a very special apprentice and are looking to the future in skills and development by running a bespoke apprenticeship scheme. Their aim is to find the perfect person who wants a career in recruitment and be trained to the highest level by the very best in the business. For the first time ever, The Work Shop plan to hire an apprentice and train them to their own high standards.

Phil Harmsworth says, “We will be going out in search of the perfect Apprentice, someone who shows the ability and enthusiasm to want to learn everything there is to know about how the recruitment industry works, and eventually how to run their own recruitment office, as well as become a business professional.”

The Work Shops new apprenticeship role is totally unique, there has never been a role like it before and it will be an amazing opportunity for the ideal person to be trained by highly skilled professionals with more than 40 years’ experience. The apprentice will be exclusively chosen from candidates across the South West region and this will open up a full time position following 12- 18 months of training (although this does depend on their aptitude and abilities.) at one or both of the Work Shop’s offices. The Apprentice will receive in-house and external training and The Work Shop will invest time, effort and money into the training period.

Amongst general administration, sales and marketing advice, the lucky candidate will also be taught how to deliver expert advice to their clients under the careful guidance of Phil Harmsworth, Shelley Algar and The Work Shop team.

Phil adds, “In our opinion, an Apprenticeship in any industry sector is a passport to a positive future career and with unemployment the way it is we want to help get people back into work. We also believe that Apprenticeships are here to stay and are an integral part of the business and its future development and that is why we want to find an apprentice”.

Phil, Shelley and their team are keen advocates of Apprenticeships. Shelley and Phil will meet all of the prospective apprentices personally. Phil goes onto say, “We see this as a great opportunity for any candidate as it will give them advantages for future job searches and interviews, even if they are not successful for our role. The interview alone will help everyone who comes along to gain valued experience as they will see what is required in the future.

We also hope we will start to see other businesses in Dorset offer more Apprenticeships in all areas of business.

We want to train our candidate to the highest of standards and ensure we choose the right person to fit within our business and the one thing we don’t want to hear are the immortal words – & lsquo;You’re Fired!’
