Our commitment to giving back
At Moneycorp, we believe in doing more.
We recognise our responsibility to the communities in which we operate and our charity work underpins our ESG policies and frameworks to ensure it reflects the expanding global nature of the business. Our key central themes are
- Tackling Homelessness
- Environmental Stability
- Female Empowerment
We are also dedicated to encouraging and supporting the causes close to our employees' hearts. Over the last year, our brilliant people have raised thousands of pounds, run hundreds of miles, and committed hours to volunteering and coaching to support our partners. We're looking forward to supporting our people in their continued efforts in the coming months and years.
Teaming up with The Passage
The London team joined our charity partner, The Passage, to help prepare hot meals for those in need and collected donations from commuters in December. The Passage is a homelessness charity whose mission is to prevent and end street homelessness and is based in Victoria. Our partnership started at the end of 2022 and we’re committed to raising donations and offering more practical support. We’re proud to help them make a difference in our local community.
Delivering career coaching with Future Frontiers
The Moneycorp team partnered with educational inequality charity Future Frontiers for the third year this year to deliver a coaching programme for students from Claremont High School Academy Trust in Harrow. The initiative supported nineteen Year 10 students in building the critical foundations necessary for better school engagement and progress into high-quality education or training after their GCSEs.
Celebrating Women's History Month
Moneycorp held an online event to celebrate Women's History Month this year. The panel discussion was hosted by our UK CEO, Marianne Gilmore, who was joined by Sara Weller CBE, Chair designate of Money and Pensions Service, and Non-executive Director of BT Group plc, and Virgin Money plc, Julia Duthie, author and partner at PEPCO, and Balshen Izzet, Director of Communications at the British Chamber of Commerce to discuss Female Empowerment in the workplace. As one of our key areas of focus, supporting Female Empowerment is integral part of our business objectives. The event also saw the launch of Moneycorp’s Women’s Mentoring Programme which will pilot in London before being rolled out to other regions.
A history of London Marathon runners
Moneycorp has a long history of runners representing us at the London Marathon. We've got behind employees supporting various charities for many year, from sport and development charity, Sported, to mental health charity, Mind.
This year Senior Account Manager Max Huseyin and Chief Risk and Compliance Officer for Moneycorp Bank Oliver Greenslade, will be running alongside a long standing friend of Moneycorp, Sara Weller CBE, as she takes on the London Marathon in her wheelchair. Sara is raising money for MS Must Stop, a campaign she founded after her own Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis. MS is incurable and largely untreatable, and MS Must Stop funds vital research through the MS Society to give more hope and certainty to those living with the disease in the future.
Digital Marketing Executive, Michael Gardner, will also be running in aid of Bliss, a charity that supports the parents and families of babies born prematurely or sick. Michael is the third in a long line of Gardners to run the London Marathon in aid of the charity, following his father and brother.
