Testimonials
  • I've just had a thoroughly positive experience working with Philippa Bryant recruiting two important posts at Barts Charity. Philippa helped guide the Job Description production to ensure that we attracted the best candidates for the roles in a very short time frame and only presented candidates that she knew would suit the organisation. The whole process was relatively quick and painless and I'm delighted with the results.

  • ​Charity People was recommended to me by a colleague who recently joined the team at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge. She had been in touch with them as a candidate and found them particularly well-connected, very professional and easy to deal with. We were looking for a Development Officer to join the team and struggling to find someone who ticked all the boxes. Philippa took the time to understand the type of profile we were looking for and went through the job description with us in quite a lot of detail. She then proceeded to find us the perfect candidate! I would definitely recommend working with her.

  • ​Philippa was a genuine breath of fresh air as a recruitment consultant. She understood my circumstances and was so helpful answering questions. I felt well prepared for my interview with the background information supplied by Philippa and Charity People. It was actually an enjoyable process from chatting about the job to being offered the position. Thank you so much for your help and friendly attitude.

  • ​Philippa was instrumental in helping me to secure my new position at Wolfson College. She took care of everything, making my application so straight forward. Philippa was fantastic at communicating with me and handled everything with the College including adjusting my interview to a time to fit in with my hectic schedule. Philippa was there for me all the way through the process and I felt very supported. I couldn't have wished for anything more. ​​

  • ​Autistica worked with Philippa recently for the recruitment of our MD manager role. I found Philippa to be highly professional, offer candid advice about the job spec and the types of candidates that would match. Philippa never overpromised and she certainly delivered with a fantastic candidate who is a perfect fit for the role and settling in really well. Charity People have always been my go-to agency and Philippa is a fantastic and reliable part of this team.

  • ​Our major gift team here at Kingston worked with Philippa recently to recruit a new member of staff. It was a challenging role to fill and Philippa was brilliant in helping us find and select the right person for the role. We would definitely work with Charity People again, highly recommended!​

  • ​Working with Philippa to find my new role was such a refreshing experience. Philippa stood out from any other recruiter I was working with, because she really listened to what I wanted from my new role. I only ever heard about roles that matched what I'd asked for. She was always very honest and open throughout the application process, and supportive throughout (including when starting in the new role). Charity People has always been one of the best agencies I've worked with and Philippa is an absolute credit to them.​

  • ​Pete was really helpful from the moment we first spoke: spending time listening and learning about the ethos and purpose of the Anglican Mission Agency I work for, in order to be able to send the most suitable candidates for the vacant post. He sent three candidates, all of whom were appointable, and the one we chose is doing a great job.

  • ​“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.

  • ​Anna is a complete superstar. Utterly professional and always a delight to work with.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.

  • ​Stuart truly went the extra mile - he grasped the issues surrounding my situation (long story!) and took them seriously. This included getting me through the door and, ultimately, forward to employment in the quickest time possible. I know how hard he worked to do this and he kept in constant touch throughout, so I really did feel I was kept informed. He's also great to chat to and his people skills are exemplary.

  • ​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.

  • ​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.

  • ​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 me. We were 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.

  • ​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.
