Inixiti was founded with the vision that everyone should have the best possible start to their career. Employers frequently complain that graduates, school-leavers and young recruits are not adequately prepared for the real world.
Inixiti addresses two big causes of this "employability gap" - (lack of) experience and a poor understanding of what employers are looking for.
Employers are encouraged to create meaningful opportunities to gain experience through Internships, Industrial Placements and Work Experience. Inixiti cuts through the perception of it being prohibitively expensive and complex, and delivers lasting results with cost-effective solutions. Internships are not just for the large corporates - the benefit to SMEs is proportionally greater.
Students often leave university with a poor understanding of what employers are looking for, and an inability to sell themselves well. Inixiti runs a programme of development modules, delivered through the university careers services, to deliver benefit directly to students.
School-leavers face huge challenges. Some are uncertain about which career to pursue; others are uncertain about the best route to their chosen career. Inixiti delivers talks to schools, explaining what to consider when selecting a career, and how to plan it.
Inixiti works with Universities, Employers, Schools and Recruiters to address these issues.
Inixiti is a trading name of Inixiti Ltd, registered in England and Wales.

About Tim Allen, Founder
Tim was sponsored through university by Marconi Space and Defence Systems, and graduated with a degree in Electronics and Control Systems Engineering. After several years working in control systems, he moved into industrial automation at AEG (part of the Daimler Benz group) providing automated control systems for airports, manufacturing industries, retail warehouses and process plants.
Frustrated at the difficulties of hiring good people, Tim was instrumental in creating a graduate training programme and built relationships with universities to find motivated and enthusiastic raw talent which could be developed into competent engineers. Tim became a visiting tutor for a Personal Leadership and Team Development organisation, tutoring several hundred senior delegates in both the UK and South Africa.
Tim moved to Nokia in the early days of huge expansion. In his role as Competence Development Manager he was responsible for creating programmes to rapidly develop competence in highly specialised fields across a wide range of emerging technologies, critical to the growth of the business. Tim later moved into product management roles where he was responsible for nurturing products from concept stage through to the market.
Tim’s latest venture brings together the many threads of his career. He is completely passionate about the development of young people, which he sees as the most vital ingredient in a successful long-term future for any business.
