Neil is one of the most professional recruiters I've had the pleasure of working with. Neil's understanding of the Charity industry is extensive, he uses this knowledge alongside his expertise to communicate proactively, efficiently and directly with his candidates, offering quality advice and relevant opportunities. What is extremely refreshing is that Neil has the interest of both his clients and candidates on equal level which allows for better placements. I've been Neil's candidate and will soon be Neil's client based on my experience.
— Sarah Mohammed, Supporter Care Manager at Mind
I've had an incredibly positive experience working with Zelda. She was meticulous in finding positions she felt would be suited to my skill set and encouraging and helpful ahead of interviews. She is extremely professional, and I will certainly be turning to Zelda when I need the assistance of a recruiter in future.
— Ciara Smith, Team Support Officer at GOAL Global
Anna is a fantastic recruiter. She is upbeat, dynamic, professional, supportive and dedicated to finding the right fit for employer and employee. I highly recommend her; she is a recruiter who cares.
— Richard Molyneux, Membership Operations Manager at BADMINTON England
I have "temped" for well over a decade and it is rare to encounter recruiters who are as efficient, personable and professional as Ben. He is indeed a credit to the Charity People team and I wish him continued professional progression.
— Roseann Ayton, Candidate
Ben provided an A* star service that resulted in my obtaining a coveted placement with a national organization. I would recommend his professional consulting and business skills again and again.
— Nadine Agbed, Communications and Non-Profit
Neil was my recruitment guru while looking for a new role. His attention to detail and his knowledge of the sector is 1st class.
— Allison Spittle, Senior Supporter Services Officer
Neil has been a first class recruitment consultant from the very first phone call onwards.Going into see Neil at Charity People was more like career coaching than recruitment consulting - and that level of service has continued throughout the entire time we've been working together.
— Digital Content Specialist
Neil has a refreshingly personable and motivating approach to recruitment and I would (and have!) highly recommend him to anyone who is considering a career transition or looking for their next growth opportunity.
— Esther Arthur, Development Manager (Global Programme Countries) at Sightsavers
Ben helped me to gain my dream job. I found Ben really helpful, attentive, friendly, professional and responsive. Where most agency contacts I dealt with had poor or virtually no communication after the initial contact they made, Ben was always on hand to advise and update me as I went through the process. What I really liked about Ben and Charity People is that he gave me pre-interview advice and help, taking the time to prepare me beforehand. I really appreciate Ben's help and would not hesitate in recommending him.
— Sonya Brucciani MCIM, Head of Marketing & Communications
Amelia has fantastic knowledge and understanding of the sector. I find her to be extremely professional and approachable and really valued the advice and support she gave me in making the transition from public sector commissioning to business development in the charity sector. I have regularly recommended Amelia to friends and colleagues seeking opportunities in the charity sector. I would also recommend her to HR managers seeking an insightful and skilled approach to recruitment.
— Jo Hannan: Public Sector Partnerships Manager, The Prince's Trust
Working with the team at Charity People has been like a breath of fresh air. I worked with Anna who took the time to get to know me and fully understand what I wanted from my next role. Before working with Charity People I had found it increasing difficult to find an agency who would actually offer advice and guidance when contemplating my next move. Job hunting is very individual process, it can be stressful and takes up huge amounts of time but the team at Charity People genuinely understand this and work hard to make it as easy as possible. I simply cannot recommend them enough.
— David, Corporate Partnerships Manager
After being made unexpectedly redundant, Charity People have recently been finding work for me. Needless to say, and particularly with a young family, it's been an extremely stressful, worrying time. I've received great help from Stuart Milliner, who has been absolutely superb in helping me to get back on track. Stuart's put loads of jobs my way, which has helped me to see light at the end of the tunnel when I've been feeling down in the dumps and has always picked up the phone to talk about anything job search related (unlike some who claim to be top of the tree, don't answer your calls!)
— Rick Roberts, Trusts Manager
Gurvinder is truly amazing at what she does, and is the definition of what all good Recruiters should aspire to be!
I've had people (including her ex colleagues) recommend her to me, not knowing that I'm already in touch with her, which shows that she makes a good impression to anyone she comes into contact with.
Gurvinder is kind and compassionate, and goes the extra mile to ensure she works hard to match the right candidates with the right role. And once successfully placed in a role, she keeps in contact to make sure both parties are happy. Again this shows Gurvinders' ongoing dedication.
Gurvinder has also sourced candidates for me in previous roles, and she worked tirelessly to make sure our recruitment needs had been fulfilled.
I can't recommend Gurvinder enough and believe she is and will continue to be an asset to any organisation!
— Melissa Lewis - Candidate
"Working with Ellen was a truly positive experience; in fact I would go as far to say it was the most positive recruitment experience I have heard of. Not only did she take a genuine interest in my success, but she offered encouragement and advice throughout the process. I have had the privilege of staying in touch with Ellen, seeing her at industry events, and it never ceases to amaze me how capable she is! I couldn't recommend Ellen enough - I wouldn't be where I am today without her."
— Kate Bool, Fundraising Manager, West House
Zelda is a true professional with high personal touch. She has a very humane approach and comes across as a very warm person. As one of her clients, I have found her very approachable. She truly listens and shows her belief in the person she is interacting with. I interacted with several other recruitment consultants, but Zelda stood out amongst all of them.
— Priya Satish, Advisor at Alzheimer's Society
I have had a very positive experience of both Charity People and Career Volunteer. Both Nick and Philip took the time to really understand exactly what senior fundraising and board roles I was looking for professionally and as a trustee. They are a pleasure to deal with and consistently go the extra mile for candidates. I cannot recommend them highly enough to recruiters or candidates.
— Sonya Timms, Head of Major Gifts at ICR and Trustee at Elephant Family
Nick was a fantastic help when I was seeking a new role. He presented a range of relevant opportunities and was in no-way pushy or demanding. I would strongly recommend Nick and the team at Charity People if you are thinking of recruiting or if you are looking for a new role.

