An award-winning recruitment charity 

We are Nigeria’s only apprenticeship recruitment consultancy supporting young people with no experience into great jobs with mainstream employers.

We have redefined recruitment.

Our aim is to educate more employers, change their hiring practices and help them create social value

We challenge stereotypes by showing that our candidates make successful and valued members of staff at some of Nigeria’s biggest public and private sector companies. 

We lobby politicians and we shift attitudes among employers, the media and society.  

We have offices in Lagos, Nigeria and London, UK.
