The Charisma way​

Partnership; every search is unique and we work diligently to ensure a successful campaign. As we work in partnership it is important that we get to know the organisation, so we represent you with the same passion you have for your cause. Having this deep understanding ensures that we attract talented individuals who share your values, your way of working and will bring additional skills to allow the organisation to thrive further.

Documentation; we can assist with putting together an inspiring and attractive Candidate Pack, ensuring that your organisation and it's mission is clearly demonstrated to the candidates. The pack will bring your organisation to life and clearly demonstrate to potential candidates why they would want to join your team.

Advertising; we advise using a range of advertising options to spread the net as widely as possible. In our experience, we find that individuals interested in new opportunities will be most active on selected sites specialising in charity and non-profit organisations.
