We want to make sure we give time, expertise and money to the communities in which we live and work. We have tried to come up with a diverse CSR program, in order that our help and support can be spread across a wide variety of deserving causes. - The company, our teams, and many individuals, have invested time, effort and funds into our program over many years and we certainly hope that we are making a difference’.
Our program is spread geographically and diverse in nature. As an international recruitment business we work in many locations and a result our staff are encouraged to help select the charities and causes with which we are associated, and some of these are recognised below;
Little Havens Children’s Hospice;
We have worked with this amazing charity for a number of years. We have recently underwritten and been the main corporate sponsor for their 5K Kapow Run. This is a huge fun run attracting thousands of runners,
including around 50 from Tangent. Staff members have also participated in their pier to pier swim in addition to pub quizzes, bake-offs, gala balls, colour runs and Tangent own raffle on there behalf. We have also ‘lent’ them our staff during the week to help raise funds, and to maintain the hospice grounds.
Children’s sporting teams in the UK Ghana, Togo, Malawi, and Dubai
We have also chosen to focus some of our efforts on children’s sports. We sponsor two children’s football teams in the UK, a team of under-privileged children in Togo, and recently another youth team near Accra in Ghana. The children in this most recent team range from 11 – 13 years in age and are again from extremely disadvantaged communities. As part of this program we have also sponsored an under-privileged children’s cricket team from the low paid expat community in Dubai, and a netball team in Malawi.
Kindness Sharing Fridges Dubai;
Our team in Dubai have also been keen to do their ‘bit’ in their community, and they have been active participants in the ‘Kindness Sharing Fridge project’. Through their own fund raising and with the companies help, the whole team have been seen out and about, across Dubai, helping to stock these outdoor fridges with food that they have purchased. The idea is that this food provides a healthy and free meal to the unemployed and low paid, and the project (in its second year) is going from strength to strength.
A great charity dedicated to improving the emotional well-being and opportunities of young people and young adults with primarily learning disabilities and autism.
This amazing organisation helps to encourage children who have struggled within the education system, to find ways to fulfil their potential in the future.
East Africa Crisis;
Our staff were so moved by the on-going crisis in East Africa (an area in which we work on many projects) that they arranged a number of fund raising event . This included amongst other things, a sponsored beard shave for the office hipster, a sports day for the competitive athletes in the office, and a raffle. This spontaneous reaction raised in excess of £1,000 in just a few days.
