Recapping on 2017, we’ve had another extremely busy year which made choosing our highlights all the more difficult!
Members of the team attended the Recruitment Agency Expo in both London and Birmingham. The Expo is the UK’s biggest recruitment industry event. The team really enjoyed meeting with the speakers and gaining insights into the recruitment industry from both events.
Throughout 2017, we were delighted to have donated to many charities including Concern, the Irish Cancer Society and St. Vincent de Paul.
In September, Emer Murphy (Director, FK International) took part in ‘Wedding Dress Wednesday’ as part of TodayFM’s Dare To Care campaign. People all over the country took part as they went about their day in wedding attire in order to raise vital funds for the Irish Cancer Society. It was a busy day of meetings with some of FK International’s clients, all with a view to driving awareness about the campaign and in turn raising as much money as possible for such an important charity. The work of the Irish Cancer Society is close to Emer’s heart, as it is for so many of us. To date, her fundraising from the event has raised a fantastic €8,255.58 for the Irish Cancer Society.
FK International were delighted to be part of the Ozanam Christmas Toy Appeal once again this year. This great initiative donates presents to the children of Ozanam House. We are very proud to support such a worthy cause and to help put a smile on their faces this Christmas. Ozanam House offers programmes and courses that develop skills and provide support in a wide variety of areas. They offer individuals, young and old, the opportunity to build their confidence and self-belief to develop and grow, so that they and their families can have a better future. This is all made possible by the wonderful staff of Ozanam House, a St Vincent de Paul charity.
We would like to wish all our clients and candidates a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year from all the team at FK International. We are looking forward to a busy 2018. If you are considering your options in the market over the holidays, we still have many live vacancies available.
Our office will close at 1pm on Friday the 22nd of December and reopen at 8.30am on Tuesday the 2nd of January 2018.
