Smart Employment Solutions enables tradespeople to take on apprentices without the hassle of screening & recruiting, paying wages, or organising college. There is no additional cost to you, no recruitment fees or hidden costs: a simple hourly rate is charged ONLY when the apprentice is on-site.
Smart Employment Solutions is a recognised leader in employment and training services, having helped more than 20,000 apprentices and trainees into their chosen careers over the past 35 years.
We deeply value our Host Employers and their dedication to the careers, training and mentoring of Queensland apprentices.
Our valued Host Employers are invoiced ONLY for when the apprentice is on-site, usually 38 weeks of the year. All public holidays, annual leave, sick leave and college are not invoiced as these days are covered by the standard hourly invoiced rate.
Smart Employment Solutions is a not-for-profit, registered Charity. Our mission is to provide training and education opportunities through apprenticeships and traineeships focussing on young people.
For Host Employers it means less hassle and more time to concentrate on running your business.
We look after everything to do with the Apprentice. We are the leaders in Employment and Training Services with regular new and enthusiatic candidates.

I have been dealing with Smart Employment (Mick) for roughly 3 months now.
In this time I have been extremely happy with them. Mick is easy to deal with and has made the whole process from beginning till now effortless. They have done a good job in screening to hire their workers, as my apprentice is hard working, smart and hasn’t complained once. Something that is rare to find theses days.
I really like that SES really tries to look after the host as well as the apprentice. I find it extremely helpful that in the trade of roofing we don’t get charged for rain days as the Queensland weather can be so fickle.
I would highly recommend Smart Employment Solutions to other businesses looking to put on an apprentice.