Ellen was a fantastic support to me in both recommending suitable vacancies and helping me throughout the application process. She really helped me build confidence before interviewing for my current role which I am sure helped me to be successful.

— Siobhan M
Zelda Leader and the Charity People team have been working tirelessly with me for the past four months in my job search.
Zelda herself, was very knowledgeable of the roles she put forward to me as a candidate. She made sure I was comfortable and happy with my placements, and was very attentive to my needs as a candidate. I will definitely recommend Miss Leader and her team to anyone searching for permanent and temporary roles within the Charity/ Third sector. Zelda and her team are accommodating of candidates needs, knowledgeable about the Charity/Third sector and dedicated towards finding their candidates the most suitable roles based on their needs and skills.

I had a remarkable experience temping for Charity People. From the get go, Zelda and Farrah were extremely approachable and helpful. They found a role which matched my stated goals and were willing to share their knowledge and experience of the job market. They went beyond their job description sharing their insights when I faced a tough decision. I am very pleased with the support received.
— Camille Morrot
Working with Tatiana was so easy from the very first phone call. She is very professional, friendly, supporting and definitely has a personal touch, making the best matches. Starting my new role was so quick thanks to Tatiana, all the time I had very clear updates and was informed about next steps. Even I after I've started my new job Tatiana was making sure everything is alright. I recommend Tatiana and Charity People to anyone who is looking for their next placement.

We've been using Charity People's recruitment services since 2003. During which they have provided us with highly-skilled candidates that not only have the relevant experience but have been a good fit for our organisation.

— Joe Cresswell, Assistant Products Manager at BBC Media Action
The service Amelia provides is absolutely fantastic and I cannot recommend her enough to any charity looking for help with their recruitment. Amelia ensures that she has a full understanding of the charity and the team's needs before finding suitable candidates.
Whilst being extremely professional, Amelia is also incredibly passionate about the third sector and has a real interest in Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention's vision, which is a huge asset. Her enthusiasm and high success rate ensure that she is the first person I call when recruiting for new roles.
— Nikki Barraclough: Executive Director, Prevent Breast Cancer
I found the level of interest Glen took in the recruitment process from start to finish refreshing. Glen had a grasp of the type of person we were looking for very early on and selected CVs of suitable candidates and helped interview them.
I would use Glen again (without a doubt) for our future recruitment needs.
— Chief Executive - British Society for Allergy & Clinical Immunology
When working with recruitment agencies, I want them to understand our organisation, our culture, what we do and don't want in a candidate and I want them to be able to do all of this quickly and without fuss. Ellen makes the recruitment process simple. She's a pleasure to work with, professional, efficient, knowledgable. Ellen just gets it and her experience shines through. I recently worked with Ellen on a Yorkshire role and the pool of candidates she presented to us were very strong. I would recommend her to anyone.
— Caroline O'Doherty
The best thing about Charity People is that the candidates they are able to find not only have the skills we're looking for, but more than that, they have an eye for finding candidates with a good culture fit to our organisation.

