SR2 stands for Socially Responsible Recruitment, and that’s not just a clever way to help us stand out from the crowd. Putting people up there alongside profits is part of our DNA, and we’ve committed to some pretty tangible promises in order to put that into action. One of which is our charity scheme.
How it works
We link up with a new charity every six months*, which we choose with the help of our partners at the Quartet Community Foundation. They’re a great bunch who bring together people who want to help, with projects who need it. In 2016 alone they placed grants totalling over £2.8 million.
During the time we support our charity, we give them 5% of our profits. We also help out by volunteering, with each member of the SR2 team committing to at least two days a year of their time.
And as part of our promise to always be transparent, we’ll keep you updated with how much we’ve given – both financially and in terms of volunteer hours – by publishing these figures on our website, along with details of where the money has gone and what impact it’s had.
(*If you want to recommend a charity, we’d be really keen to hear your ideas.)
Our current charity
At the moment we’re supporting the homeless
Bristol has one of the highest rates of homelessness anywhere in the country, it’s around twice as high as the national average. Here at SR2 we are focusing our attentions on doing what we can to support this cause in line with our charity partners at the Quartet Community Foundation ensuring we gift both our time and a percentage of our profits in order to make a difference to those projects in need. If you are a local charity helping this cause then we would love to hear from you.
