City Group are proud to be based in and operate from Preston in Lancashire. We continuously try to improve the ways in which we contribute directly and indirectly to the general well-being of the community from which we originate.
We carefully monitor our staff population to check that our recruitment and retention policies are ensuring our staff reflects the community in which they work. We actively advertise for jobs using the local press and working within community groups to recruit local people. We offer work experience to young people wanting to get an understanding of the work environment, which spans from one day to one month and actively seek apprentices from the communities they will be working in. Many of our staff are actively involved in community projects often in partnership with our customers, which we support both financially and by offering time off work.
In addition every year in November City Group organise employee donations to the Christmas Shoebox appeal. We donate the travel fare for each box which is donated by our employees and we also collect and deliver the boxes to the appeal.
In 2015 City Group will also be organising two summer charity days which will include the involvement of up to 30 City Group employees. The proceeds of which will be donated to two local charities namely St Catherine’s Hospice and The Space Centre. In addition, the majority of our direct cash donations go to long-term community investment projects although we also make donations in response to local needs.
