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. 


Pro Bono Project 

Harpers has introduced its “Harper 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.”  Said 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

Rosie May - Pro Bono Project 

In May 2019, we recruited for the Rosie May Foundation on a pro-bono basis. We successfully placed a Fundraising & Partnership Manager for the Charity Director free of charge. The Rosie May Foundation is a charity which is close to our heart, our Director Jane, who has since been made a trustee of the organisation says "The Rosie May Foundation is an important charity, which protects and educates vulnerable females in Sri Lanka and Nepal. Having a daughter myself I believe it's important to support women and children who may not be as privileged." 

Over the past twelve years, the Rosie May Foundation has developed from a family-run charity to an international charity with a strategy to help children in crisis, especially girls.

The Rosie May vision - A world in which every child grows up within a safe, nurturing family and has a positive future. 


Christmas Selection Box Collection - Forget-me-Notts

With the help of our generous contacts and clients, we collected an epic 1032 selection boxes for children in or known to the care system. 

We would like to say a HUGE Thank you!! 


Keep a child warm Project

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

The team spent the 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!
