As well as training your current workforce, St Helens Chamber 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 for you and providing you with shortlisted candidates to interview that meet your requirements.

In addition, you will receive a contribution of £1000 towards the cost of hiring and training Apprentices, if they are aged 16-18.

All of our Apprenticeship candidates will complete an induction period at the Chamber before they are sent for interview to make sure they are ‘Chamber Approved’ and ready for work.
