The East Midlands is facing big recruitment challenges. Your business needs people with the right attitude, motivation and skills to thrive. With unemployment at its lowest rate in over 40 years, it can be tough to find those ideal candidates.
To overcome these challenges, employers need an edge when recruiting. That is where Business2Business come in. We help you find the right people, with the right attitude and skills, right on your doorstep.
The key is to recruit local. Local staff are more loyal, more committed and are more likely, if you are a retail business, to spend money back into the local economy.
Our service is at no cost to employers. We are funded by local authorities, the UK Government, Big Lottery and the European Social Fund.
From our base in Leicester, Business2Business has been working across East Midlands region for over 30 years. We know the local economy and the communities who live and work here. It is that local touch that delivers results.
B2B works hard to get you the right candidates, and provide them with the support to succeed and contribute to your business or organisation.
Talk to you about your recruitment needs to understand the type of people you are looking for;
Promote your vacancies through our highly successful social media activity;
Identify the right candidates and provide them with the key skills you need;
Provide ongoing support for you and your selected candidate(s) after they start.
We can also help you to access other local and national sources of funding to support your recruitment such as Apprenticeships, Traineeships, Access to Work, and more.
RECRUITER CASE STUDIES
An apprenticeship consists of a vocational qualification and includes technical certificates as well as functional skills in areas such as Maths, English and ICT.
There are two ways you can take advantage of apprenticeship training:
1. Recruiting an apprentice to your business
2. Up-skilling your existing staff through apprenticeships
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
New ideas and skills are the driving force behind successful businesses. Our apprenticeship programmes are designed to match your employment and skills needs with a talented and driven apprentice – whether that is a new or current employee.
Apprenticeships enhance the skills of employees, thereby contributing to improved performance and productivity in the workplace
Improved staff retention and motivation
Apprenticeships can support existing internal training and development programmes
With over 1500 apprenticeships standards to choose from, we are committed to creating a package that is right for your business. We are able to map your existing training and development programmes and competencies to nationally recognised accredited qualifications.
