Not For Profit Sector

We are an established senior Executive Search firm

Compass Executives’ Not For Profit Sector Practice has been working with charitable organisations for almost a decade, and we are continuing to build on our successful relationships. It is our depth of experience combined with a granular knowledge of the sector and its challenges which is of paramount importance to our Clients.

Our Clients rely on us to understand the issues impacting the sector, as well as to understand its people, adding a further dimension to our offering and embedding our deep knowledge of the sector.

Chair, Trustees and Non-Executives

Compass Executives are able to source potential Trustees from multiple channels, including our own database, as well as through our strategic partnerships within the Private Sector and Not For Profit organisations.

We have a Trustee Bank which we encourage Clients and prospective Trustees to enquire about – this is a free service where we pair Not For Profit businesses with Trustees with a specific area of expertise, such as: Quality; Finance; Compliance; Governance; Culture; and large-scale Leadership; based on our understanding of both Client and Trustee requirements.

Our reach

We have an expansive cross-sector reach, owing to our market-leading Private Sector Practice, enabling the team to tap into exceptional talent from the For Profit Sector, who are committed to imparting their expertise in the charity space.

This fusion and sharing of knowledge between Practice’s at Compass Executives ensures we are able to assess candidates against the role accurately, and identify the widest possible field of qualified candidates.

We have an unrivalled network of full time and interim Chief Executive Officers, Senior Management, Chair and Trustees, spanning a multitude of sectors and disciplines – all of whom we ensure we meet. As a result, we are truly able to understand what motivates them personally; what is pivotal in their professional lives, as well as where their priorities lie.

Compass Executives’ offering is unique: our sole focus is delivering top talent into the health, social care and specialist education industries.
