Attract talent for your attraction

Charisma helps you recruit the right people, so your organisation can continue treating your guests to the best in leisure, heritage, arts and culture.

Heritage, arts and culture

Over the past two decades we’ve partnered with multiple big-name organisations in the heritage, arts and culture sectors, including national museums and world-famous visitor attractions.

We’ve also supported up-and-coming and purposefully petite organisations to expand their impact through strategic recruitment.

Katherine Anderson-Scott leads this area of our consultancy. Katherine brings rich experience to the role, having previously worked as Development Manager for an arts charity dedicated to engaging young people in music. She’s also worked as Tour Manager for an international travel company specialising in heritage education tours. And just to round off the arts element of her glittering CV, Katherine was Area Sales Manager for the UK’s largest, independent art gallery group.

You see, when we say “we don’t just talk the talk…” this is what we mean. Experienced, knowledgeable specialists who’ve literally been there, done that. And sometimes even got the t-shirt.

Specialisms Heritage Arts and Culture

Katherine will explore your values and priorities as an organisation, then sketch out a plan for how to attract the right people to your role. She won’t just paint-by-numbers, she’ll sculpt a unique, hand-crafted (okay we’ll stop with the arts-related puns) recruitment campaign to draw (sorry) in your ideal candidates.

As ever, our focus won’t be on a tick sheet of “must haves”. We believe in holistic recruitment, so we look at the person as a whole not as a list of credentials. And we use creative, wide-ranging tactics in our search. The result is a diverse and experienced group of candidates for your consideration. Get in touch if this sounds like what you need.

Why Charisma?

We’ll find your perfect person
Decades of experience in the charity and not-for-profit sector means we can snout out talent like a pig snouts truffles. We’ll find candidates with the skills and experience you’re looking for, so you can get on with changing the world.
We care about our people
Our business is all about people, and our own lovely humans are Charisma’s biggest strength. We invest in their development because we want them to continue being industry leaders. And to keep them happy, naturally. We offer flexible working because when we’re at our best, we can help you do incredible things.
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.
We care about all people
You can only be truly innovative when you’ve got a diverse workforce bringing unique perspectives to the work you do. We tear up the tick lists and reach out to a wide range of candidates, regardless of their background.
We partner with you
This isn’t a one-way thing. We work alongside you, get to know you, and learn how you work. That way, we can find the best candidates to match your unique needs. The end goal is to put your organisation in a stronger position; we meet you where you are now and go from there.
