At Direct Healthcare, we always aim to recruit and develop the talents of young people. Be it through supporting their future growth or helping them progress their careers. Therefore, we are very proud to announce the launch of our apprenticeship programme for recruitment consultants. Developed by employers and professional bodies, apprenticeship courses are designed to ensure that the studies undertaken by the apprentice are tailored to real-world job roles and responsibilities.

Completing an apprenticeship will provide you with a concrete theoretical and practical foundation alongside the skills required in order to progress and succeed in your chosen career. Because of this, we would like to introduce five reasons why you should consider applying for a recruitment consultant apprenticeship with us.

Comprehensive and engaging programme

Our expert team is ready to teach you all the knowledge and skills you need to become an expert in your field. Your standard working day will include activities aimed at introducing you to the world of recruitment. Through supporting our recruitment staff, you will perform activities the likes of:

  • Database management.
  • Filling the vacancies across the UK.
  • Reaching out to potential staff by various means (email, social media, phone, job boards).
  • Learning on the job to become a fully-fledged recruitment consultant after your apprenticeship ends.

As you begin working, one of our expert consultants will be designated to guide you in the completion of your daily tasks. They will provide you with all the support you need until you could become confident in completing your tasks independently.

Learning from a team of industry experts

We have been placing healthcare professionals into nursing and care jobs since 2013. The satisfaction of our agency healthcare workers has always been our top priority, while the service we provide to our clients is designed to offer the highest level of patient-centred care. We truly believe that by looking after our employees with great care, they will in turn deliver an excellent service to our clients.

We expect all our apprentices to learn and adhere by our mission, vision and values and incorporate them in their daily decision-making process. Our expert team will help you to make sure that all required standards are met while encouraging you to develop new skills and apply them in your daily tasks.

The opportunity of working with us at the end of your apprenticeship

As part of the apprenticeship, you will learn specific duties linking to a specific job role in the business of recruitment. That said, depending on your performance, you could potentially be offered a permanent full-time job position here at Direct Healthcare, alongside future opportunities of progression into a higher position in a short amount of time. Moreover, an important aspect to note is that being offered a permanent position comes with an uncapped commission and more than a double salary comes on top of that. According to ‘A third of all apprentices received a promotion within a year of finishing, and in their lifetime can earn £150,000 more than their peers without an apprenticeship.”

Remember, we are aiming to work with people who are dedicated, passionate, and enthusiastic in what they do. Going an extra mile will always add some extra points into your pocket.

Qualification at the end of your apprenticeship

After completing a 13-month apprenticeship with us, you will be awarded with a Business Admin level 3 qualification, which opens many different opportunities for your future progression. Whether you might want to continue training for an advanced, higher, or degree level apprenticeship, attend a university or stay with us in a full-time permanent role, you will have a multitude of options available to you.
