Testimonials

“This was the first time I’d partnered with an executive search company to secure a new role and it made such a positive difference to my recruitment experience. Louise was very supportive every step of the way and made herself readily available to answer all of my many questions. As a result, I have no doubt Louise helped bring out my full potential, especially during the final stages where I had the best interviews of my career to date. I have no hesitation in recommending NGO Recruitment to my colleagues and wider networks. Thank you Louise.”


Melissa Warner, incoming CEO, Queensland Positive People
"We urgently needed a temp to hit the ground running during a really large appeal and NGO Recruitment didn’t disappoint. Our consultant was extremely quick to respond, meeting and interviewing the team requiring a temp in person, and we were very happy with the result. The temp service NGO Recruitment provides is both efficient and seamless. I would definitely recommend NGO Recruitment’s expertise to other charities looking for temp support."


Amber Maxwell, Fundraising Manager, Royal Flying Doctor Service
"Natalie provided a great service and successfully found us a fantastic candidate to fill our urgent vacancy for a unique role. Natalie was very responsive and a pleasure to work with."


Sarah Brugler, Legal Counsel at Trust for Nature
“WWF Singapore used NGO recruitment for a number of key roles in our fundraising team, including Head of Individual Giving, Database Manager and Head of Philanthropy, as well as a Specialist Global Palm Oil Expert role. WWF SG is embarking on an ambitious growth strategy so having the right talent on board is absolutely critical, but our existing HR team had limited fundraising candidate networks or the time. I would recommend NGO recruitment for anyone interested in hiring good fundraising talent.”


Luke Heffernan, Director of Marketing and Fundraising, WWF Singapore
"I found our consultant at NGO Recruitment easy to talk to and really listened to my recruitment needs. NGO were very professional and quick to deliver a strong selection of potential candidates. They really care about getting it right."


Samantha Jackson, National Community Fundraising & Volunteer Manager, Cure Brain Cancer
“NGO Recruitment brings a lot of wisdom, value and strength to our recruitment with their focus on the not-for-profit sector and the way they engage and communicate throughout the recruitment process. Their coaching, feedback and personal approach with candidates is extremely helpful. The team exceeds expectations and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”


Steven Smith, Territorial Director of Strategic Change, The Salvation Army
"When we engaged NGO Recruitment to help search for a new CEO, we were aware of the challenges of scoping across a relatively small niche of potential applicants. But the team’s creative and positive approach to the recruitment process ultimately produced a great outcome. Our consultant constructed a thorough candidate profile which she adhered to during the entire search process. This also allowed her to investigate and present candidates with considerable skills but who were not necessarily fully aligned with the position. I genuinely appreciated the excellent level of interaction and communication NGO Recruitment provided throughout the recruitment process and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them."


Madeleine Faught, Interim Acting CEO (and Chair of Rainforest Rescue)

Richard Wylie, Director, Global Fundraising & Brand, Heart Research Institute
"Natalie and NGO Recruitment were absolutely fantastic at finding and securing me a temp role that was parallel to my level of expertise, along with an excellent interview and prepping process, she was available throughout my contract for any questions or issues I needed assistance with. I couldn’t recommend Natalie more highly for any temp work in the sector and would recommend NGO Recruitment as a first point of contact for job seekers or employers. Natalie is very personable and professional, and really did go above and beyond to assist me during the entire duration of my contract. If I seek another role in the future I would contact NGO Recruitment first and foremost due to their expertise, contacts and professionalism in the sector."
