RECRUITMENT specialist Office Angels has planted thousands of trees in the Scottish Highlands this year as part of a Findhorn-based charity's rewilding programme.

In just a few months, the company has smashed its original target of planting 2021 trees by the end of 2021 in a collaboration with Trees For Life.

The firm started its campaign by planting a tree for every employee while pledging to plant a tree for every person placed in a job and every client who hires a candidate going forward.

In a bid to grow their sustainability business model, as well as create a lasting legacy for the next generation, Office Angels leaders decided to look at a new way of celebrating success with their clients and candidates a like.

Kate Garbett, head of Office Angels, said: "We are a people-first company and, as such, our focus has always been on creating a place of work we can all be proud to be part of.

"We are delighted to be partnering with Trees For Life and contributing to the planting of thousands of trees each year, enabling them to rewild a part the Scottish Highlands which will change the shape of the UK for years to come.

"It is an amazing achievement to have already planted over 3000 trees and to know that for every employee, every candidate and every client we have successfully worked with and will work with, a tree stands in their name in our Office Angels forest.

"There is something truly humbling in knowing that long after we are gone, our trees will be fully flourishing."

Office Angels plans to expand its involvement with Trees For Life next year and will be sending volunteer teams to help with the rewilding process as well as continuing with their tree planting.

Catherine Faulkner, corporate partnerships manager at Trees For Life, said: "It's fantastic to see Office Angels engaging so many people with the benefits of rewilding through the creation of an ever-growing 'grove' of trees.

"Collaboration is fundamental to our work and Office Angles' generosity allows us to continue making a positive impact on Scotland's landscape.

"We look forward to welcoming some of the team to the Highlands next year, to show first-hand how tree planting and woodland regeneration can help return a whole cascade of wildlife and biodiversity."
