With over 15 years experience in apprenticeships, both pre and post Levy, our consultants have successfully supported apprentices, employers and providers with applications, implementation and recruitment.
We have successfully created various large and small programmes for employers, from concept to realisation and roll out. We have participated in multiple Trailblazer groups and currently, our Director, Adele Carnera, is the Chair of the Essex Apprentice Ambassador Network.
Our nominations and awards for our work within apprenticeships have supported our passion and include recognition by Government and invitations, which we gratefully accepted, to Parliament and Downing Street.
OPRA APPRENTICE RECRUITMENT
Apprentice recruitment is a unique field that needs special consideration and expertise. Our experienced consultants use their knowledge to help you build a robust apprentice recruitment programme that will consider the needs of a specific audience and employee group. We can support with candidate attraction methods, assessment tools, onboarding and training provider liaison.
How It Works
Work With You
The Apprenticeship Levy was announced in the Government November Spending Review 2015. It is essentially an additional payroll tax, set at 0.5% of an employer’s annual pay bill, collected through PAYE. The Levy came into force in April 2017 and affects all employers with a presence in the UK, from businesses to charities to schools, regardless of sector, with an annual pay bill of more than £3 million. Groups of companies under a common ownership structure will be treated as one business. The OPRA Group will assist businesses to understand and utilise the levy.
What our clients say about us
I normally receive CV’s as soon as I raise a vacancy, so I am confident that The OPRA Group starts to source candidates as soon as they receive the job specifications.
I would like to say that the job application process was seamless and I always had confidence that you would do what you said in a timely manner. You were supremely supportive and always available. I could not have asked for more from my agent.
Thank you so much
