OptHR works with a local charity Shine A Light Support Services, the charity offers a range of services for families affected by childhood cancer who live in Coventry and Warwickshire. Either having a child diagnosed with Cancer, or to be that child, is a devastating and life-changing experience, which can be isolating and lonely. To feel supported through this rollercoaster journey and to feel part of a community of other families who can support one another and share experiences makes a massive difference. We wish to make sure that none of our families feel alone in their journey.
Rachel Wade, Director of OptHR plays an active role as a Trustee on the charity’s Board of Trustees. And delivers strategic and operational HR solutions to the charity to drive the charity forward in achieving its goals and aims within the community.
OptHR also gets involved in the fundraising and events; most recently the Christmas Fayre and Christmas Party for the families we support.
Young Enterprise is the UK’s leading charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills. We make the connection between school and the world of work, enabling young people to develop the knowledge and attitudes they need to succeed.
Our volunteers are a vital part of Young Enterprise – they mentor young people, assist delivering our programmes in school or are part of the local volunteer boards that help Young Enterprise across the country.
Rachel Wade, Director of OptHR volunteers as a Business Advisor and supports a team of 15 students aged 15 – 19 years old for schools within Rugby. The Students trade as a company and compete in a Nationwide competition.
Rachel’s role as a Business Advisor is to act as a mentor to the members of the company by encouraging and supporting the company members. From time to time it may be necessary to instil a sense of urgency, raise morale, engender team spirit, and be a catalyst or play “devil’s advocate.” Acting as a source of knowledge, a motivator and consultant. Along with being a role model for the students.
