Blue Octopus is continuing its long-running donation scheme, having surpassed over £3,000 given to date!
For over two years, we have donated to charitable causes for each successful placement we make. Our three chosen charities (Yorkshire Cancer Research, Bliss and the MS Society) receive equal shares at the end of each quarter. The latest quarterly donation brings us to a total of £3,047.40 across the lifetime of the scheme.
Our donations each quarter are just a part of the charity and community work Blue Octopus carries out. Our “Tour de Octopus” event last summer raised over £350 for the three nominated charities, and a 10K walk in support of breast cancer charity Marie Curie raised over £1,000.
Additionally, we sponsor local teams Guiseley Association Football Club and Weston Lane Junior Sports and Social Club.
All of these causes 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 job seeker put forward by Blue Octopus then Blue Octopus donates on each candidate placed. Each yearly quarter, Blue Octopus tallies the amount and evenly donates the total 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.”
Recruitment has never felt so good! If you are interested in find out more about the Blue Octopus service then please contact us.
