WHY RECRUIT OPENLY

IT'S TIME TO OPEN UP TRUSTEE RECRUITMENT

For charities, it’s long been the case that many trustees are recruited with a tap on the shoulder or a drink at the golf club. But those days will soon be in the past. We’re seeing increasing evidence that an open recruitment process delivers better results for beneficiaries.

WHY OPEN RECRUITMENT WORKS

Open recruitment works because it brings you more candidates, and particularly a more diverse range of candidates, and this means a greater range of skills and perspectives on your board – two things which are absolutely key to success.

 

Not only that, but because it uses a wider variety of channels and approaches, open recruitment is easier for charities, particularly those which have previously struggled to find trustees. And with 90,000 trustees positions reported as vacant at any one time, it appears more work is needed.
