iMultiply Resourcing, the finance and executive search recruitment company, is to make a £1,000 cash gift to a local charity nominated by one of its customers. All businesses who post a new accountancy, finance or executive search vacancy with iMultiply during July are being entered into the prize draw.
Managing Director Kirsty Mackenzie said iMultiply has seen strong interest from customers in the £1,000 Thanks giveaway.
“Many of our customers already support charities, but we wanted to encourage more businesses to think about which organisation they’d most like to help, and why,” said Mackenzie. “The third sector does amazing work, helping individuals who don’t always have access to the resources and opportunities that many of us take for granted. We wanted to say thanks, not just to the causes that iMultiply already supports, but to other organisations that may be new to us.”
Walking on glass and more for the third sector
iMultiply, which celebrated its £1 million turnover milestone in May, supports charities at a company and an individual staff level. It offers charities free listings for board-level pro bono vacancies, and all staff across iMultiply’s Edinburgh and Glasgow offices are encouraged to support the third sector by volunteering, mentoring or fundraising. The company’s Glasgow Manager Debbie Shields has just been named to the board of Women in Banking and Finance, a not-for-profit organisation supporting the development of women across the financial services industry.
Mackenzie herself sits on the board of social enterprise MY Adventure and is a long-time supporter of Action for Children, for whom iMultiply staff performed a glass walk in 2014, raising more than £1,000 for the children’s charity.
Mackenzie says that initiatives like these aren’t just good for the named charity, but also for individuals’ personal development.
“Our aim isn’t just to operate for profit, but to operate ethically,” she said. “We’re all about helping businesses and individuals grow, and supporting the third sector does both. It helps individuals better understand other people and challenges, and it has a real impact on the community.”
