ASTRiiD wins Recruiter’s Charity of the Year race

ASTRiiD has won the race to be Recruiter’s Charity of the Year.

Last month, Recruiter began showcasing four shortlisted charities on to be voted for the title of Recruiter’s Charity of the Year. They included ASTRiiD, Unseen, Only Connect and OPERA Global Youth Foundation.

With an impressive 40% of the public vote, it was ASTRiiD – a charity connecting businesses with professionals who have long-term health problems but who still have many skills to offer employers – that won out in the end.

Since 2011, Recruiter has designated a charity to receive publicity and proceeds from fundraising activities at the annual Recruiter Awards in May and Investing in Talent Awards in the autumn.
