The leading specialist recruitment firm, the Danos Group, is pleased to announce an exciting partnership with Leadership Through Sport & Business (LTSB), a social mobility charity that prepares and supports bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds into meaningful roles within Business and Finance, and Digital / Technology.
Commenting on the announcement, the Danos Group Global Managing Partner Dominic Danos stated, “We realise we have the power as a recruitment company to actively influence the inflow of under-represented groups into the sector we service, thereby helping to advance the diversity and inclusion agenda. As a sector it is important that we address the under-representation of minority groups and ensure a career in the financial services industry is appealing to the next generation of professionals.”
“We admire LTSB for focusing on those young people from underprivileged backgrounds, by delivering them a dedicated program and the support to enable them. As recruitment and market experts, we know we can help support these young people with practical advice and guidance. Our senior managers will be mentoring young people on the LTSB program, and as a group we are committed to fundraising on their behalf. We will also promote the LTSB apprenticeship scheme to our clients and networks to increase the hiring of young people.”
“This is a great opportunity for the Danos Group to be involved in partnering with a charity that gives young professionals great equal opportunities and allows them to fulfil their potential.”
This is the start of a great partnership between the Danos Group and LTSB, a demonstration of how organisations in collaboration can join their experiences and expertise to benefit others.
“We feel truly honoured to have been chosen as a Charity Partner for the Danos Group, who have shown such interest and commitment to helping us achieve our Vision. We connect young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to meaningful careers and wider professional experiences and with the help of the Danos Group we are able to create more of these life changing opportunities. We are inspired by the generosity that the Danos Group has shown to LTSB and are excited about furthering our relationship in the future, which we know will unlock more opportunities for young people to flourish" - Paul Evans, CEO at LTSB.
