In business, are you all about receiving and what is in it for you or do you get more of a buzz from giving and putting smiles on the faces of those you interact with?
Our team at Collingwood have certainly identified with our love of giving and providing benefit to people which, I have to say, is a rather different culture that most of the recruitment industry that we operate in!!
Having spent 19 years in the somewhat ‘tainted’ world of recruitment, an industry that has gained itself a reputation for high costs and bonuses and all without adding much value, mine and Collingwood’s approach of adding value is sometimes met with cynicism! From our inception in May 2005, we have always been a values driven, family-centric business with a team that cares for one another. We have also always set out to care for our clients and candidates. In recent years we have also become very passionate about supporting charities, usually by enduring long cycle rides, half marathons or team walks. We have loved doing these team events, spending time together and seeing the smiles on our charity partners faces when we present them a much-valued cheque to help them invest in their great cause.
