Hiring an apprentice
We’ve outlined some of the key channels you can use to hire an apprentice or trainee for your business.
Online Jobs Boards
Online jobs boards are one of the best channels to consider when hiring an apprentice. Our online careers platform Skillsroad.com.au has been developed specifically to provide job-seekers with access to the best entry level jobs in the country – with a clear focus on apprenticeships and traineeships.

Group Training Organisations
A Group Training Organisation (GTO) specialises in hiring apprentices and trainees and placing them with “host employers” to complete their training and work experience. The benefit of GTOs is that they manage everything from the paperwork, training and mentoring of your apprentice/trainee.
Critically, they take the hard work out of finding, interviewing and managing the process of sourcing candidates, with many having active databases of apprentices that are ready for work.
With around 92% of companies turning to social media to find new staff for their businesses, it is important that you consider it as a viable channel when hiring an apprentice or trainee. If your business has an active Facebook or LinkedIn profile, we recommend sharing a post to advertise that you are hiring, and encourage your networks to re-share it for you. It’s a free and simple way to let your friends and network do the hard work for you.
Listing the position on your website
Lastly, if you have a well-established website with a good amount of traffic coming through, it may be worth adding a “careers” page to your website’s main navigation. From here, you can add the information about the position you are recruiting and direct prospective candidates to either call you or email you their details.
