Hillman Saunders are delighted to announce that our dedicated charity partner for 2018 onwards is MIND.

We chose our CSR cause based on two reasons:

Firstly, it’s something that has affected the families of numerous individuals in our team, and as such they care passionately about it away from work.

Secondly, we here at Hillman Saunders passionately believe that there is a huge mental health problem affecting a large number of Insurance professionals in the Financial Services sector, but nowhere near enough being done about it.

To see just some of the stats to back up our viewpoint – and the alarming lack of support that seems to be available – you can read the first blog in our 2018 Me & Mental Health series by clicking here.

You can also read Back Office Support Consultant Matthew Tynan’s poignant blog on his own family member by clicking here.

As a recruitment agency that specialises solely in recruiting Insurance employees in the Financial Services market, Hillman Saunders is unique in talking to Insurance professionals all day every day, about much more than just the nuts and bolts of the task at hand.

Reasons to move, family life, location, workload, work / life balance, management above, direct reports below, flexible working, holidays, benefits, pensions, pressure, expectations, performance, anxiety, financial situation both professionally and personally. And one thing that crops up on a more regular basis than ever before is mental health.
