Putting the fun into fundraising

Life at KR Group involves hard work, but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable. Quite the contrary!

We’re really pleased to announce that KR Group's chosen charity for 2017 is Mind, the mental health charity.

Last year, as a Group, we raised £19,302.22 for Dementia UK and we’d like to raise just as much, if not more, for Mind this year. So far, we have £11,138.35 in the pot - let's see what the second half of the year will bring!

Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling.

Mind believe no-one should have to face a mental health problem alone. They’ll listen, give you support and advice, and fight your corner. To find out more, visit http://www.mind.org.uk/.

If you would like to help us with our fundraising efforts please donate via Just Giving http://www.justgiving.com/KR-Group2017.

For Recruiters

The in-house team at KR Group know the precise type of person that would flourish in the business, as such we won’t consider / read speculative or unsolicited CVs from agencies to any KR Group employee.

When we need to draw upon our external recruitment partners we will only use suppliers who have signed up to our preferred supplier list. Only our selected recruitment partners will earn a fee where we have instructed them directly within a specific remit.

If the above is not observed KR Group reserves the right to contact submitted candidates directly and initiate discussions without payment of any agency fee.

If you chance your arm and submit unsolicited CVs and proposals to KR Group, all of the above will apply.
