The End of Movember!

Ben reviews his recent ordeal and reveals his new look…

I’m writing this on the 2nd of December, post-mo-shave, after the most challenging month of my life. Even so,  I can safely say that I’m glad I did it. So far I’ve raised £95 for charity (come on, lets make it £100!) and to be honest the mo did start to grow on me…

So as I sit here with a cold and naked top lip, I’d like to thank you for your support and for putting up with me talking nonsense on this grad blog. If you are a prospective applicant, then I hope that it’s given you an insight into the outgoing and non-corporate attitude that is embedded throughout the Specialist & Activity Sector. It truly is a great place to work and I would highly recommmend the grad scheme. Now if you want any more advice then you’re gonna have to donate to Movember:   😉

Anyway, enough corruption. This past week has seen me take my mo to  Birmingham University to judge a large group of students ideas for a social media strategy for Gullivers Sports Travel (one of our sports brands). They found it highly amusing as I tried to keep a straight face and ask them serious questions with a bushy top lip! I also decided to remove my “tickler” (despite the lack of votes) in order to try a different look for the final few days of the month, which was very refreshing. Finally, a kind old friend of mine donated a generous £10, but then asked whether it was for charity or just for my back pocket!

So just to make this clear, I didn’t do this for profit. All the money donated is in aid of testicular & prostate cancer charities. For more info and to donate click here:

On the final day of Movember, it was only right to have a silly photo shoot with a Mo Bro… see the result below.

And finally, here is the timeline of the month:


Thanks for reading and even more thanks for your support.

Mover and out.

    Well done Ben. Most people get sponsored to do fun activities… – you put yourself through a month of having a moustache, which is no mean feat, especially when you’d just started in a new workplace! So well done! I’m very impressed!
