Alice Wood

Senior Consultant – Marketing, Communications & Digital

Tel: +44 (0) 20 7939 7448E: alice@charitypeople.co.ukLinkedIn

Alice has been recruiting for the Charity sector since 2008 and is motivated by building lasting partnerships with her candidates and clients.  At Charity People she specialises in all things Marketing & Communications and is proud to work with a range of organisations to consistently ensure excellent recruitment which she sees as fundamental to an organisations’ success.  She’s worked with many charity professionals throughout their careers, supporting them into new roles as they develop, a journey she loves being part of.

When she’s not out on adventures with her four-year-old daughter she can be found with her nose in a book; an English Literature graduate, reading has always been something she’s passionate about and she’s now happily introducing her little girl to the magic of literature one Julia Donaldson at a time!

In addition to recruitment and reading, she loves art, film, cooking, music and travel; and has recently discovered the joys of gardening and DIY.  Since becoming a mother she’s also become a coffee connoisseur!

Alice is passionate about supporting the sector in any way she can, be this volunteering at her local homeless shelter over Christmas, fundraising for a range of causes, or offering career advice and mentoring to young people.  Having moved a little way outside of London recently she also has plans for her local area including building a community garden.

"Alice has been fantastic in helping me with my search for a career within the charity sector. It has been a long road as I was transitioning from the commercial sector, but Alice has been incredibly patient and encouraging throughout. Her positive, supportive attitude and interview tips & advice were pivotal to my success in securing a role and I thoroughly recommended her to anyone else looking to make the shift. "

"Alice has simply been excellent during my job search. Finding myself searching for a new position and having been placed by charity people in my previous role I came back to work with them exclusively. I was introduced to Alice who I quickly understood my skill set, experience, and what I was looking for offering advice where applicable due to her knowledge of the market. She was with me each step of the way, giving great advice and encouragement before/after each interview stage and only came to me with suitable roles - even when my criteria changed slightly. I quickly found the right position for me after three weeks and I couldn't be more pleased with my experience. "
