Managing to strengths

As a global leader in employment services, we know what we do best. We also know the importance of engaging a diverse network of stakeholders and as well, recognizing and enabling each of their strengths.

We build collaborative and supportive systems in an environment where everyone can succeed.

Putting clients at the centre of what we do

We build our system from the client out, to ensure that it’s guaranteed to meet the needs of those we serve. We focus on impact, not outcomes.

Comprehensive support

Together with our numerous community partners, we support all aspects of workforce development for our clients. We get to know our clients and ensure they get the training, skillsets and wellbeing support they need to start work.

Co-designing local solutions

Many of our staff have lived experience of the challenges our clients face, enabling them to effectively co-design pathways to employment. Putting clients at the centre allows us to continually improve our systems and service delivery. This allows us to find meaningful solutions for our clients, local partners and the communities we serve.

Our model

A global network with local roots. AKG was founded more than 30 years ago by Duncan Angus, a ‘boy from the bush’ who experienced his own challenges in finding meaningful training and employment.

Duncan co-founded AKG, with the belief that compassion, experience and skill development empowers people to make their lives and communities better.

Today, all of us at AKG remain true to its purpose: to empower people through employment, health, and education, enabling people to thrive in their communities.

We achieve this through our extensive global network, our consultant’s skills and lived experience, and commitment to our purpose.

Our highly trained consultants support our customers with empathy, providing them with hope and understanding as well as practical skills.
