Our cross-sector reach

Our sector expertise means we are highly skilled at assessing and recommending ideal candidates from within the NFP sector. We are also highly successful at identifying and transitioning corporate and public sector talent with strong transferrable skills and a fresh perspective into NFP leadership roles. Not everyone is suitable, and assessing values alignment and cultural fit is, as always, of crucial importance.

Our specialist knowledge

Our consultants have expert knowledge of the complex environment in which NFPs operate. We understand the necessity for transparency and accountability to donors, funding bodies, clients and other stakeholders. And we deliver tailored executive search, permanent and temporary recruitment and HR services to match. We are also highly experienced at recruiting for government-funded NFPs and have the procedural expertise to make sure we find you the right talent within this environment.

Our focus on cultural fit

Understanding the importance of cultural fit and making it a priority during our search process is at the heart of our recruitment methodology. After almost two decades of behavioural and cultural assessment, we are uniquely placed to gauge the cultural fit of our candidates as an indicator of long term success within your organisation. As a testament to this, 92% of our placed candidates are still in their role two years post-placement.

Our commitment

We are committed to our clients every step of the way and are honest from the outset about the challenges we may face. As the leading specialists in executive search and difficult to source roles, often with long lead times, we are always 100 per cent focused on finding the right person – and we will not stop until we do.

Our service excellence

Our reputation for service excellence also underpins our longstanding relationships within the NFP sector. We often partner with our clients for the long term and our candidates in turn, often become clients themselves. We focus on going above and beyond in all that we do, and our can-do, results-driven approach is highly valued.

Our focus on diversity

We are committed to diversity and our recruitment processes are free from biases regarding a candidate’s gender, age, race, religion, sexual orientation and other characteristics not relating to job performance. We search through diverse talent pools to provide you with the very best shortlist for every role.
