It's what we've done from day one.

We know that not everyone has the audience or budget to make a lot of noise when growing their team.

Since 2010 we've helped countless social enterprises, one-man bands, charities and startups to work out exactly what they need and get that message out to the right audience.

Whether it's your first ever hire, or an extra set of hands in a growing organisation, we'll make sure you get the best coverage and service possible while you get on with what's important to you. 

 

We know that thinking about bringing in some help can be daunting, especially when you've got 100 other irons in the fire.

Hiring for potential on a short-term probationary period is the perfect way to ensure you're making the right move, and our team know the importance of finding the right 'cultural fit' in a small team.

That's why we've developed a specially tailored package that's perfect for startups, social enterprises or small charities. 

Charities love our diverse reach and transparent process.

Startups love our efficiency, depth of promotion and how much time we save them.

Talk to us today about why startups and socially-driven organisations trust us to find them the right people.

 

As a social enterprise, 100% of any surplus goes towards supporting graduate jobseekers from all socio-economic backgrounds.

GRADUATE INTERNS

47% of recent university graduates are underemployed.

   
   

They are working in jobs for which they are overqualified. They have gained their degree, are highly skilled and qualified, but need the opportunity to put those skills into practice.  They can't get a job without experience, but they can't get experience without a job. 

The latest statistics for the UK show that 3.1% of graduates and 2.3% of postgraduates are unemployed, with these percentages even higher for women, people from different ethnic groups, and people identifying as having a disability. At AAI we advocate transparent and fair recruitment procedures and we actively support equal opportunities with the aim of real social change.

That's where paid graduate internships come in.

Graduate Interns will join you to complete a specific, time-limited project.  There is no commitment to giving your intern a permanent job after their internship - 74% of graduate interns will go directly into permanent work by virtue of gaining the experience they need to become more employable.
