CSR

CSR

As a Firm we made the decision in 2015 to change our approach to fundraising after consulting with our staff. Instead of appointing a ‘Charity of the Year’; we recognise that our staff all have personal reasons for supporting their favourite charities. This has allowed BHP to support those charities which our staff care passionately about and this has proved successful – in 2017 we raised over £27,000.

In 2018, staff at BHP have raised over £31,000 for various local charities with events such as dress down days, bake sales, and the Mistress Cutler’s Challenge as well as volunteering their time. We are really proud of their achievements over the year.

Giving back to the charity sector.

Trustee training seminars – As part of our commitment to the charity sector, we have trained over 450 trustees over the last three years with our free of charge trustee training seminars. These seminars cover the financial and governance responsibilities of trustees as well as providing a network for trustees to share information with others and develop new insights into the running of charities.

Charity Conference

Our free charity conference is now in its eleventh year and provides updates on a variety of current issues affecting the sector as well as invaluable networking opportunities. The conference is presented by internal presenters and external speakers who are specialists in their field. In 2018, we welcomed 105 delegates from charities across the North of England to the conference in Doncaster. Click here to view a short highlights video about the day.

A welcome addition

We support, develop and inspire our people so that they are able to realise their true potential.

What our staff say about us

I started at BHP as a trainee in late 2008. Initially I didn’t understand why everyone (both at BHP and other companies) kept telling me that BHP was different to other firms. However, it wasn’t long until I realised. Whilst it may sound like a cliché, BHP is like a family, not because my colleagues are welcoming (which they are), but because you get the support you need with every aspect of your career and also non-career related.

Mark Trevenna

Senior Manager - Trusts

The encouragement and support provided to me by BHP whilst studying for the ACA qualification was instrumental in my exam success. Staff at all levels shared their advice and experiences to aid me in the process, assisting with both the technical and emotional stresses.

However, more important to me personally, was the recognition I was given for the work I produce in my role as an employee, and the fact that even when my exam progress was behind the expected pace, this did not impact on my development within the organisation.

Mark Crisp

Senior Accountant

I chose to work at BHP because I could see that it has such a warm and welcoming environment. Starting a new job can make you feel very nervous but everyone has been very welcoming in my first few weeks which made it easy to settle in.

In the future, I would like to achieve my potential and I believe this is possible at BHP because they encourage internal progression which is crucial for your development. After speaking to people here I know I made the correct decision to join this ambitious firm.
