Appointing executive leaders that make change happen

Strong leadership is key to the success of any charity or not for profit organisation. The rate of change for the industry is accelerating and events like the current pandemic only increase this. So you need leaders who are creative and innovative, ready to identify new opportunities and make change happen.

Finding the right person is easier said than done, but our executive search team can help make this a reality. You will have the full support of a dedicated consultant who will work in partnership with you to achieve success.

Diversity & inclusion for charities

It has never been more important for charities and Not for Profits to ensure that their boards, leadership teams and workforces represent the people and communities that they support. Better representation of a diverse society makes it easier for charities to champion all of society's members, bring new ideas to the table and respond to the changing environment.

We help charitable organisations develop more diverse leadership and inclusive workplaces. We achieve this through a number of methods, including removing unconscious bias in job advertising and by utilising our broad and varied networks which have been built to reflect the need for diversity.

Data driven recruitment for hiring certainty

We offer psychometric testing, through our partner Thomas International, to provide data on candidate behaviour, personality and aptitude. By adopting a data driven approach, you can have increased certainty that your hiring choice will be the right fit. You'll also gain an understanding of how to help them reach their absolute potential.

Our consultants are accredited to deliver these tests, giving you the insights you need at a fraction of the cost. To find out more about how psychometric testing can improve your executive search campaign, get in touch.

"Morgan Hunt were tasked with recruiting up to three new Board members and three independent committee members for YMCA St Paul’s Group. Our expectations were high and the skills we were looking for was diverse.

Despite us instructing them in the build up to Christmas they managed to attract a strong long list from which Will supported us to whittle this down to an exciting shortlist from which we successfully made our appointments in early January.

We were very well supported by Will and the Morgan Hunt team during the process they not only provided helpful insights into the candidates but also supported the interview and appointment process. Despite an ambitious timetable, the candidates and ourselves felt well informed and supported in the process."
