The latest thinking, news and events from the world of Recruitment

New Jobs Mean New Trees


Walmsley Wilkinson Associates, a Ribble Valley, Lancashire based recruitment business which specialises in management appointments across the UK & Europe, is a committed supporter of The Woodland Trust. Each time the business places a candidate with one of its clients, a donation is made for the planting of trees and woodland conservation.

Linda Walmsley, Director of Walmsley Wilkinson said “both myself and my Co-Director, Taryn Wilkinson have personal memberships in the Woodland Trust and we are passionate about protecting both our woodlands and the trees in our urban streets. We therefore decided that our business should also support this very worthy charity and what better way to do this than by donating, each time we assist a candidate to secure their next career opportunity.”

Linda goes on to state that

“we are fortunate to be based in a rural location, with stunning views from our office of the surrounding countryside, we look out upon trees and it just seemed so fitting that we should link new careers with new trees. We also forward Good Luck cards to our candidates which explain that their success in a new role means the planting of a new sapling. People tell us that it’s a thought-provoking act when they are contemplating their start and subsequent growth in their next appointment. The Woodland Trust undertakes excellent work and we wish them all the best with its ambitious plans to plant 64 million trees over the next 10 years”
