Foundation Recruitment is a property recruitment consultancy with a staunch commitment to the highest levels of integrity and to operating in an open and ethical way. Evidence of this can be found not only in how we treat our candidates, our clients and our own team, but also in our strong corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies.
Across all of our offices and all areas of our operation, we strive to support worthwhile causes, to give back to local communities and to minimise the environmental impact of our activities.
Foundation Recruitment is proud to be a corporate supporter of the Seashell Trust. This important charity provides care and opportunities for children and young adults with special and complex needs. It operates a day and residential school, an independent specialist college, a residential home and a domiciliary care agency.
We aim for all members of our team to spend two full days a year, working free of charge for this charity. This equates to approximately 200 hours per annum – a significant contribution in terms of manpower and resources that we hope will make a major difference to Seashell Trust, its charges and their families.
This year some of the Foundation Recruitment team participated in the Manchester Colour Run to raise money for the NSPCC. We really wanted to show our support for the NSPCC, a wonderful organisation that is fighting hard to end child abuse in the UK and Channel Islands. We managed to raise a total of £571 plus £125 Gift Aid. It was a great event for a brilliant cause.
We also get involved with events throughout the year for various Charities such as; Breast Cancer Awareness, Children In Need and Text Santa.
Like all progressive businesses, Foundation Recruitment continues to seek new and innovative ways of reducing our environmental impact and of operating in more sustainable ways. Robust and regularly reviewed environmental management standards ensure we aim to:
Minimise our carbon footprint. Wherever possible, all members of the Foundation Recruitment team are encouraged to use public transport or to car share whenever attending meetings or traveling to and from their place of work.
We also train our staff in the importance of minimising excessive or extravagant lighting or heating usage and endeavour to use local suppliers to minimise the ‘product miles’ of any product or service we employ.
Reduce, reuse, recycle. Foundation Recruitment subscribes to the waste hierarchy of reduce, reuse, recycle. As part of this and in order to minimise our waste stream contribution, all our offices aim to as paper free as possible, utilising sophisticated cloud based technology instead.
To conserve energy and raw material consumption, we are also committed to using recycled products wherever feasible whilst we recycle as much of our paper, plastic, electronic and other waste as possible in a bid to help reduce waste to landfill.
Ultimately, in a world where clients, their customers and their stakeholders are all looking for increasing social and environmental accountability, we offer the reassurance of being a partner that takes its CSR commitments seriously.
