After many years' working in executive search and selection, and having sold a former recruitment business, in 2002, Jenny identified a need for a specialist charity recruitment consultancy and founded Charisma Recruitment. Being passionate about helping individuals on their career journeys, particularly within the charity sector, Jenny saw that the experience she has gained could offer benefit to charities struggling to find the best people to join their teams.
Since its inception, Charisma has grown to become a trusted and respected recruitment partner for charities throughout the UK and she and the team have worked closely with HR professionals and charity trustees to develop their leadership teams. Jenny’s expertise culminated in her being awarded Honorary Fellowship of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals.
Jenny has volunteered as a listening Samaritan, and as a fundraiser for cancer and homeless charities and currently volunteers as a Career Mentor for three charities. Jenny continues to support Charisma in an advisory capacity.
