Movember - How to take part

Each year during the month of November, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on hundreds and thousands of men’s faces around the world. Men grow and women support the moustache for 30 days to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

Construct Recruitment are getting into the spirit of it all and will be giving away heaps of great prizes (including an iPad mini) for the best Mos at the end of the month!


What do you need to do? 
  1. Visit: http://uk.movember.com/team/513269 before November 1st
  2. Click join and register your details (takes 1 minute!)
  3. On November 1st shave it all off – you now have 30 days to create a hairy monster on your face
  4. Throughout the month, actively update your Mo Space or just tag Construct Recruitment on your Mo photos on Facebook
  5. At the end of the month we’ll give away prizes for the best flavour saving lip rugs in the team!

The Rules
  • Once registered each Mo Bro must begin the 1st of November with a clean shaven face
  • For the entire month of Movember, each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache
  • There is to be no joining at the side burn – that is a beard
  • There is to be no joining at the bottom of the chin – that is a goatee
  • A small complimentary growth under the bottom lip (aka a tickler) is allowed
  • Any one can take part - they don't need to work for Construct, so spread the word!


Why men’s health and cancers affecting men?
  • On average, men live 4 years less than women in the UK
  • 1 in 9 men in the UK are likely to face prostate cancer in their lifetime
  • Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in the UK
  • Over 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer ever year
  • 47% of testicular cancer cases occur in men under 35 years

Remember... you have to register here before November 1st to be in with a chance of winning a prize!
