Social recruiting March 2020

Whether you've been volunteering, fundraising or raising awareness, you’ve been a busy bunch since the last Recruiter

Keystream raises thousands for Marie Curie

Healthcare and public sector recruiter Keystream handed over a cheque for nearly £14k to Marie Curie, the charity that cares for terminally ill people, as a result of the recruiter’s fundraising for 2019. Activities included a sponsored 10k run, bucket collections at major London stations and a gruelling hike across the Yorkshire Three Peaks (pictured above).

Concept speeds ahead in business and on the track

As well as celebrating the company’s impressive previous year’s achievements at an awards event, where none other than former world champion boxer Frank ‘Know what I mean, Harry’ Bruno was on hand to deliver a motivational speech, CEO Chris Short has also had success but on the racing track. Chris collected a hat-trick of awards for Most Improved Driver, Fangio Class Winner and second overall in the SR1 Cup Championship in a Concept Resourcing sponsored car (pictured). Many congratulations to all!

TV appearance highlights need for compassion

Kate McCarthy (left), MD of McCarthy Recruitment, said she was honoured to appear with Lucy Herd (right) on BBC Breakfast at the end of January to discuss paid leave for parents who have lost a child. Lucy has campaigned tirelessly for Jack’s Law to come in force after losing her son just before his second birthday. Kate told Recruiter: “I believe strongly that, as business leaders, we have a responsibility to support our employees’ needs when they experience a difficult time, whether it be through bereavement, illness or any other life changing event. Lucy is inspirational, and I can’t wait to keep in touch and work with her on her future projects.”

Volunteering improves morale for Brightred

The SYF Shazad Yaseen Foundation Homeless Feed in the Slough area (pictured) and heathland restoration work are just two of the most recent projects the intrepid recruiters have been helping with – and getting a lot out of, too.