Neil is excellent at understanding his clients' requirements and finding the right candidates. He goes the extra mile where other recruiters give up. For Neil it is not a game of numbers when it comes to recruitment it is about understanding people and helping people to better themselves.
— Anik Fonseka, Founder at F25 Insight and Data Analytics
Neil's two best qualities as a recruiter are his passion for his job and his impressive command of the needs and trends in the charity sector. Combined, these qualities make Neil an exceptionally great person to work with, in terms of quality, professionalism and service.
— Marc Selles Consultant at NTT DATA UK
I've known Neil for a few years, initially for my own job search and more recently to recruit at my current organisation. I can't recommend Neil highly enough. He takes great care matching candidates for a role and goes the extra mile to ensure both client and candidate will be a good fit for each other.
Neil is my first point of contact for anything to do with recruitment!
— Stuart Masters, Data Manager at Centrepoint
It can be challenging embarking on recruitment campaigns for very specialist arts fundraising roles. Anna is an expert and has been a rock through two campaigns with me now - delivering great results with cheer and optimism. Anna is doing great work in general to bring professionals across from the traditional charity sector to the arts sector. This has already helped boost the knowledge base in our sector.
— Hamble Wallace, Head of Development at Sadler's Wells
We have used Charity People for recruiting temps for a number of years and have found their service to be indispensable. Professional, friendly and helpful - just the right approach
— Emma Knight, Chief Executive, Greenwich Citizens Advice Bureaux Ltd
We are a small, locally-based, charity, with a community focus. We have ambitions to develop but were lacking the requisite skills and needed to recruit to a very specific role of Business Development Manager. Our previous recruitment attempts to this role had been unsuccessful; not attracting people with the right skills.
We took, what we considered to be, the bold step of asking Charity People to undertaken the recruitment process with us. Ellen listened carefully to what we thought we needed and helped us to shape the role; she advised us on salary and what potential candidates might find appealing about our organisation. What was particularly useful was the help that she gave at each step of the process and when we faltered she was there to talk it through with us again.
As a small organisation we were hesitant about spending in order to recruit but we definitely consider that we would not have reached the candidates that we did and we wouldn't have appointed the successful candidate without Ellen's help. The investment was worth it in terms of getting the right person and easing the burden on current staff throughout the recruitment process.
— Helen Littlewood, Director, Clifton Learning Partnesrship
Anna quickly assimilated our needs, the organisation, the remit of the post, and above all matched well the type of people that would "fit" seamlessly along with requisite skill set. She was prompt with communications, a consummate professional at every juncture, and enjoyable to work with throughout the recruitment process. I would certainly use her to assist with recruitment again.
— Nina Gopal, Director of Fundraising at The Silver Line
Anna is a complete superstar. She recently helped us recruit a fantastic new Fundraising Manager, and we would turn to her for all of our fundraising appointments. She represents the charity very well to potential applicants and always takes the time to understand the needs of the charity and the details of a role. She also gets to know the applicants she puts forward and will not suggest anyone she feels is wrong for the role. Utterly professional and always a delight to work with.
— Olivia Curno, Director of Fundraising at Place2Be
Having considered a number of options for recruiting a senior fundraiser to Tusk, we were delighted to have used the services of Charity People. Anna listened attentively to our needs and quickly understood both the nature of the role and the type of candidate we were looking for. Anna was very effective in taking the pain away from the recruitment process, and swiftly collected a very strong shortlist for us to consider, leading to a very successful appointment in very good time. Anna was a pleasure to work with throughout, and always responded swiftly and professionally to our queries.
— Dan Bucknell, Executive Director, Tusk
"I found Ellen to be very knowledgeable of the sector, incredibly professional and she produced some very high quality people for interview that I recruited from. Her understanding of the role requirements and her ability to put forward skilled candidates due to the time she invested was impressive. Throughout the process she kept me well-informed, making the whole process very positive indeed. I will certainly be using Ellen again in the future."
— Wendy McGauley, Community Fundraising Manager, Leonard Cheshire
In my line of work, agents are part of life. I depend on them to help fill roles and I rely on them to portray the roles with the same energy, enthusiasm and passion as I. We were recently looking to fill a post of Compliance within the growing and demanding fundraising team. We had seen several people and we were getting to the stage when I thought the perfect person did not exist. Zelda never gave up searching - her personable approach, meticulous tendency as well as sheer dogged determination meant that the perfect person did exist. Three months in, she is still the perfect person. I would definitely work with Zelda again.
— Leo Visconti - Deputy Director of Fundraising at St Mungo's
Amelia is an exceptional recruiter. She is incredibly passionate about finding you the right candidate and goes above and beyond to ensure that happens. She is such a great relationship manager, from start to finish, never losing momentum or enthusiasm. Amelia was always quick to respond and never worked at less than 100%.
She found us a wonderful postholder and I know having spoken to them they also had the best experience from the other side.
Could not recommend Amelia more highly, she is fantastic.
— Hannah Sheedy, Nordoff Robbins
We had a Fundraising Officer role that we required temporary help at short notice. Given the appeals we were already working on, it was important that we had someone who could not only start immediately but was also able to get up to speed with the work and continue the campaign.
I spoke to Zelda and she not only understood quickly what we required but also managed to find us a temp who was very experienced in fundraising who could join immediately. We have been very pleased with the temp's work and how she seamlessly took on the work and fit into the team. I now have a second temp through her and recommending her services. Zelda's polite manner, immediate grasp of your requirements and her ability to get you the right fit is commendable. I have no hesitation in recommending Zelda- she's my go-to person at Charity people.
— Dee Babudoh - HR Manager, Mothers' Union
Tatiana approached me to give Charity People a try for 2 temp positions that I needed to fill fairly swiftly. After a few straightforward email exchanges, Tatiana already had 3 candidates in mind and sent their details over within 24hrs. Tatiana arranged for a brief introductory chat with them and they were all perfectly suitable for the position. I chose 2 of them off the back of that chat and after just 3 weeks in position, they are settled, proactive and conscientious. I'm very happy with them and Tatiana's reliable recommendations.
— David Mitchell - RIBA
Tatiana was extremely adept at understanding our needs and sending relevant candidates over for consideration. She checked in with me on a regular basis to see how the candidate was performing and was flexible on needs going forward.
