Recruiter’s Charity of the Year: ASTRiiD gets the vote for the second year in a row

The voting is over and the polls have now closed, so Recruiter can now reveal our Charity of the Year.

The winning charity is… ASTRiiD, a charity whose aim is to help people with long-term health problems by matching them with employers who need their skills. ASTRiiD was also our 2018 Charity of the Year.

As Charity of the Year ASTRiiD will receive publicity and proceeds from fundraising activities at the Recruiter Awards, which takes place at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Thursday 9 May, and later in the year at Recruiter’s Investing in Talent Awards.

Thank you to all of you for voting and congratulations to the three other charities for making the shortlist.

You can still support them by donating at their respective pages: Changing Faces, The Forward Trust and Unseen.
