Charity talent search

It’s always a joy to work with people who are committed to working for charity, and I have personally advised numerous charities on their communications and fundraising recruitment campaigns.

I now help clients to devise searching interview questions, and also sit on interview panels to provide an impartial, expert view of the recruitment process.

Nurturing new charity talent

On my blog I combine my 20 years’ experience in communications and head-hunting to help you apply marketing techniques to your charity job search and career development.  I’ve helped people at all levels in the public, corporate and charity sectors to develop their charity careers.

From time to time I’ll be writing posts to help you to:

  • Develop a winning CV to find a new job in your current field, or to move into a new sector.
  • Perform confidently at interview.
  • Build and use your network for career development.
  • Develop your social media footprint using LinkedIn, Twitter and social media sites that you might not know about.
  • Write powerful applications to give you the best chance of getting that interview.
  • Develop great content and design for your interview presentation.
