Underpinned by industry knowledge and understanding, we have a large team of recruitment support experts that are ready to help you find suitable candidates to complete an apprenticeship or traineeship in your business.

Recruiting resources

Our Gateway team can help you draft an ad for your vacant position, and we’ll post it on our Specialised Jobs Boards and social channels. We have worked hard to build a relevant audience of job seekers looking for apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities in WA to get better applications for your vacancies.

With over 20,000 job seekers listed, we can directly contact suitable candidates that meet your specified requirements. The register also contains Out-of-Trade candidates, so if you are looking to take on someone who has already started their training we can help you find them.

If you have an annual intake or looking to take on a bulk number of apprentices and trainees, we offer clients the opportunity to advertise their program intakes. This is distributed to jobseekers and schools across the State.

Screening and testing

Our team can thoroughly screen candidates for you using a variety of specifically developed tests and tools to help improve the match between employer and apprentice or trainee.

An online quiz that identifies a candidate’s readiness for the workplace and suitability for the role.

A short, general industry-based literacy and numeracy test that aims to indicate that candidates have a suitable level of foundation skills to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship.

Candidate services

We can ask candidates to answer some short questions via video to assist with the selection process. This offers a streamlined and innovative way to assess candidate suitability quickly.
