12 Wishes Campaign – Cammach Recruitment Helping the local community

Within Cammach Recruitment we are all very aware of how lucky we are to be surrounded with good friends, family and working in a job we enjoy. 12 wishes is our way of directly helping others who are not so fortunate.

We hope that a small act of kindness can make their wish come true.

If you would like to nominate someone who could do with a bit of help, please contact us on 01224 894444 and we will do our best. Or if you are a local business that would like to offer a small gesture, we would be delighted to hear from you.

We are delighted to partner with the 2018 Year of Engineering  campaign. A career in engineering is exciting, rewarding and creative. Yet there is a big shortage of young people that think it could be a job for them. Over the course of 2018, this campaign aims to shake-up people’s ideas about engineering, inspiring the next generation of innovators, inventors and problem solvers by showing them what engineers actually do. Cammach Recruitment as part of our 12 wishes campaign have visited 4 academies to date this year and plan to visit more. For more information or to arrange a visit please call Donna Liddle on 01224 894444. #InspireAnEngineer
