Recruiter’s charity ASTRiiD calls on recruiters to lend a hand

Recruiters have been urged to offer their expert insight to Recruiter’s charity of the year to help more people with long-term health problems into work.

That’s according to ASTRiiD’s chair Steve Shutts, who spoke to Recruiter at last week’s Recruiter Awards.

On the night a silent auction was held to raise funds for the charity, with a substantial amount raised thanks to the generosity of those in attendance.
