At Robert Half, we believe being a positive force in our local communities helps us attract the best employees, build closer relationships with clients and reinforce our reputation for putting Ethics First in all of our activities. But ultimately, the best reason may be that it's simply the right thing to do.
Robert Half is proud to partner with Macmillan as our official charity for 2016-2018. We will be supporting Macmillan Cancer Support through local and national fundraising initiatives and raising awareness amongst our staff.
“We are proud to be supporting Macmillan Cancer Support in their mission to ensure that no one faces cancer alone. Not only does working with Macmillan Cancer Support mean that we will be raising important funds, it is also a chance for us to raise awareness of the ripple effect on family, friends, colleague and beyond,” commented Phil Sheridan, senior managing director, Robert Half UK.
"Our teams are working to reach our fundraising goals at every chance we can, including fundraising for charity runs, bake sales and more. We are motivated by the fact that our efforts will be able to support the individuals in our communities.”

"More than 250,000 people applied to take part in the London Marathon this year," Sofia said.
