Welcome to the Big Academy. We are bringing together schools, youth organisations, employers and providers to help smooth over the process of getting young people ready for, and then into work. As a provider you can open a basic account for FREE. The basic account allows you to advertise your apprenticeship & traineeship vacancies for free. We target school leavers, so you can attract those 16-18 candidates and not worry about falling foul of employment law when advertising on job boards.
If you would like to drive more candidates to your vacancies we charge £249.00 +VAT per vacancy, you will not be billed until you have at least 3 x 16-18 unlimited 19-24 year old's suitable & ready for interview! furthermore you will continue to receive applicants until the vacancy is filled!
Please note that only real jobs and traineeships can be advertised, we will remove job listings aimed at building "learner banks” we will give you access to the learners, you just need to bring the vacancy!
You can create a profile and upload vacancies for free. Your vacancies will be shared with the existing database of job seekers. When the job seekers sign up to the Big Academy they build a profile of what they are looking for, traineeships, apprenticeships, graduate placements, interns or regular work etc.
If you have a vacancy that needs a bit more activity to drive candidates or you simply have way too many vacancies to leave it to an ad hoc application process, you may want to consider our SPONSORED job posts. This option is designed to deliver the best results for your vacancy. We will promote your vacancy outside of the existing Big Academy users and share with all the aggregator sites, youth agencies, charities and schools.
