Blue Octopus, an online recruitment company based in Yorkshire, has set up a scheme so that every time they place a candidate they donate £1 to their clients chosen charity.
Blue Octopus, who also sponsored the very successful Bliss charity football match on the 30th of September, has chosen three charities to support. They are;
1: Yorkshire Cancer Research are the UK’s largest regional medical research charity, funding cancer research that is carried out by world-class scientists and clinicians across Yorkshire and providing cancer information to help local people beat cancer.
2: The MS Society is the UK’s leading MS charity. Since 1953, they’ve been providing information and support, funding research and fighting for change.
3: Bliss is a charity for babies born too soon, too small or too sick.
All of these charities have had significant impact on the Blue Octopus team, which is why they have been carefully selected.
More information of the scheme is below: Blue Octopus works with a client to fill a vacant role.
The client fills the role with a jobseeker put forward by Blue Octopus then Blue Octopus donates £1 per candidate placed. The client then chooses which charity the money is donated to.
Each quarter, Blue Octopus donates the tallied amount to each charity.
Chris Coleman (Joint Managing Director) said;
‘I’m really glad that we can support these charities as they mean so much to the staff here at Blue Octopus’
