AAB approached DYW North East for support in raising awareness of its 2022 apprenticeship recruitment programme, which offers school leaver opportunities across its tax, audit and business advisory teams.
AAB has a good, ongoing relationship with DYW North East. As part of their partnership working, they asked for support from DYW North East to raise awareness of their 2022 apprenticeship recruitment programme. This included:
DYW North East and AAB have discussed the possibility of doing an online or in-school event prior to, or during, the recruitment campaign in future years. This would involve more employer time but may help to raise awareness and boost applications further.
“I am seeing a jump in the applications received over the last few days and in particular applications stating that they heard about the programme from school or specifically DYW (Oldmachar Academy pupil), so your hard work is paying off!”
“The central belt is an area that we would be keen to build relationships with in DYW as we are looking to recruit more into these offices, so any help DYW can give us would be appreciated, as you’ve done such a great job with getting the word out in Aberdeen and the shire.”
