Graduate job brokerage services:
With black graduates up to three times more likely to be unemployed than white graduates, there is a real need to correct this inequality within the British labour market.
AccessUK acts as an intermediary between the employer who is looking for quality BME employees and the BME graduate who is looking for employment.
AccessUK also helps BME students to identify job opportunities in Africa, the Caribbean and Asia. We have gone global with our solutions to address BME graduate unemployment. If you are willing to explore your options we will support you with the whole process of relocating and working abroad.
Black History Classes:
Access UK is a strong advocate of applying psychology and psychological methods to the delivery of frontline employability services.
We believe the mind and self identification, supersedes everything in life. Access UK will therefore, provide history lessons as a part of our general employability programme.
Helping to re-educate our youth and positively affecting their mindset, will undoubtedly boost their confidence, self esteem, motivation and ultimately their ability to succeed in the wider society.
Access UK aims to provide a holistic service which works collaboratively with external agencies and organisations. These external agencies will offer a plethora of services and specialist support ranging from housing advice to mental well being.
We cannot achieve everything on our own and we believe this is an essential element of our service delivery model, connecting local people with the appropriate services to get that additional support and guidance you need. There are far too many complementary services that are currently under utilised in the community.
Access UK will operate as a conduit or hub, where we can refer service users to other agencies and organisations.
Access UK liaises with local community leaders to ensure our partners provide the right support for our clients. The services we partner with are only organisations that the community recognise as quality service providers.
AccessUK will make a pledge to either create a CV or CV proforma with our service users within 4 weeks of joining our programme.
Clients can look forward to creating a CV that represents them and is tailored to reflect their own interests and uniqueness.
Access UK offers a professional and competitively priced recruitment services on behalf of clients. We work closely with employers and our beneficiaries to ensure they are well matched and employ a dedicated consultant to identify local and national employers who share Access UK's passion for diversity and our commitment to help more BAME youths into employment and training.
Reasons why employers should use the services of Access UK:
- Gain access to our large database of qualified and non qualified BME job seekers.
- Access UK provides pre-employment training for every client to ensure that they move seamlessly into employment.
- We help businesses to improve their staff diversity by providing highly qualified and skilled BME candidates.
- Your business can source local talent within the communities you operate in, with a reduced risk, guaranteed by Access UK’s talent pool sifting process.
- 77% of known gang members in London are reputedly black males.
- 80% of violent crime that is committed against a Black male is committed by a another Black male.
- Black Males are three times more likely to be imprisoned for an identical crime that is committed by a white offender.
It's about time we critically analysed these statistics and asked the question of why.
Access UK is one of a select group of careers practitioners that offer tailored gang mediation services to address this important but sensitive issue. We refuse to ignore the elephant in the room as young black lives are cut short on a daily basis. Generic mainstream interventions only tackle the aesthetics of the gang problem and are therefore destined to continually fail to have any real long lasting impact.(Please review Access UK's "Programmes" page to get more information).
