Find out what the director of an award-winning recruitment agency in Norfolk has been doing to support the local community during the coronavirus outbreak.
As the coronavirus outbreak continues to sweep across the region, people have been going out of their way to support those in need.
Whether that involves everyday tasks like checking in on an elderly neighbour or more life-changing actions such as those who have returned or volunteered to support the NHS, contributions both big and small have been making a noticeable impact. Over the last couple of weeks social media feeds have come to life with stories of local people doing all they can to support their communities.
Kelly Cartwright, managing director of award-winning construction recruitment agency Jark Norfolk, and branch manager Astral Chapman, have been engaged in a wide range of different activities in their efforts to help – from providing direct support to key workers on the front lines to assisting on building sites to ensure that it’s ‘business as usual’ for some of their key clients in the construction sector.
“Astral and I have been delivering food to local key workers who are unable to get groceries due to their commitment,” Kelly explains.

“We feel at this time we need to support our local community to get through this difficult period.
“We help and support people daily in our ‘usual’ job of recruitment, so it is in our nature. I think it is important to step up and help where we can – we are all experiencing a very unsettling time, so we all just need to stick together through this.”
