Wrexham, April 27, 2015 – The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), the premier post-trade market infrastructure for the global financial services industry, has demonstrated its support of Business in the Community’s “Responsible Business Week 2015” through the execution of two recent, locally-based events to promote career advancement and community service in the Wrexham area.
During the first event, DTCC Wrexham, based on the Redwither Business Park, ran a careers event at Coleg Cambria, aimed at local ‘A’ level students from the college in order to raise awareness of the job opportunities that are available to young people in the local community. More than 200 students attended, all of whom had the opportunity to network with colleagues and representatives from DTCC.
Later that week, 18 employees kicked off the first in a series of community service volunteer days planned throughout the year. Working with Caia Park Partnership, the company’s chosen charity for 2015, staff were able to give their café garden area a makeover, due to the firm providing each employee one paid day a year to volunteer for charity.
Paul Barlow, COO at Avox, a subsidiary of DTCC, said, “We have a strong history of donating to important causes and volunteering in the area. As a responsible business, it is critical we continue supporting actions that help the community in which we work; while making our organisation one that staff can feel genuinely proud they work for.”
Rosie Sweetman, Director of Business in the Community Cymru, said: “Companies from across Wales, and of all sizes, are changing the way business works. They understand that values are more than just words on a page and must truly affect the way a business treats employees, neighbours, customers and suppliers. We have fantastic examples of responsible business in action and we welcome what DTCC Wrexham has done and set out to achieve.”
