Macmillan Cancer Support – Charity Partnership

We're very proud to partner with Macmillan Cancer Support, and set ourselves a yearly fundraising target of £3,000. With our CV Aid and 'Heads Up' schemes, various charity and Macmillan hosted events, Macmillan has become part of HR Heads daily life.

CV Aid

They say a first impression is made in 7 seconds, so your CV needs to reflect this!  As specialist recruiters of HR professionals, we've seen it all, and we are regularly asked to review and advise as to how best present yourself to the market. we've created ‘CV Aid’; an initiative through which we support Macmillan Cancer Support. Whilst we won’t write your CV for you, we will give you a steer on its structure, content and presentation. For each CV we consult on, we ask you to make a donation, big or small, via our JustGiving page. Get in touch to find out more!

The 'Heads Up' Referral Scheme

The 'Heads Up' is a referral scheme with a difference. We recognise that referring your most talented peers to a recruitment partner can require a leap of faith and to reward and reciprocate that trust, we’ll donate £250 to Macmillan Cancer Support when we place that individual in a role (and they remain in post beyond their probation period).  Clearly the more talented the referrals, the more donations we’ll be making!

Macmillan Events

As well as ‘business focused’ events such as our HR Heads Breakfast Forums, we enjoy supporting Macmillan through differing sporting and fun challenges too. Over the years, the team has participated in the London Marathon, Ride London, The Rotary Dorset Sportive, Nelsons Tour De Test Valley and hosted a number of enjoyable fundraisers such as the Hobbs Fashion evening and a Wine Tasting at our Winchester offices! Our team has also enjoyed taking part in the Macmillan Pedal Paddle Pace triathlon held annually in Winchester.
