You’re hired – 3aaa’s personal approach leads to perfect candidate

3aaa celebrated great success throughout National Apprenticeship Week, with the ‘You’re hired’ campaign getting off to a fantastic start.

The East Sussex county-wide apprenticeship campaign ‘You’re hired’ was launched with the aim of bringing 500 young people into apprenticeships. Within the campaign’s first week alone, over 200 employers vowed to take on Apprentices following events which took place in Eastbourne, Lewes and Hastings.

Employers attending the events heard from apprenticeship advocates who celebrated the positive impact apprenticeships have had in driving their business’ successes. Attendees also heard from Apprentices who shared their stories on how an apprenticeship had changed their lives.

As the leading apprenticeship provider in the country, 3aaa was at the forefront of this campaign, with our Brighton Academy offering support and guidance to interested employers and young people.

As part of this campaign, local IT support services company Extech found their perfect candidate in 3aaa Apprentice, Gianni Gennaro. Gianni has since made a huge impact on the business and they are delighted with his progress “We had been in the process of searching for a new apprenticeship company when 3aaa came to us with all the answers we were looking for alongside an outstanding Ofsted report, detailed information about their IT course and even a list of CVs for potential candidates that were ready for interviews.”

“3aaa have an excellent screening process when finding the perfect candidate; not only do they interview the candidate by telephone and face-to-face, they also provide the candidate with training and guidance on how to present the perfect interview. All interviewees that came to Extech knew the background of our business and knew in detail the role and responsibilities of the job they were interviewing for.”

“We have since invited the 3aaa applicant, Gianni to join the Extech team as an Apprentice Customer Service Operator and within a short space of time, he has proved himself to be an important member of the team.”

With yet more success stories expected to come between now and the campaign’s closing ceremony in September, 3aaa continues to bring life changing opportunities to young people throughout the country.

You’ll now find a 3aaa Academy in Bedford, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Croydon, Derby, Guildford, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Maidstone, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Northampton, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Peterborough, Reading, Sheffield, Southampton, Tamworth, Warwick, Watford and Worcester.
