Helping employers to unearth amazing talent

The smart link between education and employment

What we do

Our mission is to make it as easy as possible for employers to navigate the UK education system to recruit and develop aspiring talent. 

We know the UK skills and employment systems are complex, so all of our solutions are designed to support employers recruit for attitude and train for skill – easily and affordable – where standard support doesn’t work.

Apprenticeship Agency

Apprenticeships are confusing or restrictive for many businesses. We are a government approved flexi-job apprenticeship agency (FJAA), which means we can employ apprentices on your behalf. Outsourcing to us reduces the risk, setup time, paperwork and rigidity of apprenticeships. Contact us for details.

Early careers recruitment

Unlike senior recruitment, where it can take months to find the perfect candidate, early careers recruitment is about clarity of message and speed. Acting fast, before the best candidates are snapped up by your competitors. We provide the support, structure and expertise to help you to recruit the best future talent fast and affordably.

Why we do it

We are passionate about social mobility.

We want to support people, whatever their background or life circumstances, to get a fairer crack at accessing good jobs and not be so reliant on connections, qualifications or previous experience.

By helping forward-thinking employers to recruit differently, we close skills gaps, improve business performance and staff satisfaction. We also give people a fairer start into work and a better chance of fulfilling their in-work potential.
