Meet the team

Amelia Lee

Regional Director

​Amelia is our 'go-to' girl for all your recruitment needs in the regions, with a particular focus on fundraising and development opportunities. Amelia's candidates and clients have both commented on her contagious energy and enthusiasm for the causes she works with and we think that's what makes her so adept at matching the right person to the right role. Her approach is sincere and personal; supporting you to progress your career or develop and nurture your cause.

Amelia's USP is her ability her to listen carefully to what you want and understand how to make that a reality.

A real Yorkshire girl, Amelia now lives and works just across the Pennines and has fundraised and volunteered for some wonderful causes including running the New York Marathon for Macmillan, where her fundraising efforts were as diverse as bake sales, raffles and a charity rave! Amelia's hobbies and interests have been equally eclectic over the years from yoga to techno, brass banding to Sheffield Wednesday, and walking in the hills to dancing the sunshine.

  • ​I’ve worked with Amelia as both a recruiter and candidate for a number of years. As a candidate, I’ve really valued and trusted Amelia’s insights into an organisation’s team and culture, alongside a thorough understanding of the opportunity itself. I’ve felt fully prepped and prepared by Amelia before interview who is always happy to provide more info, update and advise throughout the process. As a client, I recognise the importance for Amelia to take the time to understand exactly what the role and team needs so that the whole recruitment process is as effective and positive as possible. It is a pleasure to work with Amelia

  • Amelia worked closely with us on a recent recruitment of a Corporate fundraiser.She took time to understand the challenges we had with finding the right candidates in the past, and the type of person who would work well with the current team.Taking the time to gain the insight from us meant we had a pool of candidates that led to productive interviews and a successful candidate who started with us today.I have no hesitation recommending Amelia and Charity People for your recruitment needs and look forward to seeing how her candidate develops into the role and ultimately has a big impact at the NSPCC.

  • ​“I first met Amelia when we asked her to help recruit our Major Gifts and Trusts Fundraising Manager post. It was important for us to enlist the help of someone with local knowledge of the North West area. Amelia took the time to meet with us in person at our offices which helped her get a good understanding of our team culture so she could help find someone who not only had the expertise to drive our fundraising strategy forward but who would fit in with the rest of the team. She came up with a fab shortlist of candidates and to be honest we probably could have hired any one of them.Amelia was easy to work with and really understood what we as a Charity were looking for, totally professional throughout the recruitment process. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a professional, knowledgeable recruitment consultant.”​

  • ​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.

  • ​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.

  • ​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.
