Apprentice Recruitment Support

As we come to the end of NI Apprenticeship Week it is great to see so many employers in our industry supporting the recruitment of apprentices.  Hiring an apprentice electrician can be a strategic and rewarding decision for your electrical business. There are many benefits to recruiting apprentices including,

  • Skill development: By hiring an apprentice electrician, you have the opportunity to foster their skill development. You can provide on-the-job training and mentorship, allowing them to gain practical experience while also ensuring that they align with your company’s values.
  • Long-term investment: Hiring an apprentice electrician is an investment in the future of your electrical team. By providing them with the necessary training and guidance, you can shape them into competent and reliable electricians who can contribute to your company’s success for years to come.
  • Increased productivity: As apprentices gain experience and knowledge, they become more productive over time. By investing in their growth, you can eventually have skilled electricians who can handle various tasks independently, increasing the overall efficiency and productivity of your team.
  • Addressing the skills gap: The electrical industry faces a shortage of skilled workers. By hiring apprentices, you are actively contributing to bridging this skills gap. You are not only helping to meet your own company’s needs but also supporting the industry as a whole by developing the next generation of qualified electricians.
  • Building a loyal workforce: By hiring apprentices, you have the opportunity to establish a strong sense of loyalty and commitment within your workforce. Apprentices who receive quality training and mentorship are more likely to stay with your company in the long run, reducing turnover and fostering a sense of stability within your team.
  • Transfer of knowledge: Apprenticeships provide an opportunity for experienced electricians to pass on their knowledge and skills to the next generation, ensuring the continuity of expertise within your company.

With this in mind, ETT has developed a FREE industry specific aptitude assessment, to help employers with their recruitment.  Aptitude testing should help to provide a better, more realistic and current view of possible candidate’s skills and abilities than relying solely on formal certificates of education.  They have been developed to provide candidates with an understanding of the language, Maths and Science knowledge and skills that they will need when they enter the Electrical Contracting Industry.  If you think your business would benefit from this FREE service get in touch with the team today.  Please note that spaces will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.  If you have multiple candidates that require testing, we can come to your site.
