Temp and interim

100% of clients say they would recommend Charity People for temporary staff and use us again*

What we offer

  • Talented candidates with a passion for the sector
  • Fast response times
  • Excellent customer service
  • A collaborative and consultative style
  • Honest and reliable consultants

The temps team at Charity People are on hand to assist you whether you need planned interim cover, an extra pair of hands on deck at short notice or a panic stations early morning temp. There are no bookings too big or too small for us and we will always strive to find you the right person as quickly as possible. We have a great number of temporary staff on our books and we make a point of meeting and interviewing them all face to face, assessing their skills and checking references before we present candidates to clients.

As standard practice we take the time to asses our clients’ requirements and conscientiously match the skills and personality traits of our candidates. Our clients are safe in the knowledge that we’ll never just send the first person that becomes available in to do a job. It’s important to us that we provide a candidate that fits in with the working culture and can get the job done without the need for training. We carefully filter our shortlist to ensure that our selections have been carefully considered.

We work on behalf of a number of wonderful and inspirational charities and non profit organisations and our candidates all share our passion for the sector.

We are proud to say that we have a completely compliant, UK-based payroll system.

We typically work on the following roles but we love a challenge so if you can’t see what you need on the list pick up the phone and we’ll let you know if we can help :

  • Administrators for all departments

"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."

"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."

Deputy Director of Fundraising at St Mungo's

 

"Tatiana approached me to give Charity People a try for two temp positions that I needed to fill fairly swiftly. After a few straightforward email exchanges, Tatiana already had three candidates in mind and sent their details over within 24 hrs. Tatiana arranged for a brief introductory chat with them and they were all perfectly suitable for the position. I chose two of them off the back of that chat and after just three weeks in position, they are settled, proactive and conscientious.

I’m very happy with them and Tatiana’s reliable recommendations."

David Mitchell
Head of Membership Services

"Zelda is dedicated to her job. I have known Zelda for couple of years and working with her has been both professionally productive and pleasure. From Senior Consultant to Associate Director at Charity People, she has been doing amazing job, being approachable, honest and providing an excellent service. 

I would have no hesitation to working with Zelda in future."
