Charity

Since 2011, Recruiter has designated a Charity of the Year to receive publicity and proceeds from fund-raising activities at Recruiter Awards.

RECRUITER'S CHARITY OF THE YEAR

The results are in and we can now reveal that Recruiter’s Charity of the Year 2019 is once again ASTRiiD. The Charity of the year benefits from activities and donations from Recruiter Awards 2019. Nominations for the 2020 Recruiter charity of the year will open in November 2019.

ASTRiiD (Available Skills for Training, Refreshing, Improvement, Innovation and Development)

 

Ground-breaking UK charity, Astriid connects people fighting long-term health conditions with ambitious businesses seeking skilled volunteers or staff.

The charity, which was founded by the late David Shutts OBE following his experiences of inoperable stage four cancer, has a mission to provide meaningful work for people with long-term health conditions and their care-givers.

Astriid’s free online matchmaking service aims to help the ‘invisible talent pool’ – job-seekers that have dipped under the employment radar because of a diagnosis. With a desire and need for meaningful employment, this community has the potential to bridge the UK skills gap.

By helping these people find meaningful, flexible work with businesses open to new ways of attracting the talent needed to succeed, Astriid aims to make the invisible visible.
