Curve HR Consulting and Curve RPO
We’ve only ever wished for one thing…
At The Curve Group, we’ve only ever wanted to be regarded as the best in the field of HR Professional Services.
In order to achieve our mission, we know that it takes more than great product and services. The difference comes from our people and our culture. A culture that offers everyone the freedom to be themselves within a greater team, autonomy and an understanding of the important part they play in the overall success of the Group.
More than anything, everyone in The Curve Group reflect the same values. We think it’s these values that stand us apart from the crowd. Values that offer our clients a better experience.
We believe that giving something back is important
The Curve Group thrives on new ideas and entrepreneurialism. Ideas are often generated when the different experiences and backgrounds of our team are brought to bear on a particular topic. It is not, therefore, just that we value difference but that difference creates value in our organisation.
We are committed to taking Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) seriously. Aside from the solar panels, lower carbon emissions and car share schemes, the part of our CSR agenda that we would like to share with you and ask for your support on is our charity efforts.
Each year, we run a series of fund-raising events and pledge our support to two charities – one National and one Local and at the end of the year, split all funds raised 50:50 between the two charities.
Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes mission is to deliver a national support network for the wounded and their families. They aim to inspire and enable those who made sacrifices, to reach their full potential. The war may be coming to an end but for those that have suffered, their battle has just begun.
Not only does Help for Heroes aid the brave men and women currently serving for our country, but they also offer an abundance of assistance to those Soldier’s no longer in active service. This struck a cord with us and we jumped at the chance to back an organisation helping others get back into work and make a transition in their lives.
Brain Tumour Research
Brain Tumour Research represents the united campaign voice of the Brain Tumour Research Group of Member charities. Established in 2008 Brain Tumour Research launched specifically to raise funds for brain tumour research and operates as a separate entity. They raise money for the research into the prevention and treatment of brain tumours as well as trying to find a cure. One of their missions is to raise at least £7 million per annum to create seven Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence across the UK.
