K10 and The Amateur Boxing Association of England Pack a Punch

box web

K10 and The Amateur Boxing Association (ABA) have established a partnership to support young London boxers into employment. We strongly believe that the discipline, commitment, hard-work and passion that is often in abundance within these clubs, will serve as a fantastic source of candidates for our apprenticeship opportunities. Furthermore, the partnership looks to promote physical health and employment to encourage and develop personal growth and empowerment.

Clubs will earn £100 for each apprentice they recommend; which they can put towards their own running costs.

Richard Powers, England Boxing’s club support officer for London, said: ‘This is a great opportunity for boxing clubs to help boost the career prospects of unemployed members whilst earning some much-needed cash to go towards their own running costs.’

Director Tom Storey said: ‘K10 is delighted to enter into this partnership with England Boxing. As an employer of apprentices, we recognise the importance of discipline, organisation and commitment in the individuals we look to source for our vacancies. We believe that boxing provides that discipline and focus to lots of young people.’
