AKR. Aspiration. Knowledge. Resilience.
Inspired by Akshay’s personal goals around revolutionising support for the disadvantaged people; championing and supporting employability skills training, on the job learning and self-employment – we are here to challenge youth mindsets around work, for the better.
We are an empathy-driven, social impact recruitment organisation that support young and disadvantaged people into work through employment, traineeships and apprenticeships – and direct employability/self-employed skills training. In just one year, we have indirectly brought together over 1,000 job vacancies and over 800 employers to thrive, together. Alongside this work, we also support SMEs through various cost-free support programmes under the “AKR Growth Hub”, ranging from legal to financial.
We are “by young people, for young people”.
We recognise. No. We thrive on understanding, supporting and growing our community of young people and our community of small businesses and through our work, plan to be agents of timeless, intergenerational change. Welcome to AKR.
Our SME & Start-up consultancy services help businesses to pinpoint scopes for efficiency and growth through unconventional channels, for instance, by claiming government grants such as R&D Tax Credits if they have a high expenditure on bespoke software development.
Here’s a brief overview of the areas in which can we provide this multidimensional support:
The AKR Community is a unique platform we have put in place to allow businesses to network with each other despite these tough times, and as a way for them to share their experiences, resources and mutually benefit from this. Our Managing Director Akshay founded Doorsteps, the 3rd largest online estate agency in the UK, when he was just 17, and has a lot of insight into the effort, resources and mindset it takes to grow your business, and he’d love to impart this knowledge to the AKR Community.
See below for a breakdown of the schemes.
Due to our diverse panel of providers, we can provide apprenticeship/traineeship programs for the following sectors:
We tend to find that these are the most common roles we get requested to deliver:
When we work together, you achieve more.
