Recruitment for the Charity sector

We understand the needs and challenges faced by charities in the UK. Our specialist knowledge means that clients and candidates come back to us when they need to fill a role, or are looking for their next opportunity.

There are over 175,000 registered charities in the UK – some receive government funding, some backed by a trust, but many more receive all their funding solely from public donations.

Charities raise money for all kinds of causes; from support for people with disabilities, to funding for medical research, to preserving historical and cultural artifacts, to caring for vulnerable people and animals. They range from local and niche, including hospices and community projects, to international and far-reaching, like international aid and human rights – and at every level in between.

No matter their cause, all charities need great people to run effectively – from fundraisers and support workers right up to senior executives. At Protocol, we support charities recruit great talent at all levels, so whether you’re looking to hire a key person in your organisation, or looking for your next challenge: we can help.

DBS checks

Many charities require staff to undergo DBS checks before they can start work. For charities looking for a cost-effective and fast way to process these checks, our secure software, eSafeguarding is a great option. The easy-to-use online system is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection, and 4/5 checks are returned within three days – but the majority are completed within 24 hours.

Advice and support

At Protocol, we are committed to building long-term relationships with our clients and candidates. If you work for a charity and are looking to fill a vacancy, we’ll take the time to get to know you, the role and your workplace.

For candidates wishing to work within the charity sector, we’ll make sure we uncover the person behind the CV, and find out your ambitions and motivations. That way, we can place the right person in the right role.

We work across the education sector too
