Board and Advisory

Strategic Appointments and Insight

In a competitive global environment, the ability of the non-executive Board to steer social impact organisations can make a critical difference. The approach of any organisation to diversity, risk management and good governance can set it apart from its peers, fundamentally affecting its sustainability, effectiveness, funding and employer brand.

At Oxford HR, we are experts in finding key, global talent that will protect your reputation, safeguard your future, open up new sources of funding, develop key networks and create a climate of opportunity for both staff and volunteers.

From our extensive, successful track record in the sector, we have the experience necessary to recognise the different motivations that draw people to undertake non-executive, trustee or advisory committee roles, and how these motivations can be utilised to make a positive impact on your organisation. Our industry knowledge and research skills make us best placed to identify the competences needed on a board, and to map those against the existing team, delivering a placement that is both appropriate to the role and complementary to the organisation as a whole.

Our globally-based research team will ensure that the search geography is as broad as it is deep, and our partnership with Career Volunteer also opens up the option of Board Placements from leading corporates.
