I often get asked why the name Akira Recruitment? I named the company after the thing that means the most in this world to me, my daughter. It is Erika’s name spelt backwards, only changing out one letter.

I knew that If I could give my company at least half of the attention that my daughter receives then we would be off to a flying start. She is the very essence of what drives me to succeed. I want to ensure that I provide a better life for my family, job seekers and clients. Hopefully in the coming years Erika will join us and be part of the Akira Recruitment team, helping the company on its forever growing journey.

A Celebration of Family: My daughter is my greatest source of inspiration, joy, and love. This is a way to celebrate the importance of family in my life, and to instil those values into the very essence of my business.

Legacy and Longevity: I want my child to know that this business is not just a company but a legacy. A testament to the dreams, aspirations, and hard work that can shape a brighter future.

Shared Values: Naming my company after my child reflects my commitment to integrity, passion, and dedication, values I want to pass on and instil in the company’s culture. It’s a constant reminder of why we do what we do.

Growth and Inspiration: I want my child to see that dreams can be realized, goals can be achieved, and that with perseverance and dedication, we can make a difference in the world. Always dream big and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Community and Inclusivity: My child’s name represents a strong connection to the broader community. It reminds me of the significance of making a positive impact not just for my family but for society as a whole.

I take the values I hold dear and incorporate them into the very fabric of my company. Erika will forever be a source of inspiration, strength, and motivation in this exciting adventure.

The name Akira also has a Japanese meaning to it is: Bright, Clear and Ideal and I used this as our Motto. It isn’t just a collection of words; it’s a reflection of our core values and beliefs. It is the driving force behind everything we do, it encapsulates the very essence of our mission and vision. I am a straight talking person, there is no beating around the bush. I like to get straight to the point to not waste anyone’s time or efforts and I feel this motto has encapsulated this perfectly for us.

Bright: To us, “Bright” signifies our commitment to innovation and progress. We believe in fostering an environment where creativity and new ideas thrive. Just as light dispels darkness, we aim to illuminate the path to success for our clients and candidates. We are dedicated to continuous learning and growth, ensuring that our solutions and services remain at the forefront of our industry.

Clear: “Clear” represents our unwavering dedication to transparency and honesty. We believe that transparency builds trust, and trust is the cornerstone of any successful relationship, whether with our clients, partners, team members or candidates. We are committed to providing clear communication, fair practices, and straightforward solutions.

Ideal: “Ideal” reflects our commitment to excellence and the pursuit of perfection. While perfection may be an elusive goal, we believe in striving for it with dedication and passion. The word “Ideal” also reminds us of the values we hold dear, such as integrity, quality, and ethical conduct.

Incorporating these words into our motto not only sets a standard for our own performance but also conveys our promise to our clients, partners and candidates. It serves as a constant reminder of our aspirations and the principles that guide our actions every day. They inspire us to continuously improve, to communicate openly and honestly, and to aim for nothing less. Our goal is to shine brightly, to provide clarity in all our interactions. Thank you for being a part of our vision and for embracing these values with us.
