Land Securities Group Plc.

One of our clients, LandSec, are the clever people behind Girls Can Do It Too, an initiative designed to encourage girls to consider a career in construction. Currently, only 11% of the construction workforce are female, and LandSec are attempting to increase this number by providing education and engagement projects and workshops for girls aged 11-13. Featuring workshops on demolition and tower building, as well as challenging the girls to design a planning project of their own (with a focus on budgeting and environmental considerations), LandSec have proven their dedication to addressing the need for diversity in this very male dominated industry. Ruth assists the project by sharing her fascinating insights into the industry and is even on the project judging panel!

Succulents and Seeds.

We love growth, and while our Mattinson Forest continues to grow with every candidate we place, it can be hard to imagine the impact we are having on our environment when it’s not visually accessible. We like to give our candidates and clients a little visual reminder of the wider vision they are now part of. We gift all our candidates and clients with a succulent plant or seed packet to remind them that by nurturing something, be it a talent or a plant, it can grow to become something beautiful and highly useful. By investing your time as a Mattinson candidate you are investing in the good of the wider environment.

So, for every tree we plant in the UK we guarantee a tonne of CO₂ offset in Brazil too.
