Trainee Recruitment

No matter what industry you are in, hiring a trainee is a great option for recruiting junior staff to fulfil your entry-level business requirements and support a young person into a meaningful career.

WorkVentures sources trainees and places them with host employers as an alternative career pathway that’s right for them.

Trainee recruitment is ideal for businesses of any size. Trainees are a cost-effective employment option and they bring new ideas and fresh perspectives to your business.

You and your business may wish to support your local community but struggle to find the time to do so meaningfully. Engaging young people in traineeships is a great way to ensure your business is making a real impact and a valuable contribution to the community.
