FROM JUNE 2014’s RECRUITER MAGAZINE
On recruitermagazine.tumblr.com, Recruiter magazine’s tumblr feed, we showcase what recruiters get up to when they’re not recruiting
Putney-based GM Recruitment’s George Willis (pictured right) and Mark Foxwell (pictured left) led riders home to Guildford last month alongside former world F1 motor racing champ, Damon Hill OBE (pictured centre). Over 80 riders endured three days of intense cycling from Putney in South-West London to France. At the end of the event, GM Recruitment had raised a total of £680 for Hill’s charity the Halow Project, which gives young people with learning difficulties the support to live independent lives. Excellent work, guys!
Morgan Hunt and the Dame Kelly Holmes (DKH) Trust
The Dame Kelly Holmes (DKH) Trust, Recruiter’s Charity of the Year, held its fifth annual charity golf day at the elegant Brocket Hall golf course in Hertfordshire. Among the teams taking part was professional recruiter Morgan Hunt, which partners with the Trust to provide specialist guidance services to young people from vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds to get their lives on track. However, unlike last year, Morgan Hunt didn’t bring home the crown. Instead it picked up the coveted prize of… the wooden spoon. As well as the Morgan Hunt golfing ‘aces’ were a host of former sporting legends, including Olympic rower Sir Matthew Pinsent, Olympic swimmer Mark Foster, 400m legend Kriss Akabusi, Olympic javelin thrower Steve Backley and, of course, Dame Kelly herself.
And in other cycling news… Four days, 301.1 miles, 19,981 calories burned, 16,761 feet climbed, £10,000 raised for Alzheimer’s Research UK — and several rather sore posteriors. Those are the stats of a London to Paris bike ride completed by a team from PageGroup, including Steve Hallam, a regional director for Page Personnel. Along with fellow PageGroup compatriots Allan Waller from Michael Page at PageGroup’s Weybridge headquarters and Amy O’Shea, who works for Michael Page in Manchester, the trio set off from Crystal Palace in South-East London on Wednesday, 7 May at 7am and arrived in Paris on Saturday, 10 May at 3pm. Well done to the PageGroup Pedallers!
The Mayor of Warwick, councillor Bob Dhillon, found he had to cut through some red tape as he officially opened multi-sector recruiter Apex Recruitment’s new office last month in Tournament Fields, Warwick. Luckily this was one type of tape the directors and chairman of Apex were pleased to have hanging about the office.
