It's going to be a busy month for fundraising in December!
We've got so many events we thought we'd list them all here:
Thursday 1st - WRS' World Food Day.
We love having new experiences so today we invite everyone to bring in a dish, homemade or shop bought from their culture and share it with the team (for a small donation of course!).
Thursday 8th - WRS' Christmas Jumper Day.
The festive season is approaching fast and there's no better way to get everyone excited than seeing lots of Christmas jumpers in the office. It's also another chance to collect donations!
Wednesday 14th - WRS' Christmas Bake Off.
We thought we'd start Christmas eating early, with our company bake off. And why not, when it means we can raise more money for our chosen charity.

My name is Richard, and my journey at WRS has been nothing short of amazing. I began as a trainee recruitment consultant in November, and with the ongoing support of WRS and the incredible oil and gas team, I successfully passed probation in February, earning the title of recruitment consultant. Since then, I've been on an exhilarating path toward becoming the Expat/Client Liaison Manager for the highly anticipated EACOP project in Dar es Salaam. This is an exciting project to be a part of, an opportunity to broaden my experience and develop my skills in a new environment. The prospect of this new role fills me with excitement and anticipation. It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase my skills and contribute to this groundbreaking project. As I prepare to mobilise to Tanzania at the end of September, I'm filled with a mix of nervousness and eagerness. It's the start of a new chapter in my life, one that promises adventure and growth. I'm grateful for the trust and support WRS has placed in me, and I'm determined to make the most of this exciting journey ahead.Richard Goodwin-Robertson Expat/Client Liaison Manager
I am thrilled to announce my transition to the Learning and Development (L&D) team at WRS after initially joining on the Oil and Gas recruitment team. Throughout my career in recruitment, a total of 17 years, I have gained a deep understanding of the industry's dynamics and stayed up to date with the latest trends and best practices. I have worked in many industries including education, social care, nursing and now energy. My hands-on experience has equipped me with the ability to identify exceptional candidates and comprehend the skills and qualities necessary for success in various roles. Now, as a member of the L&D team, I am excited to share this valuable insight with new recruits joining WRS, providing them with the necessary tools and knowledge to thrive in the recruitment field. In addition to my role in L&D, I am honoured to be entrusted with the responsibility of managing WRS's internal recruitment processes. Building upon my extensive background in recruitment, I will implement effective strategies to attract and hire the most talented individuals who will contribute to WRS's growth and success. By conducting thorough assessments and facilitating seamless onboarding experiences, I aim to shape our workforce in alignment with WRS's organisational objectives while fostering a culture of excellence. I am confident that my unique combination of recruitment expertise and passion for teaching will have a positive impact on WRS's growth. By nurturing talent and sharing my industry knowledge, I will empower new recruits to excel and make meaningful contributions to our organisation. Together with the L&D team at WRS, I am excited to create a stronger, more skilled workforce and achieve new milestones as we progress toward success.Sarah Doyle Associate CIPD 5 Learning & Development Coach

Since joining WRS straight out of University in July 2021, I made the move from Teesside to Manchester to become a part of the Oil and Gas recruitment team as a Trainee Consultant. Working alongside the experienced consultants in the team has been incredibly beneficial, as they provided me with valuable training and industry insights. Thanks to their support, I successfully placed my first job and have since flourished in European recruitment. One aspect I truly appreciate about my journey at WRS is the level of trust and freedom I've been given in my role. This trust in my abilities allowed me to transition into Business Development after just 18 months. I've now been in this role for 8 months and I must say, I absolutely love it. What makes it even better is the clear progression plan laid out for me, providing exciting opportunities to grow our core business and even travel across Europe for client meetings. I feel incredibly fortunate to be in a position where I can take on new challenges and explore exciting opportunities. The support and encouragement from WRS have been instrumental in my personal and professional growth over the past 2 years. I am genuinely excited about what the future holds, watch this space.Lee Hall Business Development Consultant
It was a pleasure to work through WRS as an agency, hassle-free. Money was on time, always responsive to emails, and also periodic communication to confirm if there was anything needed from the consultant. This included check-ins on how the project was going.Compared to other agencies I have worked through, WRS is by far the best and a breath of fresh air.All the best for the future and once again pass my thanks on to all the team.Kevin Durrant Contractor
For two years now I've had business relations with WRS and my experience is more than positive.Helping me from the first contact, guiding me through the employment process, and assisting me during my working period. Always willing to help, with a positive attitude, alerting me to any kind of possible changes or trouble related to my employment.I've never experienced any problems or delays with my salary, receiving messages promptly about schedule changes or other. WRS's people regularly contacted me to ask about my work and possible troubles and offer assistance of any kind with my employer. I liked best the positive approach and readiness to help.In my long engineering career, I have been working in many countries, directly employed or working as a contractor over different agencies, having good or not-so-good experiences.But what sets WRS apart from all others is more than professional relations. I've never experienced such a caring and willing to help relation and this is why I wish to continue with WRS for future opportunities.Cvjetko Bokarica, MScEE
