From November 2018, levy paying employers with an apprenticeship service account will notice a new “Recruitment” link on their account home page. This new link will give the employer direct access to the Recruit an apprentice tool, enabling them to create and post apprenticeship vacancies on Find an apprenticeship and manage applications.
Creating a vacancy through Recruit an apprentice is a simple and straightforward process. Once submitted, vacancies are quality checked within 24 hours and are either posted, or returned for amendments and review.
In order to post a vacancy employers are required to have a relationship with a training provider. From user research with candidates we found that individuals want to see which training provider will be delivering the apprenticeship. Employers will need to reference the provider’s UK Provider Reference number (UKPRN) when completing the vacancy request.
