Recruit an apprentice (formerly apprenticeship vacancies)

Information for training organisations and employers to help use the new recruit an apprentice service.

Recruit an apprentice has now replaced apprenticeship vacancies as the official service for posting and managing apprenticeship vacancies and traineeship opportunities in England.

The system enables training organisations to post vacancies on behalf of employers to be viewed and applied for by candidates that use our find an apprenticeship service.

All training organisations have been moved across from apprenticeship vacancies to recruit an apprentice.

Existing users have been informed through their apprenticeship vacancies accounts to start using the new service which will contain your data from apprenticeship vacancies.
