    For employers looking for an apprentice

    We offer two levels of service for employers – recruitment and mentoring. Master Electricians Members have the added benefit of a monthly discount on their chosen mentoring package. Enquire below for your special package.

    Apprentice Recruitment

    Our goal to increase apprentice completion rates and minimise the impact of apprentice cancellations is supported by a structured recruitment process for apprentices. The recruitment process is a critical element for determining apprenticeship suitability, incorporating aptitude and job suitability assessments combined with face to face interviews to ensure the apprentice is aware of the 4-year commitment required to successfully complete their apprenticeship.

    Let us do the hard work for you, by pre-selecting three apprentices to meet the needs of your business. Our recruitment services are developed specifically for the electrical industry, and include:

    • Electrical apprentice aptitude and readiness assessments
    • Harrison’s Career Assessment tool. The Harrison Assessment compares candidate answers against the criteria of hundreds of job titles, including over 500 Australian apprenticeships and traineeships. This assessment tool is part of the apprenticeship Gateway Services which is an Australian Government initiative
    • Face-to-face interviews with experienced recruitment specialists
    • Reference checks, identification verification and apprenticeship eligibility criteria evaluation.

    Apprentice Mentoring

    ME Mentoring Apprenticeships provides support to employers and their indentured apprentices for the duration of their apprenticeship contract. This includes the businesses administrative processes, compliance documentation and mentoring your apprentice through their development toward becoming trade qualified.

    Employers have access to three levels of service; outsource as little or as much of the process as is suitable for your business needs and budget. Compare the three in the table below.
