Meet the Team
Corporate Social Responsibility
“Choosing my graduate subject was never a difficult choice for me, of course, I would choose International Politics. I wanted to see good in the world, I wanted to see change in the world, a change for good! Working at the United Nations in New York was a great experience but also a realization that it will take more than little ‘young’ me! Completing a PGCE to make a difference to children's lives was also so fulfilling, however, my childhood dream to be an entrepreneur never gave up on me! Saying that I was passionate that the business I built would make a philanthropic difference.
In today's socially conscious environment, myself as an employer, our employees, clients and candidates place a premium on working for and spending their money with a business that prioritize corporate social responsibility. For me that means, we make a difference in the world.
Every year we will support a campaign that is close to my heart, and this year we want to make a positive difference to the people of Malawi, supporting the education (child and adult) sector and sustainability projects.
We work incredibly closely with Alice Pulford at Love Support Unite.” Click here to read our Founders bio.
Love Support Unite (LSU) empowers people to become self-sufficient, with a leg-up rather than a hand-out. Community-based projects that integrate education, enterprise, nutrition and health, lift communities out of the cycle of poverty into a cycle of sustainability.
LSU is a small grassroots charity. Running costs are kept as low as possible.
Through integrated community-based projects, using sustainable infrastructure and resources, including clean water and energy, we create self-sufficiency and food security, breaking reliance on aid, and disrupting the cycle of poverty.
