TPP Recruitment Volunteering

TPP Volunteering

We enjoy supporting the sector we work with and believe this gives us an empathy which is reflected in our commitment of service to both our candidates and clients. Many people within TPP like to support charities in their spare time and as part of our TPP Giving Back programme, they receive paid leave for volunteering.

If you are looking for volunteers for an event or project, please email info@tpp.co.uk


2020

Goods for Good UK is a small registered charity which is making a big impact supplying vital toiletries, hygiene essentials and food items to NHS staff, food banks, asylum seekers, refugees, vulnerable families and the homeless during the COVID-19 crisis.

Hannah Strauss has been helping with their social media, trying to raise awareness for the wonderful charity and supporting them to raise the funding needed to make it all happen. She has set up a small group of social media champions who are all young people, keen to spend some time volunteering and trying to make an impact. Together, they have come up with some great social media campaigns and helped raise significant funds as part of their crowdfunding campaign, enabling them to reach more vulnerable members of our society.

Hannah has also been doing some deliveries of goods to local hospitals around London for the frontline workers.  One of her deliveries was to the Royal Free Hospital with lots of drinks, so that the doctors, nurses and other staff in the hospital can grab a drink without having to worry about going to the shops.

During the COVID-19 lockdown, Diane Duberry has been supporting her GP friend by delivering medication to patients that are isolating, as well as delivering food and medical supplies to her elderly and isolated neighbours.

Our COO, Tracey George, has recently started volunteering as a Mentor with Leaders Plus, a social enterprise dedicated to supporting leaders with babies and young children to progress their careers, therefore making a significant impact on the Gender Pay Gap.

The Leaders Plus Fellowship is a multi award-winning nine-month intervention, designed to help talented individuals stay in the leadership pipeline and continue to develop their careers while enjoying their young families.

The Fellowship offers access to a cross sector peer network, career acceleration workshops rooted in research about career progression, senior leader mentors, workshops with key supporters (e.g. their line manager and their partner if applicable) and support to drive change within their organisation. The aim is to support individuals to progress in their careers and build a positive movement for change so that new parents can thrive in leadership roles.

Tracey will be supporting this programme by mentoring a carefully matched Fellow over a nine-month period, which she is confident will be both rewarding and developmental for both parties.

Glen Manners, volunteers as a Shipmate for The Hackney Pirates

Based in Dalston, they provide kids in the local community with creative learning projects, in an after school set up, to develop both their literacy and boost their confidence.

Pairing one volunteer (or "Shipmate" with one child "Pirate"), ensures a productive and unique learning arc for the pirate. In just two sessions we have read books, brain-stormed lyrics for an anti-global warming song and even paid a visit to Dalston Recording Studios, where the pirates recorded their lyrics for a song.

Having now volunteered through TPP's Giving Back programme over the last five years, in such diverse areas, such as a drugs and alcohol rehab-unit within a prison, one to one engagement with the elderly, employability coaching with the homeless and now working with these great kids, I feel immensely proud to be part of such an innovative programme. 

TPP have provided me with a volunteering platform that is both rewarding, fun and key for my own personal development.
