Collins McNicholas, the Athlone-based national Recruitment & HR Services Group, has launched a new charity programme to help raise funds for three national charities.
‘Refer a Friend for Charity’ is being backed by Pieta House, the Temple Street Foundation, and the Simon Communities of Ireland. Collins McNicholas has teamed up with the three charities to raise money for their amazing work.
How does it work? It could not be simpler. You just refer a friend, relative, or work colleague who is looking for a job or a career change to Collins McNicholas. If the company is successful in finding them a job, they will donate €250 to the charity of your choice.
Niall Murray, managing director of Collins McNicholas, said the ‘Refer a Friend for Charity’ initiative came from a company brainstorming session.
“Michael O’Brien, senior consultant in our Cork office came up with the referral idea with a slightly different approach,” he said. “Rather than offering a prize or a cash incentive to those who referred people to us, we decided to partner with a number of charities and let them be the beneficiaries of the referral.
“We then asked the wider team to vote on which charities we would like to support and we are delighted to say that Pieta House (with whom we have a long-standing partnership ), the Simon Communities, and Temple Street were chosen. We hope that our referral scheme will in some small way help with the incredible work of these very worthy charities.”
