Do you want to become an apprentice? Here are some tips when completing your application!

Before completing the application ensure that you read the Role Advert fully, you would be surprised by the number of applications received from candidates who are unsure what the role entails when they arrive at interview.

Complete the form in as much relevant detail as possible. The more information that you put onto the form the more likely that your personality will show through and the recruiting manager will get to start to know the real you. Each sentence you write should illustrate to the employer why you would be an asset to their organisation and your willingness to become an apprentice.

Do not create one generic application and copy and paste this into each vacancy. Each position varies and it is very easy to tell when candidates have copy and pasted. Instead, make sure to make each application individual, research our organisation and the recruiting department and make sure include some information about the company in your application to demonstrate your knowledge

Be realistic when deciding which jobs to apply for by checking that you possess the skills and personal attributes required set out in the person specification section. When completing the application ensure you tell us how you can demonstrate that you have the Essential qualities that the role requires. Also at this point, consider if the location of the workplace is feasible for you to travel to and also the working hours / schedule.
