New recruitment service for the North West

New recruitment service for the North West

Voluntary sector recruitment agency Bruce Tait Associates and fundraising consultancy Impact Fundraising have combined forces to launch a recruitment service to help charities in the North West of England.

Based in Liverpool, Charity Careers North West is headed up by fundraisers Victoria Symes, director of Impact Fundraising, and Bruce Tait, chief executive of Bruce Tait Associates.

As well as specialising in fundraiser recruitment, Charity Careers North West will also help charities fill all central posts, from finance to administration.

Symes said:

“Every region and charity has a different set of recruitment challenges, and the best people to meet these needs are those who know the region and the sector from the inside. Liverpool alone has over 8,000 voluntary organisations, employing nearly 25,000 people, and bringing an estimated value of £918 million to the region every year. These charities are entitled to a recruitment service that understands their needs.”

The new service marks the further expansion of Charity Careers, which already has online recruitment services in Scotland and Ireland. Charity Careers Ireland launched last year led by Bruce Tait Associates and Irish fundraising consultancy O’Kennedy Consulting.
