Charities matter

We already give money to charity by way of a contribution to the children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent. As a company, 2S Recruitment have already given £200 to them in order to help children in the UK who are diagnosed with cancer – there are 10 children every single day diagnosed with cancer and as one of our co-founder’s children was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour at the age of 3, her family and her son Leo was helped massively by CLIC Sargent.

We’ve also been keen to be able to contribute to help other members of our community and given many of our team consultants here at 2S Recruitment work within our social care division helping nursing and residential homes to recruit new managers and nurses, plus the fact some of our team’s grandparents have or have had Alzheimer’s, we felt quite strongly that we’d also like to help the Alzheimer’s Society.

The Alzheimer’s Society are a vital organisation who help educate with regards to diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, help in research of cause and cure as well as more practical support by way of telephone helplines, online assistance as well as local support. If you or one of your loved on is effected by Alzheimer’s or you would like more information, you can call the Alzheimer’s Society National Dementia Helpline on 0300 222 1122.

Team 2SR - Charity Matters

Friday Focus

Helen Chauffour is one of our recruitment consultants here at 2S Recruitment. She takes care of all nurse (registered nurse / RMN / RGN) recruitment for our nursing home clients across Hampshire and Berkshire. So if you are looking for a new job in Reading or down in Portsmouth (or anywhere in between across either county of Berks or Hants), then you’re likely to know Helen.

Why do I share this with you?

Well, Helen has been a crucial member of our nurse recruitment team here for a while now, and since coming back to the team after the birth of her third child, she seems to have taken to sharing some wise words. None of them are her own!

Fear not! The quotes she shares with the team on a Friday afternoon are from far and wide, and usually from very famous people (Helen’s email usually goes around about 3pm-ish as people’s minds drift to the weekend after ensuring all candidates are happy with any last minute panics over their new job starting Monday).

This week’s words of wisdom as retold by our esteemed Helen Chauffour is from the brain of Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger.
