Apprentices can bring a lot to a start-up

Apprentices are not restricted to big businesses and manual labour. Nowadays apprenticeships are happening in every industry in businesses large and small. If you are a start-up business, it might be worth considering what an apprentice can offer you.

Below are just a handful of the positives to gain from hiring an apprentice.

  • A start-up has limited resources. An apprentice can be moved around the workplace, completing any jobs that need to be done.
  • You can bring new talent on to the workforce, which will boost morale and energy levels.
  • You are doing your bit to tackle youth unemployment in the UK.
  • The process is fairly cheap; the hourly minimum rate for an apprentice is GBP2.65.
