NGO Recruitment

Here at WellsGray, we have over two decades of experience in NGO Recruitment for non-profit organisations. Our specialists are not only qualified in recruiting staff in a wide spectrum of NGO sectors, but also in placing candidates into an array of some of Melbourne’s leading charity organisations. If you aim to find the best talent for your non-profit organisation, our not-for-profit recruitment consultants can help you build a team that will sustain and grow your institution into a lasting and fruitful enterprise.

Some of the most important factors to consider when hiring for the not-for-profit sector are the candidate’s desire to help others, as this will reveal their level of empathy and passion for the organisation and the NGO industry.

It is frontline not-for-profit staff that do the hard work of engaging with the public during charity drives and big marketing campaigns. 

This is why hiring a recruitment agency of professionals who specialise in not-for-profit recruitment is vital to successfully sourcing and hiring the right candidate for your short or long-term needs. 

WellsGray Recruitment partners with many not-for-profit organisations to build an in-demand workforce using temporary staff. In this way, we ensure you have the perfect team on hand to cope with the fluctuating needs of your organisation.
