Established 'Apprentice Employment' Experts

Have you been struggling to navigate the world of apprenticeships for your business? Maybe you have headcount restrictions and need a different approach to apprentice employment? Then our Flexi-Job Apprentice Agency (FJAA) service could be the answer to your problems!

You will be choosing an agency with over 10 years of operating excellence having worked with some of the world’s most influential businesses across sectors including engineering, manufacturing and business support. You’re in safe hands.

A common misconception is that businesses think we offer our own apprenticeships, but we offer ‘apprentice employment, not apprenticeships’. We will guide and support apprenticeship disciplines and utilise our network of leading apprenticeship training providers to meet your business needs. It’s a full outsourced apprentice employment solution.

Apprentice Management

As an FJAA, we look after the apprentice on your behalf. They will be employed by us for the duration of their apprenticeship, meaning we manage contracts and payroll so you don’t have to.

We work with training providers to create a digital account for apprentices, supporting with the onboarding, mentoring and management throughout their apprenticeship.

All you have to focus on is their development in the workplace, we look after the rest.

Our Apprentices feel valued and enabled to thrive in their working and learning environment.
