How Inspira supported AJ Security recruitment

Adrian Kirk Bride, the owner of AJ Security and director of AJ Training Academy in west Cumbria initially contacted Inspira for help with looking employing local job seekers outside of their small circle and providing employment programmes to help get people back into work. One of our Skills and Development Adviser got in touch, and together began working to deliver a programme that provides attendees with personal and professional development opportunities including:

  • Building transferable skills and interview techniques
  • Build confidence, motivation, and resilience
  • Gain accredited qualifications
  • Gain great support from a local employer
  • Supported learning/ training
“Working with Inspira has helped meet the demand of providing SIA Licenced staff for the industry. We have a brilliant working relationship with Inspira, and this can be seen by the quality of those put forward for our courses. Working with Inspira has made our network so much bigger so we can offer more work to people outside of our little circles and they’ve proved another use. Proving that they are delivering what the security industry currently needs.”
