Apprentices must be paid at least the minimum wage rate for their age if they are aged 19 or over and have completed their first year.

About the employer

Back in 1999 a group of senior retail managers joined forces after noticing a gap in the recruitment industry for a specific service that was totally dedicated to providing retail management recruitment nationwide. A business that is flexible, passionate, driven and enthusiastic. The Retail Agency concept was born and has continued to grow from strength to strength ever since. We strongly believe that to be able to understand your recruitment needs fully that we need to have experienced retail for ourselves. Therefore, all of our recruitment consultants working for the business come from a retail background. Being retail to the core, The Retail Agency is best placed to understand both our client and candidate needs.
