After the success of our first grant initiative, TPP Recruitment offered another opportunity for non-profit organisations to apply for our second round of grants. This time we offered 2 grants, one for a paid employee role and another for a Trustee role.
The winners would be gifted with support in the form of a financial grant, up to the value of £5,000, to spend on a new, exclusive recruitment campaign, free attendance to three specialist webinars by ED&I experts, Inclusive Employers, and receive support and guidance from TPP’s experienced, specialist account management team who would advise on adopting inclusive recruitment processes that will transform their approach to attracting the most diverse talent in the future.
We were once again encouraged by the number and quality of applications we received and after another difficult selection process we are pleased to announce our winners below.
Winner of our Altogether Better Inclusive Recruitment Grant:
The Jo Cox Foundation
"There was strong evidence that The Jo Cox Foundation would value external support and welcome a critical friend. A desire to develop sustainable inclusion practices & play an active part in improving diversity in the charity sector, made this application stand out." – TPP Recruitment
"The Jo Cox Foundation demonstrated a real push towards education and aligning their D&I actions to their ethos. Their application showed a depth of understanding and commitment towards addressing issues in a way that also mitigates bias." – Inclusive Employers
“We're thrilled to have been awarded the TPP Altogether Better Inclusive Recruitment grant. At The Jo Cox Foundation, we understand that we're on a journey towards becoming a truly inclusive employer, and this grant will help us to take the next steps.” – The Jo Cox Foundation
Winner of our first Altogether Better Trustee Inclusive Recruitment Grant:
“Possible presented strong evidence of being focussed on tangible outcomes which have clearly already been impactful internally but also a willingness to share and support other organisations at the same time. Very worthy winners!” – TPP Recruitment
"Possible demonstrated the importance of linking the diversity of the board with their cause and a willingness and commitment to learn, adapt and evolve. Their tenacity and passion was a driving force in their application. " – Inclusive Employers
“We're excited to grow and improve our organisation so that we are more diverse and inclusive as this is really important to us. Climate change will affect everyone, so it's especially important for us to not only speak to a wide range of people but for our work to be shaped by voices from all backgrounds." – Possible
Congratulations to both winners! We look forward to working with you on your respective campaigns and supporting you on your ED&I journey.
Thank you to Inclusive Employers for your valuable feedback on this initiative and expert support with our selection process. This is what Inclusive Employers has said about TPP’s Altogether Better Grant:
“In line with the feedback we gave last year, as TPP’s Account Manager, I am thrilled to share that TPP’s commitment towards D&I and innovation is inspiring. TPP are leading the way within the recruitment industry. As I have been working closely with them on their Altogether Better D&I Grant, I can vouch that the process is thorough, fair and inclusive. The work that TPP do and the benefits of this grant to the winning organisations will be priceless. All organisations are somewhere on their D&I journey, which we all know can be a challenging one, so sharing your challenges and barriers are important. TPP are passionate about representation and equity and the process of the Altogether Better Grant is a testament to the work they’ve done to get to where they are.”
