Fundraisers for charities that mean business

Money is life for charities and not-for-profit organisations. Luckily, we’ve got vast experience sourcing the best income generators in the industry.


Finding a brilliant fundraiser can feel like searching for four-leaf clover.
Your ideal candidate needs to have next-level communication skills and unwavering resilience. They need to charm, without smarm. It takes a special kind of person. We can help. Since 2002, we’ve been the go-to recruitment consultancy for charities and not-for-profit organisations seeking top fundraising talent.
Specialisms Fundraising

Everyone has their part to play in income generation, and we’ve placed candidates at every level; from interns to senior executives. Our owner and MD Adam Stacey is an active member of the Chartered Institute of Fundraising and worked previously in CEO and Development Director roles for charities. Many of our recruitment team have worked in fundraising roles themselves, so they know what to look for.

Our strong network of contacts in fundraising means we can identify and attract the best candidates. Without wanting to brag (too much), our reputation means we can even attract people who aren’t looking for a new role yet. Get in touch so we can help you find your next fundraising superstar.

We keep our ears to the ground
We stay up-to-date with all the latest industry trends, developments and other goings-on to give you a full consultancy service. Nothing gets past us. So, we can advise on your legal and ethical duties, and also give you the heads up on what’s working (and what’s not) in the sector.
