Operation Christmas Child is a charity campaign led by the Christian international relief and development charity, Samaritan’s Purse. Set up to provide some joy to children who are victims of war, poverty, famine, disease or natural disaster, OCC calls on individuals and organisations to fill a shoebox with festive goodies and necessities every Christmas. Since its launch in 1990, Operation Christmas Child has delivered shoeboxes to more than 157 million children in 160 countries across the world spanning Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, bringing some light to the darkness for children in need.

What Corecom do

The Corecom team have taken part in Operation Christmas Child since 2018 when one of our staff members had a chance encounter with the campaign.

Since then, the team and our families have rallied around each Christmas to buy an array of necessities and goodies for boys and girls across the globe – from toothpaste and combs to bobbles, pencils, toys and games. Christmas is such a special season and the one time of the year when families come together and celebrate.

We embrace the festive season wholeheartedly at Corecom and recognise how fortunate we are to be able to do this, so the team are grateful for the opportunity to stop and consider how lucky we are and to make a small difference to children less unfortunate than our own.


To date, the Corecom team have collected, wrapped and sent 150 shoeboxes to Operation Christmas Child.

What I wanted from this partnership was to be able to take a step back and free me up to focus on my other responsibilities in addition to recruitment. Working with Corecom alone made everything so straight forward. I wasn’t having to chase up several agencies and there was no duplication of candidates. Tunstall was their no1 focus and I trusted them to deliver, which they did. There was noticeable improvements in CV-to-interview and interview-to-placement ratios which was a real pain point before changing the model on how we worked together. Working on a retained basis gave me confidence that extra effort and resource would be put in to filling the roles.
