Our CSR Efforts
Huxley takes part in a wide range of CSR initiatives and programmes with a vision to transform lives through skills and work. We’re proud of our strong philanthropic history in partnership with our parent company, the SThree Group. This has been developed over the years to strategically align with the Group’s commercial strategy and incorporate our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) expertise.
The central theme for our global CSR activity is employability and aspiration. Our approach best utilises our core recruitment expertise, skills, and networks to help people from underprivileged backgrounds into work. The SThree Foundation further enriches our goal. Launched in 2016, the SThree Foundation supports bright young people from underprivileged and diverse backgrounds into the STEM industries. Learn more by watching our video below.
We encourage all our teams to lead community initiatives and projects in order to cultivate their personal and professional development. In addition to their role everyone has the opportunity to collaborate and engage with CSR. Every SThree employee has two paid days a year to volunteer; they can support positive environmental campaigns and they can get involved in supporting our partner charities.
African Science Academy
Our current global charity partner is the African Science Academy, an organisation that supports females from across Africa to access the education needed to succeed with a career in STEM. SThree colleagues are raising funds needed to transform the lives of young women in Africa who will then use STEM to transform the world. The SThree Foundation match the funds we raise for the African Science Academy alongside providing vital funding to local community STEM projects nominated by SThree employees. Together we can build a brighter future.
To support this cause locally, our Huxley team have volunteered to raise funds through internal raffle, bake sales and JP Morgan challenge just to name a few.
To ensure that we are also contributing to local charities, the team in Australia work with local communities such as Raise to support their Bump programme to help support young mothers. Participants benefit from weekly mentoring sessions and a series of interviewing techniques, role playing and CV writing workshops during school hours in terms 2 and 3. Some even go on to graduate with a TAFE Certificate II in Skills for Work and Training.
