This year, we became a founding pioneer of Opera Youth Foundation, the first recruitment industry-wide charitable foundation created to address youth unemployment.
Opera works with The Princes Trust to help young, disadvantaged people in to employment.
LHi have invested largely in to the start-up of Opera and, Tom, who sits on the board of Directors is extremely passionate about the cause and using our industry knowledge and connections to help those who most need it.
This is an exciting partnership for LHi, all our staff are engaged with the charity and with the flexibility to support Opera in many different ways, our people are really committed to the work we are doing with them.
We have pledged to fundraise over £100k for Opera.
Throughout the year we will be organising and particpating in a number of events run by 'LHi Team Opera', ranging from eating challenges to park runs to our biggest challenge coming later in the year... our CEO Tom will be leading an LHi team in the Ironman challenge in Barcelona in September.
14 of our bravest men and women will be taking on this incredible challenge consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile cycle and a 26.22 mile run!
