RECRUITMENT PROCESS

1

Initial Call​

We will set up a call for you to speak with one of our Business Advisors who will provide you with further information and will complete a fact find to gain a better understanding of your personal requirements. This will give you the opportunity to express your needs and expectations of your new apprentice. The B2W Group can use this information to find the most suitable candidates for your role.

Advertising The RolE

Once we have a great understanding of the type of candidate you are searching for, we will advertise the job description and person specification online using various job boards and social media platforms.

The Candidates​

Once we have received and reviewed the applicants CVs, we will filter the candidates by screening and vetting them to ensure they are the right fit for your role. This will initially be done over the telephone where we will ask them qualifying questions and ensure that they meet the minimum requirements and criteria before inviting them in for a registration day.

Registration Day​

After the applicant screening process, we will invite the candidates in for a registration day. During this, we will:

  • Complete a BKSB initial assessment (testing their Maths, English and IT skills)
  • Find out what the candidate is looking for in the role
  • Complete a 1-1 to ensure that the candidate matches the person specification
  • Provide them with details of the job descriptions to match accordingly to vacancies
  • Filter through any unsuitable candidates

Employer Submission

The B2W Group will submit the final CVs of any suitable candidates for the employer to decide whether they would like to interview the candidate. If the employer is happy to move forward with the candidates, we will arrange the interviews and ensure all candidates are confirmed.

Interview​

We will send a range of candidates for the employer to interview and ensure that we prep all candidates prior to them attending the interview. This includes interview techniques, knowledge of the role and ensuring they complete their own research. Once the interview stage is completed, we will provide and give any feedback as to whether they are successful or unsuccessful. If they are successful, we will send them an offer letter, confirm the start date for their new role and book in a date to get them signed on to the qualification.
