photo-39Last week Barclays donated time and expertise to Justlife for a day of budgeting, planning, problem solving, researching and analysing.The team of 16 from Barclays Finance group spent a day with Daniel, James and Alex from Justlife. After short presentations and introductions, the team were set to work on five tasks which included budget planning, organisational growth, researching the total number of households living in B&B accommodation and compiling an archive of research around this area.Daniel Jones, Finance Director at Justlife, said: "The team at Barclays are highly skilled and this was a great opportunity to put their training and abilities to use in a way that gives back to society. Corporate Social Responsibility days often involve painting a community centre or clearing a wasteland... and whilst this is all good work, it is brilliant to be able to harness the talents of the Barclays team to help Justlife.""I want to say a big thank you to the Barclays finance team. Looking at what has been achieved in just one day there has been some brilliant outputs and this will definitely help us to go forward and has saved Justlife hours of work."We would like to thank Barclays for hosting the event at their Radbrooke Hall base in Knutsford, Cheshire and we look forward to the possibility of working with them on projects in the future.
