Charities and Not-for-Profit Organisations

Oxford HR works with medium and large charities across the UK and internationally to identify highly talented individuals from other sectors or stand-out candidates already working within the charity sector. We have worked extensively with social enterprises, education, health and arts organisations and mainstream charities to identify and appoint the key, high-level personnel needed to further the organisations’ goals, provide inspirational leadership and deliver tangible results.

Our team members are hand-picked for their expertise and rich experience of working in this sector. They draw on their own considerable backgrounds in working for charities and not-for-profit organisations to develop a comprehensive understanding of the needs of your organisation and deliver strategic appointments that contribute to your existing team and their objectives.

Oxford HR’s executive search employs a structured methodology to understand your culture, strategy and position and help develop a compelling brief and recruitment approach.  We combine the best of open, transparent promotion of the role and ethical, targeted direct approach techniques to bring you talented individuals who have the knowledge, drive and resilience to continue to shape this sector and the challenges it faces.

"Oxford HR managed the process extremely professionally helping us to source great candidates, whilst taking all the weight off us through the process. Importantly they helped to filter and ensure the fit was right and that candidates were well briefed and genuinely interested and suited to us."

“I’m a big fan and I know I’m very biased, but I’ve had just the best experience and keep recommending Oxford HR – to those people who value quality and personalized service. The difference with Karen is that not only does she understand our organization very well, but she also takes keen personal interest in understanding the individuals that work for Gatsby and this just makes the experience all the more unique and effective. I love working with Oxford HR.”
