Who We Are

A4e began life over 20 years ago when large numbers of steel workers began losing their jobs as their once proud industry started to decline. We started A4e in order to provide the redundant workers with the training they needed to get back into work and on the flip-side, we were able to provide companies with newly trained, enthusiastic staff! From humble beginnings A4e now has over 3000 staff and we are now facing an exciting future, with huge global growth. Why not come join us?
