The Handle Apprenticeship offering:

The Handle Academy programme is delighted to launch its first apprenticeship programme.  We look forward to providing career starters with a unique opportunity to gain experience in all areas of recruitment administration and the first step on the ladder to a successful career in talent aquisition.

The programme provides;

  • Exposure to the complete recruitment process 
  • Accredited administration apprenticeship training
  • A solid understanding of the recruitment market and insight into our specific client industries
  • The opportunity to be seconded into client organisations

The apprenticeship programme lasts 12 months:  9 months at Handle, learning from the experts, followed by a 3-month secondment within one of our client's organisations.  The apprentice will have an allocated mentor (Handle consultant or a client).

“As a recruitment business, working with some of the best brands, we already have a culture of promoting career opportunities and excel at recognising the non-obvious fit,” said Peter Tafler, MD.  “We propose to use the apprenticeship levy to open up opportunities to those from an even wider background.  We hope to recruit apprentices in all areas of our business in the coming years who will have real long-term career development opportunities."

We welcome applications from a diverse candidate pool and therefore are partnering with DiVA to source career-starters.
