People tell us that we do things a bit differently from other recruiters
Charity People is an extraordinary company that believes in extraordinary recruitment. We work with a variety of non-profit organisations to help them recruit more effectively, more efficiently, and more inclusively. Having been established in 1990, we have placed over 30,000 people into paid and voluntary roles, with inspirational organisations making real and tangible difference to society, locally, nationally and internationally. We’re not interested in quick wins, instead we’re driven by delivering impactful recruitment , appointments that can genuinely change the world.
Way back in 1990, Charity People started life operating from a south London base, with grants from The Prince’s Youth Business Trust and the London Enterprise Agency. Its aims were – and still are – to promote the sector as a great place to work, to attract the most talented and committed candidates, and to help charities recruit more effectively. A lot has changed in nearly 30 years – our team has grown significantly, we’ve moved offices, got a website and placed over 30,000 people into a new job. Despite all this, our values, aims and principals remain the same.
What sectors do we specialise in?
We operate across the whole of the charity sector, recruiting at all levels from fundraising assistants to CEO. We cover permanent, contract and temporary roles. We don’t believe in over-promising and so in the unlikely event that we don’t think we can help you, we’ll tell you.
How we give back
Charity People are committed to giving back to the sector. We take this incredibly seriously and are always on the look out for new ways in which we can strengthen our input. One way we encourage our team to get involved in the sector and give back is by asking each of our employees to donate three of their working days to a cause they feel strongly about. This time can be taken in a block or split up over the year into small chunks if preferred.
Whether it’s Anna hosting tea parties for the elderly, Pete volunteering at a refugee camp in Calais or Amelia doing another epic run, we’re a team that likes to give back. Every winter we take part in the Better Bankside project, which helps the homeless in the area around our office. If you’ve got a worthy cause, why not get in touch and let’s see how we can get involved.
