Piper Maddox and LHi are proud to be a founding pioneer of Opera Youth Foundation, the first recruitment industry-wide charitable foundation created to address youth unemployment. Opera works with The Princes Trust to help young, disadvantaged people into employment.

Piper Maddox have invested largely into the start-up of Opera and, our CEO Tom, who sits on the board of Directors is extremely passionate about the cause and using our industry knowledge and connections to help those who most need it.

This has been an exciting partnership for Piper Maddox, with all our staff engaged with the charity and with the flexibility to support Opera in many different ways, our people are really committed to the work we are doing with them.

We have pledged to fundraise over £100k for Opera.

Throughout the year we have organised and participated in a number of events run by 'LHi Team Opera', ranging from eating challenges, to park runs, to our biggest challenge... our CEO Tom leading an LHi team in the Ironman challenge in Barcelona in 2018. Fourteen of our bravest men and women took part in this incredible challenge consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile cycle and a 26.22 mile run!
