Recruit an Apprentice

There has never been a better time to recruit a new apprentice to your workforce. The government are currently paying cash incentives of up to £4,000 per apprentice, meaning you can get a full time employee for as little as £52 a week. An apprentice will bring many new skills and experiences to your organisation such as ICT, social media marketing, money saving ideas and new ways of working. Gateshead Council learningSkills deliver apprenticeships to employers across the North East, not just in Gateshead. 78% of employers said that recruiting apprentices improved productivity. We have an award-winning recruitment offer which includes FREE advertising and assessments of all applicants to ensure you get the very best candidates.
