Candour in the community

Not all recruiters are the same

As part of our ongoing endeavours to alter the perception of the recruitment industry, we’re happy to put our money where our mouths are in the form of our unique “pay it forward” promise. We will happily donate 10% of all initial fees with new clients of ours to their favourite worthy cause.

As of early 2023, we have donated over £94,000 to charities & worthy causes.

The Big Walk

In 2021 our Director Stephen Beech & three intrepid volunteers embarked on a walk from London all the way back up North to Altrincham. Setting off on 24th July 2021, the journey took an entire week to complete and the team were joined by 100 friends & associates in Knutsford to walk the final 9 mile leg back to Timperley Sports Club. The team managed to raise an absolutely amazing £31,075.65 for The Lullaby Trust.

CAFTfest Christmas Event

TeamCandour could not think of a better way to spend their last working day of 2022!

We love supporting The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust – it’s a truly magical place for children who have life limiting or severely disabling conditions. The farm experience gives them the time and space to enjoy things they simply would never get the chance to otherwise and create priceless family memories

We all got involved of course! But it was Stephen and Felix who really shined that day dressed as Santa’s little helpers! 🎅

CAFTfest Event

In addition to making regular donations via our “new client incentive”, we were delighted to recently spend the day helping out at the annual CAFTfest event – an annual gathering where over 2000 underprivileged children get to enjoy a weekend of fun and games at the amazing farm. Our own Tom Jones even joined in by dressing as a giant rat 🐀for the day!

Parachuting for Pam

In November of 2020, Pam Dawson attended Wythenshawe Hospital with nothing more than a complaint of stomach pains but investigations unfortunately led to a diagnosis of aggressive small cell lung cancer and secondary bowel cancer. As a friend of the firm, we wanted do something to support the unit entrusted with her care in the form of a charity skydive where the team raised an amazing £2,080.

From Leeds for Lara

In July of 2020, we set off on an 85 mile, 3 day walk from Leeds all the way back to our hometown of Altrincham – dressed as dinosaurs – in memory of Lara Maddocks. The daughter of a very close friend of the firm, she tragically passed away in July 2019 aged just 3 months. Thanks to the generosity of everyone involved, we raised an amazing £12,636 for the Lullaby Trust to aid their support of families going through the same ultimate loss.

BJSS offices


Continuing our unique initiative to donate a percentage of initial fees with new clients to their favourite cause, we donated £1,250 to the amazing Childrens Adventure Farm Trust on behalf of S&G Response to help with the groundbreaking work they undertake on behalf of children who so desperately need it.
