With the help of the people who work for us, we have supported some great causes close to our heart.
Here come the girls - Commsworld are delighted to be continuing our youth funding in the local community with Blackburn United ladies receiving funding for their new shirts. Good luck for the season ahead!
Continuing on with our sponsorship of the first team Commsworld are also now providing funding to the minis.
This contribution from Commsworld will help to fund coaching and refereeing for all the junior sides as providing kit from P1-P7 and S1-S4; and help to set-up their acadamy which aims to focus on developing a club culture from the way they play their social acitivities to providing a strong focus on social responsibility through access to quality rugby coaching for all children across their community and schools.
Commsworld recognises the contribution our staff plays in our success and as such we fully endorse the Scottish Governments Living Wage Campaign to deliver a living wage as a minimum commitment for our employees. We are firmly of the view that employers should reward their staff fairly and would encourage businesses throughout the country to support the living wage campaign.
The Real Living Wage is now £8.45 and Commsworld will continue to support the programme. The number of living wage employers has grown substantially in Scotland over the last few years; when Commsworld was first accredited there was only 60 employers that number has now reached 800 which is absolutely fantastic.
Commsworld entered into a sponsorship agreement to support the club’s Scottish Rugby Premiership campaign. The agreement, worth a four figure sum, sees the company’s logo adorn the Edinburgh side’s shorts and stadium advertising at Meggetland. We hope our support will help the club to continue to push the boundaries of what it can achieve.
Ricky Nicol, our CEO, has been an active supporter of Cre8te, an independent local enterprise agency and social enterprise, which aims to build strong, sustainable communities in regeneration areas of Edinburgh and across Scotland. It helps residents and businesses to maximise their potential and contribute to their local economy.
