How many miles?

27 miles!

Not just 27 miles along a straight, easy to walk, soft under foot type of walk either … 27 miles up and down the mountains they call the Brecon Beacons for charity.

This is where a team of 7 people, known as Team Leo, will be heading on the weekend of June 7/8th. And it is all in aid of the children’s charity CLIC Sargent who helped my family and I throughout Leo, my son’s, cancer diagnosis and treatment back in 2008.

In fact, along with me on this (27 mile?!) trek will be Louise Hewitt and also Gillian Davies, both of whom are key members of the 2S Recruitment team, and they recently opened up the North West office for 2S Recruitment.

Other members of Team Leo, all raising vital funds for CLIC Sargent are Julie from Sutherland Saddlery and also three fantastic parents from my son’s school, even though Leo has not been well enough to attend school since November 2012 due to late effects of the cancer treatment.

I am really proud to have thought initially I’d be doing this trek (did I mention it was 27 miles … up and then down and then up and then down some very big hills / mountains!!) and now we are a fantastic team of 7, all with different motivations for wanting to jump on board the fundraising train (but only training from now on, and now trains for us!)

We shall keep you posted as to how our training and fundraising is going, as well as sending a little plea out there for some sponsorship closer to the time.

Passionate 2SR recruiting team give cash to children’s cancer charity

The recruitment consultancy 2S Recruitment has announced a brand new profit sharing scheme as part of an initiative to raise money for the children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent. The agency, which specialises in recruiting for the care, property and commercial sectors, will donate at least £20 to the charity every time it places a candidate in a new role. The moves comes on top of previous donations which have so far seen 2S Recruitment partners and staff raise more than £21,000.

The commitment to CLIC Sargent has both personal and professional significance for 2S Recruitment following an early childhood cancer diagnosis.  Helen Sanders, Partner at 2S Recruitment says, “As a company, we want to give back and ensure our hard work helps others. By donating to CLIC Sargent, we can help the charity to make a difference to the 10 children each day who are diagnosed with cancer during childhood. My son Leo was 3 when he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer. He is now 8 and cancer free. As a mum, I know how much CLIC Sargent helped our son Leo throughout his diagnosis and treatment. As a business woman I feel it is important to help charities like CLIC Sargent to do their work by donating a percentage of profits each time we make a placement. We feel driven to make a difference.”

Like CLIC Sargent, 2S Recruitment is dedicated to providing care. The company has a proven track record of finding registered nurses, care home and nursing home managers and other care staff and placing them where they are needed most. Many of the recruiters themselves have previously worked in such roles therefore they know exactly what it takes to match the right nurse to the right care facility.

As well as the care sector, 2S Recruitment also offers recruitment services for the property sector and the commercial market, lending its expertise to recruiting sales managers, temporary and permanent sales consultants and facilities managers. With all three of these sectors currently undergoing resurgence and with more vacancies to fill than ever, before 2S Recruitment’s profit sharing initiative is already going from strength to strength.

Its £10 per placement donation joins a ‘Miles for CLIC’ campaign which saw 2S Recruitment team members pounding the pavements each week, with each mile walked matched by a consultancy donation.
