Corporate Social Responsibility

Here at Harpers, we believe in giving back to the community. Over the years, we have raised money and volunteered our time for charities in the East Midlands area as well as supporting local not-for-profit businesses. 

Our responsibilities fall into the following roles:

  • Supporting local charities and not-for-profit organisations
  • Offering pro-bono recruitment solutions
  • Taking care of our clients, candidates and staff
  • Investing in the local economy

We were thrilled to have been shortlisted for the prestigious 2023 East Midlands Business Masters Awards; shortlisted for the Community Impact category, this recognition is a testament to Jane's unwavering commitment to the community and the East Midlands.

Cost of Living Relief

In 2024, we set up a drop-off point for Forget-Me-Notts' Cost of Living Relief initiative in our Nottingham City Centre. 

Forget-Me-Notts is a UK-based project whose purpose is to empower local people and local businesses to support their social care system in meeting the practical emergency needs of the most vulnerable children in their local community, letting each child know they are not forgotten. 

Visit our blog to find out more about the project and how you can help.


Forget-Me-Notts Christmas and Easter Collections

Every Christmas and Easter we are proud to support Operation Orphan with their Selection Box and Easter egg collections. We've supported them for many years, and for very good reason! The donations are distributed to children in the care system across the East Midlands and for some, it will be the only gift they receive.

Pro Bono Project 

Harpers has introduced its Pro Bono project, which sees the Harper Recruitment Group offer a free of charge recruitment service to a regional charity or not-for-profit organisation. "With a long history of supporting well deserving local and regional organisations, Harpers has always wanted to make sure we are giving back to the community," said Jane Harper, Managing Director. "It’s always been very important to me personally and the team are equally as driven to ensure that we all do our part to help those less fortunate. We will make sure that we are always carrying at least one Pro Bono project and I’d love to hear from any organisations that feel we could be of help", aid Jane. "We are so pleased to be currently assisting Operation Orphan based in Chilwell, who improve the quality of life for orphans and vulnerable children. They are a fantastic charity doing some amazing work. Some of our team members have volunteered their time to help out at their distribution centre, and we are currently undertaking an assignment to assist with recruiting a management team member." For more information on Operation Orphan go to

Keep a Child Warm Project

As part of our pro bono project, our team regularly lends a helping hand at Operation Orphan HQ. 

We recently spent a day sorting and packing warm clothing as part of their Keep a Child Warm project. The aim of the project is to collect as many good quality warm winter coats as possible and pack these, together with gloves, scarves, hats and socks and a blanket. These packs are then given out in the most desperately needy villages where children live in -30 degrees with no central heating, no coats and no indoor toilet!
