What are our Employer Partners looking to achieve?
What’s in it for them?..
Better pre-trained and pre-vetted animal workers
By naturally enrolling onto the ACP programme, our learners already have demonstrated their commitment to learn.
ACP learners voluntarily jump through loops to get to their dream job ‘caring for animals’
By enrolling onto our programme, our employer partners recognise that ACP learners are choosing to prove themselves by dedicating their own time.
This shows commitment levels to the career from day 1.
The ACP process naturally weeds out any unmotivated behaviours
Our learners are already pre-vetted and consent to undergoing a full DBS clearance and a full social media ‘activist’ check.
Our pre-vetting eliminates risk and saves our employers time
Lower costs, testing the waters and having trust
Employers were fed up of paying for staff from agencies who were misinformed or sold to them, with no real training or motivation
Motivation and behaviours are hard to assess until someone is actually working in the job. (Often once it is too late)
Some applicants can be great in interviews, but not so great on the job. Some people are great at the job, but not so great in interview!
In the past, a large number of our employers, just needed a quick solution and would often look to recruitment agencies for inexperienced temporary workers who naturally came with risks and concerns around trust
Some of these risks could include animal welfare concerns, poor reliability or a lack of trust which would lead to wasted time, wasted costs and wasted resources
ACP employer partners feel safe knowing that with our learners, they can expect a commitment to grow and learn from day 1
Widened pool of candidates
By working with the ACP this naturally diversifies and widens the standard pool of candidates
Our programme allows employers to obtain talent, which may have somehow been missed due to a candidate being unable to complete an online application, having a lack of industry awareness, lack of confidence or common barriers such as nerves during an interview
The ACP process allows employers to upskill typical applicants and for applicants to show their commitment and behaviours through a more fair and accessible work placement
