What Does a Recruitment Apprenticeship Involve? | Charlie Moore #NAW2020
As part of National Apprenticeship Week 2020, we spoke to Charlie Moore, a young recruitment professional currently undergoing his apprenticeship at Morson in association with Recruitment Juice.
In the second part of our interview, we ask Charlie to break down an average day at Morson as a recruitment apprentice and talk about why an apprenticeship was the right route for him.
“On a usual day at Morson we’ll come in, check our advert responses, get all of your admin work out of the way at the beginning of the day. Then we’ll crack on with sales, engaging with candidates and also speaking with clients where we can, just trying to be the network link between the two.”
“It’s really varied and never usually the same. There are client visits one day, meeting candidates the next day and the day after that you could be fully sourcing a job and in the office.”
“We’ve learned through a few different ways, it’s not one specific method. Things like quizzes, which seem to stick with me more than just watching a video so it’s good that there are a few angles to learn through.”
“The main reason I wanted to complete the recruitment apprenticeship is just for having the qualification and having a bit of a background. Learning the processes too. In recruitment in general there is a lot of legality surrounding it, in terms of discrimination so that’s particularly useful to know. This course has definitely given me a bigger perspective on things like that.”
“If you work with a recruitment company or any company for that matter and they offer you a opportunity to learn on the job through an apprenticeship I’d say grab the opportunity with both hands. There’s no cost incurred to yourself or anything like that and it’s more strings to your bow and another thing that you can add to your CV.”
