The Serocor Group of companies, which provides contingency recruitment, managed services and bespoke talent management solutions within the IT, engineering and business industries, is one organisation that is reaping the benefits of the learndirect recruitment Apprenticeship.
learndirect has been working with Serocor since December 2014, to bring apprentices who want to follow the recruitment Apprenticeship into the business, as well as enrol existing staff onto the Apprenticeship.
Derek Goff, Serocor’s Learning and Development Manager, is a big advocate of Apprenticeships, he said, “Bringing apprentices into our business has been hugely successful. Providing on the job training really benefits everyone; the apprentices get to see the theory put into practice straight away and we gain a committed and enthusiastic workforce that is keen to put into practice the things it is learning.
“I also think that training your staff in the ways of the company from the start helps to build more loyalty from your employees. We’re giving them the opportunity to build a career, gain valuable experience and move through the ranks. I can certainly see a high level of determination to succeed in those who have completed an Apprenticeship or are currently on one.”
Over the last five years Serocor has supported 20 staff through Apprenticeship qualifications, which have focused around sales, business admin and marketing, and it currently has four apprentices on the L3 Recruitment Apprenticeship.
“We have a great relationship with learndirect, they work seamlessly with us to provide our apprentices with the support and guidance they need. They have a good understanding of the sector and the requirements of the qualification and I’m looking forward to hopefully bringing more apprentices into Serocor in the future.”
Serocor recently won the Best in-House Training category at the Global Recruiter Industry Awards and were the winners of Best People Development in Business Award at the Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) awards in Dec 2014.
