Attracting the best new talent to your business with Camden Apprenticeships

Cllr Danny Beales, cabinet Member for Investing in Communities and an Inclusive Economy - on making Camden a better borough

14 February, 2020

Together we want to make Camden a better borough – a place where everyone has a chance to succeed, where nobody gets left behind, and where everybody has a voice. The Council’s vision is to see local people access good work; an inclusive economy with the creation of jobs that are flexible enough to support people’s caring commitments, and that give them the opportunity to development and gain new skills.

Camden continues to invest in a strong apprenticeship service, recognising the significant benefits apprentices bring and the contribution they can make to our local business community. We’re delighted that so many employers in the borough have embraced Camden Apprenticeships over the years, evidence that they are genuinely invested in the development of local residents and recognise their potential.

2020 is the 10th anniversary of Camden’s apprenticeships service, during which time we have worked with hundreds of fantastic local employers and created nearly  900 apprenticeships for our residents. Apprenticeships have changed over this time, with organisations now offering full and part time opportunities to all ages, including university graduates, in a wider range of subject areas than ever before.

Offering an apprenticeship within your organisation is a great way to overcome skills gaps, diversify your workforce and uncover hidden talent, as well as a dedicated hardworking new employee.

Camden Apprenticeships provides free support in all aspects of apprenticeship recruitment, including the development of a job description, advertising, screening and training enrolment. Once in post, the service continues to provide support to you and your apprentice whenever needed.  Why not join our network of employer ambassadors and take on an apprentice? • To find out more about how your organisation could benefit from apprenticeships, please contact Camden Apprenticeships: apprenticeships@camden.gov.uk, 020 7974 8778.
