Ever since we opened our first office in London in 1986, Computer Futures has always been a strong believer in giving something back to the communities we operate in and to people less fortunate.
We've always taken our role as a global corporate citizens seriously and over recent years have established clear areas of responsibility and targets around Community, Workplace and the Environment.
Not only do our CSR activities benefit local communities, regions and the planet, they also provide rewarding experiences for our employees and provide opportunities for individuals to grow and commit to something that matters to them.
Computer Futures has been heavily involved in giving back and specifically been involved in projects with The Prince's Trust, Mitie Foundation and City Gateway.
Examples of what Computer Futures have been involved in:
This work experience was set up through MITIE's Real Apprentice programme which trains & organises placements for unemployed people. Andy Almond, Partner for UK & Ireland has taken on two apprentices to work in the Manchester office as trainee consultants.
