Recruitment Services

Helping you build a winning team

As well as training your current workforce, St Helens Chamber can also help you to find new recruits. Through our employment programmes, we work with a wide range of people who are looking for work and we can help take away some of the hassle of recruitment by putting you in touch with people who meet your needs.

“CHAMBER APPROVED” YOUNG PEOPLE
We can help you to recruit talented young people into your business. We take the cost and hassle out of the recruitment process by advertising your vacancy and then providing you with a shortlist of candidates to interview who meet your requirements.

We understand the skills and attributes that businesses are looking for and we try to make sure that any young person seeking employment as an Apprentice has the potential you need.

Apprenticeships are a cost-effective way to add bright, young talent into your workforce. All of our Apprenticeship candidates (aged 16–24) will have completed an induction period at the Chamber before they are sent to you for interview, to make sure that they are ready for the workplace and have the necessary communication and teamwork skills. We won’t send you any candidates who have not been “Chamber Approved” as ready for work. After interview, you also get the opportunity to offer the candidates one or two weeks work experience before you commit to employing them, to ensure they are a good fit for your company.

MEET THE APPRENTICE
Meet the Apprentice is an innovative way of selecting potential candidates from the Chamber’s Work Ready programme to fill your vacancies.

The events enable businesses and candidates to hold informal introductions in a relaxed environment. You will have the opportunity to assess a candidate’s attitude, presentation, manner and suitability.

Held once a month, Meet the Apprentice saves you time and money when recruiting, by condensing the task of CV selection and first interview into a two hour event.

For details of the next Meet the Apprentice event speak to our Workforce Development team on 01744 742333 or click here.

STUDY PROGRAMME GRADUATES
Our Study Programmes are another great source of enthusiastic young staff. Completing an intensive six month programme of formal learning and work experience, the students are well prepared for careers in international trade and logistics or marketing and sales. The programmes run from September to March each year, at which point we will have a pool of excellent new recruits ready for you.

Please get in touch for more information on recruiting a study programme graduate or offering a work experience placement by emailing studyprogrammes@sthelenschamber.com

LARGE SCALE RECRUITMENT
Are you planning a large recruitment drive in your business? Whether you are opening new premises, expanding your current operation or just need seasonal staff to cover a busy period, we can help you to find the right people for any level of your business, from Apprentice to management.

As well as advertising your vacancies for you, we will short list suitable applicants, provide them with relevant training and qualifications, such as customer service skills or health & safety certificates, and even provide you with facilities to meet with large numbers of applicants in a short space of time.
