UK Mail in the Community
We financially support employees who are involved in personal fundraising initiatives for causes close to their hearts. In 2014/15 we donated £21,000 to a diverse range of charities through our Staff Sponsorship Scheme, helping fund cancer charities, sea rescue, air ambulance, dog’s homes and children’s charities amongst others.
Our commitment to working with Job Centre Plus, to help potential recruits move from welfare to sustained employment continues with the participation in the government Work Experience Programme. The Company has been successful in converting a number of work experience candidates into employed status and continues to actively support this government initiative.
In addition, UK Mail launched ‘Appforthat’ Apprenticeships in 2013. The 'Appforthat' programme aims to help tackle the UK’s youth unemployment challenge by offering entry level opportunities with personal development support required to build a successful career at UK Mail. The programme works in partnership with an external training partner.
