Every business needs creative thinking.
Secure the talent your business needs with
one of our apprentices.

What can an apprentice do for you?

Apprenticeships are often the best way to find motivated, aspiring and inspiring individuals that you can ‘home grow’ to add value to your business and its culture in the short and long-term.

We specialise in apprenticeships that can support creative thinking in your business. In 15 years as a not-for-profit business, we have placed over 800 apprentices with employers of every size, in every sector, with 85% of those apprentices going on to secure full-time positions.

Your business could be part of that success story.

Equality Diversity & Inclusion

We’re a social enterprise. Our social purpose is to enable people from diverse, backgrounds & experiences get into creative, digital & marketing roles.

How we do it
Our policy recognises the principle of equality of treatment & opportunity and the rights of everyone to those. You can read our policy here.

Our 2021-24 Business Plan has an Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Action Plan. There is still significant under-representation of people from some backgrounds, experiences or abilities in creative, digital & marketing roles. We’re working with partners over the next three years to increase the number of people in training & apprenticeships who:

  • Are from working class backgrounds identified through postcode deprivation index data;
  • Identify as  Black-African, Black-British or Black-Caribbean or Mixed/Multiple Ethnic Groups Background;
  • Have Special Educational Needs including those on the autism spectrum.

Our draft action plan can be read here.

More loyal than non-apprentices


As a non-levy employer 100% of the funding for the training is funded by the government for learners who are 16-18 at the start of the apprenticeship. If the apprentice is 19 at the start of the apprenticeship 95% of the funded is paid by the UK government. For example: Digital Marketer has a training value of £11,000 so that’s £10,450 to £11,000 of free training for your business. If you’re a levy employer (employers with a payroll in excess of 3 million per annum), please see our Levy Guide


At Creative Alliance we know how time-consuming and costly it can be to recruit the right staff to your business. We will advertise your vacancy, screen applicants and pre-interview potential candidates to ensure you only interview the most appropriate people for your specific role – all free of charge – saving you time and money.
