Community and Care

Recruiting Not-for-profit and Community Care roles with purpose

It takes a special kind of candidate to step into the not-for-profit sector and the community services and care sector is rapidly expanding its recruitment needs with increasing talent shortages.

Providing support to vulnerable adults, children, elderly and families in the community, candidates in these roles are dedicated and friendly individuals, working with your business to achieve goals. They also need to be versatile and have the capabilities to pitch in beyond their specific skillset when needed.

Recruitment for not-for-profit and community services roles requires a unique approach. Finding the right person comes down to both the skillsets of the individual and shared values/passion for what they do.

What our clients say

peoplefusion delivered what they promised within the time frame outlined, which included the search and selection of three Non-Executive Directors for our Board. The team worked collaboratively with us to address our needs and help us achieve the result we were after. They really do tap into hard to find talent and think outside the square, and understand how crucial Executive roles are to a business and the importance of finding the right person, the first time

‐ Kwesi Addo, Chair, Compass Housing Services

peoplefusion have placed a number of roles with our business. For us it was a no-brainer to work with Ali, Sally and the team to find a Commercial Lawyer to join our team  – their reputation in the market is second to none and their process is thorough, which was integral for us given the complexity of the roles we needed help with. Their constant contact and updates were fantastic and really allowed us to sit back and focus on doing our job, while they did theirs.

‐ Tim Osborn, Director, Osborn Law

Our organisation has grown substantially over the last 12 years and peoplefusion has been instrumental in uncovering talent that has assisted our organisation in going from strength to strength.  peoplefusion really make the effort to understand our business culture to ensure the right fit in the team.  They saved us time and effort in recruitment processes.

‐ Lisa Evans, Chief Financial Officer, Mingara Leisure Group

A restructuring of our Marketing and Communications Team created several new roles that we needed filled. peoplefusion took the time and care to understand our business and our culture, to ensure a happy, high performing team. peoplefusion really do provide the best people and if they can’t, they keep on looking.

‐ Louise Ross, General Manager - Marketing & Communication, Lifestyle Solutions

peoplefusion are diligent, intuitive and exhaustive in sourcing and presenting the best candidates. We’ve partnered with them to source several key appointments, and their candidate care is of the highest standard. We find this critical in the Newcastle market and are extremely pleased with the results.

‐ Lee Smith, Group Manager People & Culture, The Wests Group/Newcastle Knights

A real differentiating factor is you actually advise us on candidates and our approach to ensure we get the best possible outcome. You get to know our business and really understand our recruitment needs rather than simply filling a vacancy, and it’s refreshing to have a team on your side with such high-quality talent within their networks.
