In 2015, Recruitment Panda struck what has become an enduring partnership with Anglia Giving. Through them, we have supported an incredible range of charities. Literally, every charity which is close to the hearts of our candidates.
The result is:
Charities supported include:
Business working with Wythenshawe is an amazing organisation with a mission to support, inspire, innovate & volunteer in Wythenshawe, Manchester. Wythenshawe has been home to a Recruitment Panda office since 2015.
Members of the Recruitment Panda team take part in their Aspirational Mentorship programme which involves training, before being partnered with a GCSE or A-Level student from local schools and colleges. We meet regularly, helping support, guide and encourage through key stages of education and/or entry into the working world.
BW3's Aspirational mentorship programme:
James Eldon, principal of Manchester Enterprise Academy described it as a “revolution in aspiration”.
As consultant recruiters, our insight of the world of employment has been valued by mentees and BW3. We have been asked to increase our involvement and are very glad to do so.
Socio-economically, Wythenshawe is thought to be a disadvantaged area of the city. In the not too distant past, The New York Times described Wythenshawe as an "extreme pocket of social deprivation and alienation". We challenge that negative impression of our neighbourhood because the Wythenshawe we recognise is this, far more up to date, view of our amazing home.
Through our involvement with BW3 Recruitment Panda joins companies such as Manchester Airports Group, Microsoft, The Co-op, Laing O' Rourke, Amazon and others in doing so, supporting the region's future economy, through education and empowerment.
