We are conscious that whilst running a successful hospitality recruitment company here in the UK there are people elsewhere that lack some of the most basic things required to live.
We decided when we launched Rhubarb Recruitment that it would be a good thing to share some of what we have with those living in less fortunate situations.
When you use Rhubarb Recruitment as a supplier for your business you are helping someone somewhere to have a better life. Thank you to all of our Clients for enabling this, without you life wouldn’t be the same.
So since startup in 2001 10% of all our profits have been set aside for this purpose. We started with setting up a monthly financial contribution to MSF doctors without borders which has continued ever since. In addition we have gone on to financially support numerous grass root NGO’s including Shiva Charity which promotes Education in Nepal and Sri Lanka and Tess Unlimited which is a charity working in Central and South America with a focus on facilitating reparative surgery for children with cleft lip; you must check out some of their stories below, they are just amazing.

A few words from Tess: “My name is Tessa de Goede de Ordoñez. In 2008, I first discovered the beauty of South America. Not only because of its spectacular nature, but also because of the work I was doing as a volunteer. I began by caring for handicapped children in Peru and ended up as an English teacher in Ecuador. Eventually, I lost my heart to Guatemala. I perfected my Spanish and started working in a local public school and in the hospital with babies born with cleft lip and palate. This paved the way for other projects and ideas and led to the foundation of Tess Unlimited. I have lived in Guatemala ever since, and I am fortunate to be able to work here with a fantastic team!”
