How you can support a vital part of the UK building and construction industry

The new charity initiative from Pinnacle Consulting helps building and construction industry charities each time one of our candidates is successfully placed at one of our clients. This means that you are giving something back to the industry when you recruit or are recruited.

The scheme is designed to provide long-term support and awareness of the charities’ good work. One of our chosen partners is Lighthouse Club.

Established in 1956, Lighthouse Club, the construction industry charity, gives financial help to construction workers’ families, plunged into financial crisis when they lose their breadwinner’s income through illness, injury or death. 

Why you should support Lighthouse Club?
Construction workers and builders are a vital cog of our whole industry: infrastructure, commercial and house-building. They are the people who install and erect the building and construction products that you either manufacture, promote, sell or distribute -  without them the whole industry would come to a halt. They are also often the people who somewhere down the line can influence brand selection, help to improve design and provide vital feedback on products and their ease of installation or construction. They put their faith and life in your products and that faith needs to be repaid.

Bill Hill, chief executive of Lighthouse Club, said: “We are delighted that Pinnacle Consulting has chosen the Lighthouse Club as one of their charity partners. The funds raised by this programme will make a profound difference to the individuals and families within the construction and building industry that we support. It is initiatives like this that demonstrate that our industry has a “big heart” and cares for its people."

The 'Helping others when you recruit' initiative is very simple: when a vacancy is filled, a donation is made by Pinnacle to the preferred charity of the employer and the employer is also given the opportunity to donate - this means that all parts of the industry are brought together to aid one common cause. 

Managing director of Pinnacle Consulting, Steve Rogan, commented: "It is vital the building industry recognises that to succeed, everyone has a key role to play. It is also important the industry uses its knowledge and expertise to support those less fortunate than ourselves. This is the basis on which we have carefully selected our two beneficiaries - their causes should be close to our clients’ hearts and they are something they can be actively involved with too.”

Our other charity partner is CRASH.
