Supporting the Local Community

Many successful businesses feel an obligation to give something back to their local community, especially for those who are in greatest need. We are one of those businesses.

Giving back

How we support the local community

We have enjoyed over 20 very successful years in business thanks to a combination of having great people, working for great Clients and being supported by a great community. 

Many Recruitment Agencies talk of being different, but few truly make a difference and that is what we strive to do through our involvement in a number of local charities and community support groups.

Oxford Children’s Hospital

Oxford Children’s Hospital

Since 2009, Allen Associates has sponsored the OX5 run - an annual event that sees thousands of runners, joggers and walkers from businesses throughout the region taking part to raise money for equipment, specialist nurses and toys and games for children at the hospital.

There are various trophies up for grabs, including the Allen Associates Corporate Cup which is presented each year to the fastest team over the line.

Making a difference

The Ley Community

The Ley Community drug and alcohol project has been one of Allen Associates’ chosen charities for some time. Since being involved with the project, we have seen at first hand the dramatic impact that meaningful employment can have on an individual’s recovery and the businesses that employ them.


Allen Associates are an active member of responsible business group Reciprocate, hosted by Oxfordshire Community Foundation (OCF). This sees the Team participate in a number of charitable and community activities throughout the year, such as promoting work opportunities for young or vulnerable people, raising funds or sharing time and skills with charities.

Aspire Oxford

Aspire is a community enterprise initiative that creates opportunities for those facing barriers preventing them from securing meaningful employment. Their work has transformed the lives of over 1,000 people throughout Oxfordshire, and we partnered with them – along with Reciprocate – to create the Open Recruitment Handbook on open and inclusive recruitment practices.

Why do we do it?

Supporting our local community is both a privilege and a pleasure. It gives us the opportunity to make a real difference to people's lives and in doing so, business becomes a force for good. By working with Allen Associates, you know that you're partnering with a Recruitment Agency that genuinely cares.
