Our approach to recruitment is different. Fundamentally different.

We help you to be Pro-active with Pro-Find.

Unlike any other recruitment platform for Apprenticeships, you are able to search our database of young people to find the best candidates for your vacancies. We understand that you don’t need 1,000s of applicants, although we have over 200,000 of them. You need the best 5 to be interviewed for the job. Our profiling system allows you to find them!

Location, GCSEs, UCAS points, career interests and even interview performance can all be considered to help you create the best short list in the shortest time. Simple!

By using this approach you are able to provide shortlists to employers in hours, not weeks, and fill vacancies in days.

We’re proud to work with providers and colleges around the country in their quest to provide outstanding service to employers.
