Voice Communications

The PRCA’s apprenticeship application process has been nothing short of outstanding. Thanks to the organisation’s in-depth and high quality training, we have taken on a new member of the team who is extremely proficient and knowledgeable within all elements of the PR industry. From liaising with our clients in a courteous and professional manner, our PRCA Apprentice has become an integral part of the Voice Communications team. It’s been a pleasure watching him grow within the workspace and it’s all thanks to the superb training that the PRCA has provided.

Megan House, Senior Account Manager, Voice Communications

Ashford Borough Council

The recruitment for our apprentice was seamless. PRCA provided us with a selection of candidates which we brought forward for an assessment day. PRCA supported us on this assessment day and it was a hard decision as the candidates were of high calibre. Our successful candidate has proved to be a valuable member of the team and has since been successful in securing a permanent position with us in the same field so she can continue her career.

Judy Janson, Personnel Advisor, Ashford Borough Council

Shaw Trust

At a time when we needed more resource, but had limited budget, recruiting an apprentice seemed like a good idea.

The recruitment process was simple and PRCA held screening interviews on our behalf. From the very start we knew we had made the right decision, the training Jasmin received was excellent and she was keen to learn as much as possible from our team. Over the course of her apprenticeship Jasmin diligently completed all her PRCA Level 4 apprenticeship work alongside her daily work. Her enthusiasm and raw talent allowed her to get involved in more projects as her knowledge base and confidence grew, and she started to support the wider business, gaining positive feedback from colleagues across the country.

Jasmin remains an integral part of our team and organisation. She is the go-to contact in marketing and communications for many of our staff. She has represented our organisation at Apprenticeship events, acted as an Apprentice Ambassador and helped mentor another member of our team through her recent apprenticeship.

I would have no hesitation in recruiting another apprentice to support our talent pool.

As well as advertising, sourcing and filtering applications, PRCA provided us a with a shortlist of pre- screened candidates, the calibre of which was excellent. Their support over the last year for our current apprentices has been a great help.

The process was very simple, thanks to support from the PRCA. But all the important rules about recruiting still apply: the quality of interview is critical. Emma’s ambition and positive attitude shone through in interview.

The PRCA provided our apprentice, Laura, with first class support throughout her apprenticeship which gave her the skills and confidence to develop and grow within the workplace. The combination of in-house experience and the PRCA’s online and face-to-face study enabled Laura to learn a lot in a short space of time and she is now able to progress within the organisation.

The PRCA dealt with almost all of the recruitment process which made hiring an apprentice hassle free for us. A wealth of fantastic, bright young individuals were shortlisted and it was just a matter of picking which candidate we felt best suited our team.

We were so happy with the PRCA’s service that we’ve just hired a new apprentice who is proving to be a very valuable member of the team.

Shelley Spratt, Deputy Head of Corporate Communications, Cambridgeshire Constabulary

Templemere Logo

At Templemere PR we believe in encouraging young people into the PR industry. Our own apprentice has proved to be a fabulous addition to our team. She’s received high-quality training from the PRCA, and this is evident from the high-quality work she does to support our work and our clients.

As we are only a small team and our apprentice was our fourth recruit, we did debate whether appointing a graduate would be more appropriate for such an important strategic move. However, once the process began we realised that the calibre of the apprentice candidates meant that not only was this the best decision for us now, but also that it would be how we plan to recruit for junior roles in the future.

Our apprentice enjoys combining her studies with client work within an agency, and is looking forward to completing the apprenticeship with us.'

Clare Williams, Managing Director, Templemere Public Relations

The PRCA’s apprenticeship service presented our agency with a selection of high quality candidates suited best to agency. Our apprentice was supported by a dedicated mentor and assessor who provided assistance and encouragement throughout the programme.

At the Scouts we believe in supporting young people and adults to develop the skills they need to succeed in life. This is one of the reasons we are so passionate about the apprentices we employ.

We moved to the PRCA from another organisation as we were looking for someone to provide greater support, expertise and industry perspective for our learners. Our apprentices enjoy combining their studies with practical media work, and feel motivated and empowered to start their career after they have finished with us.

The PRCA worked with us as an employer to find and shortlist quality candidates with an enthusiasm for vocational training and media work. Their help and support in this area was invaluable.

Apprentices are fearless and bring a real “why are you doing it that way” attitude, bringing fresh ideas and perspectives. They receive superb mentoring and training from PRCA and we will be looking to work with them again when our current apprentice finishes his studies.

Andrew Thorp, Media Relations Officer/Media Relations Apprenticeship Manager, The Scouts
