Instant Impact and Hand in Hand International

23 October, 2015
We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve partnered with Hand In Hand International in order to provide job opportunities for those living in poverty. Get excited.

As we’re the UK’s leading intern and graduate recruitment agency, it seems pretty fitting that we’ve partnered with Hand in Hand International, the country’s leading job creation NGO. Hand In Hand International fights poverty in developing nations by helping grassroots entrepreneurs with a combination of social mobilisation, business training, microfinance, and links to bigger markets. Across their network, they nurture the creation of more than 1,000 jobs a day and we’re enormously excited to play a part in their work!

Instant Impact staff voted to support Hand in Hand and we’ll be kicking things off with a big pub quiz on November 4th. Tickets are just £15 and include dinner and entry into the quiz. There’ll also be a massive charity auction where you can get your hands on some amazing prizes, and we’ve lots more planned for the night. Definitely not to be missed!

Although we’re busy planning lots of events to raise funds and awareness, there’s one thing in particular that we’re really excited about, our 'Job for a Job' promise.

For the next year, we’ll pay for the creation of one job abroad every time we fill a vacancy here at home, donating a minimum of £10,000. For hundreds of Hand in Hand members, the partnership will mean the difference between subsistence and success. For Instant Impact staff, it will mean the chance to transform a family’s fortunes – the best incentive possible!

That’s our pledge. Job for a job. Every time you get a job or place a candidate through us, Hand in Hand will be able to help someone in poverty secure a job.

You can read more about the amazing work Hand in Hand do (and how we hope to help them) here.

See you at the quiz!
