• 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’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

  • Our previous recruitment attempts to this role had been unsuccessful; not attracting people with the right skills. 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.

  • ​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.

  • ​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.

  • ​“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.”​

  • ​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.
