Apprenticeship Programme

We have been supporting young people through our apprenticeship programme since 2012.  FPS regularly recruit young people to work in all parts of our business and many of them are still with us today.  Education is not just formal schooling, but learning life skills and relevant job-specific skills throughout life.

First People solutions have been proudly supporting young people since 2012.  Within the past seven years, there has been 20 apprentices and three quarters of them are still with FPS in a full time role.  We offer apprenticeships in various positions throughout the business including Recruitment Consultants and Administration.

Within our programme, the apprentices are offered generic job training as well as specialist training relating to their specific role.   As well as training for their job, apprentices are offered employability training which includes CV preparation, writing supporting statements, assessment centre techniques and mock interviews.  These techniques will help apprentices should they move on from FPS, whether that be far in the future or after they complete their apprenticeship.

We continually work in partnership with Microcom and Skills Development Scotland to ensure that we keep providing top of the range training and are able to continue developing highly skilled apprentices.



We have had countless numbers of success stories from our Apprenticeship Programme, with many of the original participants still with us today!

Jordan originally joined the Construction Team 7 years ago and now specialises in the Mechanical and Electrical area of the construction industry.  He has also swapped his ‘Mentee’ position to a ‘Mentor’ position in our training, helping new members of staff.  Read his story here.

Calum joined the Oil & Gas team in the same way and has since worked his way into a Senior Recruitment Consultant role, focusing on account management and training of junior members of staff.
