Our involvement with local and in-house initiatives are testament to our commitment in supporting our communities and nurturing young talent.
In The Community
Successful Work Placements
Alongside local schools, we help prepare the next generation of workers by exposing them to working life and building the basic foundations to their commercial skillset.
GCSE student Kit Swerdlow, from Nottingham free school, Channelling Positivity, thrived during his time in our Nottingham office. Assuming daily commercial responsibilities and supporting multiple business functions, Kit was excited to put his new found skill set to use as he entered the world of work.
XMA Apprenticeship Scheme
We nurture growth from within and recognise young talent. As such, in 2017 we introduced a sales apprenticeship scheme and enlisted 6 apprentices with the ultimate aim to integrate them into the existing sales force.

“Without XMA's help we would not have been able to secure premises to work from and now even have a therapy room to see children and families! They have been so generous to us and extremely welcoming. Thank you for your continued support of Imara and the work we do. You have made such a huge difference to Imara as a service and to the lives of the children and families that we support”
Tamsin Baldwin, Executive Director
“For a variety of reasons I feel compelled to say ‘Thank you’ for finding myself in the midst of something that raises hope. As I await unlock this morning, it’s great to see how a “motley crew” of six has swollen to around seventeen, competent, individuals who not only have a constructive focal point for their day but to differing degrees have had their eyes opened as to a future”
"Richard", an offender
“I really enjoyed my time at XMA. I loved the work and the people were great – I felt very much part of the team. I learned a lot and the experience helped prepare me well for the world of work.”
