Ep 24: Solving Skill Shortages With Apprenticeships

In this episode Matt Alder talks to Melanie Hayes Head of Organisational Development at Compass

Over the last few years an increasing number of employers have been developing apprenticeship programmes to address long term skill shortages in their industries. One company who are doing this very successfully are Compass who have offered over 3000 Apprenticeships in the last five years and have achieved a Grade 2 Ofsted rating for their programme.

My guest for this episode is Melanie Hayes Head of Organisational development at Compass and it was very interesting to hear more about the programme and the value it brings to her organisation.

In the interview we discuss:

• Why Compass have an apprentice strategy
• The different types of value it brings to the business
• How apprentices are recruited
• Differing candidate expectations
• The number one reason why every employer should invest in apprenticeships

Mel also talks about the changing landscape in experience hire recruitment and shares her thoughts on the future
