Nick has been recruiting staff at all levels since 2007 and has focused exclusively on the charity sector from 2009.
He graduated from Exeter University before joining an international engineering recruitment firm, sourcing for global pharmaceutical clients. Following a period of international travel he started recruiting fundraisers for a variety of charities. With some experience of corporate fundraising at Cancer Research UK, Nick led our fabulous fundraising team for four years.
As of April 2020, he is our Managing Director and is relishing the challenge of leading Charity People through its next phase of development.
I have worked with Charity People and Nick Billingham for well over ten years. Charity People have all the positive attributes of a small, family run company with all the clout & expertise of a much, much larger organisation. They are genuinely interested in both the charity and the candidates which makes a change from some other recruiters who tend to give you a block of people on their books without much thought to mix or fit. Nick is great to know and work with and takes time to get to know you and how you best work. He is always full of useful insight into the sector and trends.
I have worked with Nick both in my role at King's and Tommy's. His warm and professional approach makes Nick a stand-out recruitment consultant who takes a genuine interest in matching the right candidates, with the right roles. He makes the process so much more easy and rewarding with his extensive knowledge of the charity sector and his wide network of contacts. I would highly recommend working with Nick, he has found me some of the most talented fundraising stars I've ever worked with!
