Cheshire-based recruiter launches apprenticeship programme
Cheshire-based Perpetual Partnerships has launched a new apprenticeship programme.
The company say the programme is designed to help young people build careers in the recruitment industry.
The scheme will be delivered as a joint venture with apprenticeship training provider, Total People, and will offer hands-on experience, mentoring and theoretical training. It will follow professional standards and qualifications laid out by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and is recognised by the Institute of Recruitment Professionals.
18 year-old Molly Riley is the first apprentice to be appointed to the programme.
Garry Rogerson, managing director of Perpetual Partnerships, said, “This is a momentous leap for our industry, which has never before had an official apprenticeship scheme with recognised standards.
“We want to make recruitment a career of choice for talented young people by offering them a professional qualification and clear and credible career path.”
