Recruitment Agency Eursap Signs up to Support The National Forest

Tuesday, 6th October 2015

The National Forest Company is delighted to announce a new partnership with IT recruitment agency, Eursap.

The agency specialises in recruiting experts within the SAP software field, and was keen to celebrate their growing Europe-wide business by working with the National Forest Company (NFC) to support the creation of The National Forest.

As part of its CSR policy, Eursap has pledged to plant a tree in The National Forest for every SAP Consultant that they successfully place. The National Forest spans 200 square miles of the Midlands (covering parts of Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire) and where once there was a predominantly industrial landscape of former coalfields, now, tree by tree and woodland by woodland, a vast new forest is growing.

As part of their long-term partnership with The National Forest, Eursap will be planting one hectare of new forest (2000 new trees) this year at a new woodland site at Nanpantan, in the Leicestershire part of the Forest. The creation of groves and woodland areas throughout this site will form a mosaic of habitats including woodland, parkland, grassland and wild flower meadow, greatly enhancing the site’s value for wildlife.

Joan Ellen, Managing Director of Eursap, said: “Eursap is an ethical company with a great respect for the environment; we take pride and pleasure in our partnership with the National Forest Company. In supporting the creation of The National Forest, we are playing an active part in sustainability and making a real contribution towards the environment, not only in the short term, but also for future generations. As our company continues to grow, so will our contribution and efforts towards becoming the leading environmentally-responsible IT recruitment agency.”

Lynne Richards, Head of Fundraising for the NFC, said: “Eursap joins us at an exciting time for The National Forest, which celebrates its 25th anniversary next year. Our corporate supporters are invaluable to our work, as we take forward the creation of the Forest: planting the trees, managing the growing woodlands and developing our role as a research hub and centre of excellence. We are delighted to work with Eursap and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship in the years to come.”
