Oxford HR utilises its global expertise and experience to provide a specialist executive search and organisational effectiveness service to support the needs of British for-purpose organisations, from philanthropies and foundations, NGOs and overseas aid to smaller UK-based charities. We partner with these organisations to appoint and nurture inspiring and innovative leaders who can maximise the impact of the work they carry out.
With the challenges faced by the shifting political and economic landscape, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, the effects of Brexit, the refugee crisis, inequality, and increased competition for funding, demonstrating positive and measurable outcomes are critical to every organisations’ success. We have the breadth of experience across the sector, and senior level networks, to ensure the best possible outcomes. We genuinely care about the quality of our work, and the impact that our appointments have. A recent focus of our work has been on improving diversity on boards; identifying under-represented candidates for Trustee appointments and helping organisations achieve their ambitions in this area.

I am writing to thank you and the team at Oxford HR for all the work done, and guidance given, on our search for a chief executive for Rwanda Action.
I know that we could not have found such an impressive candidate with such an excellent fit with our organisation, without you and the team at Oxford HR. I also know how much work has gone on behind the scenes to make this appointment possible: the preparation of the initial brief, discussions with candidates, the collating of all the information and the reporting back to the board
