News: Stafforce shows commitment to Apprenticeships


Rotherham's fast growing national specialist recruiter, Stafforce, has appointed five apprentices to full time positions and recruiting a further two new apprentices.

Last year, Stafforce was awarded Apprenticeship Training Academy status by the National Apprenticeship Service and offers a dedicated Apprenticeship recruitment and management service.

Practising what it preaches, Ethan Allen is being appointed as ICT support assistant in Sheffield, Chloe Sanders is now a recruitment administrator in the Rotherham office, Libby Shreeve has become recruitment administrator in Hull, Amy Louise Bundy has been appointed resourcer in Grimsby, Tom Sadeghi as technical recruitment support in Bradford and Kerry Hewitt now has a full time position as recruitment administrator in the Hull office.

In addition, Danny Faulkner and Kerry Hewitt are the latest new apprentices to be appointed by the company. Danny joins Stafforce's Central Sales team in Sheffield as apprentice telesales executive and Kerry is supporting the Hull team. Both are undertaking an Apprenticeship in Business & Adminstration.

Ian Anderson, chief executive of Stafforce, said: "We strongly believe in Apprenticeships as the route to future business success for an organisation – it is certainly a route we use in our own business too. Apprenticeships work because employers get individuals they can mould and shape within their organisation, giving them a great foundation to become future stars."

Founded 35 years ago in Rotherham, Stafforce has over 25 branches and onsite operations nationwide. 155 people are employed across the Stafforce business and they provide more than 3,300 temporary staff a week and works with over 500 employers, including local businesses, Sheffield Forgemasters, Stelrad Ideal and Braiform.

17 year old Danny Faulkner, apprentice telesales executive at Stafforce in Sheffield, said: "I'm really enjoying my apprenticeship and have learnt lots of new skills already. It's great to be part of a company which invests in developing its apprentices, it makes me feel a really valued member of the team."

Apprenticeship Training Academy status means that Stafforce directly employs apprentices on behalf of clients, reducing businesses' risks and making the whole process of recruiting, developing and supporting an apprentice much more straightforward.

The academy is already working with 77 apprentices and 16 host employers, including Total and PX Ltd.

TEK Personnel and Action 4 Business are now both operating as Nicholas Associates, following the consolidation and full integration of the two businesses after their acquisition by parent company, Stafforce in 2011.
