Why work with us

Knowledge, Expertise and Insight

We understand that you need more than just an expert – we understand what makes the not-for-profit sector tick. Our knowledge and insight of the sector helps us provide you with the best recruitment or development experience. Our creative and innovative approach helps us to find the ideal solution for your specific requirements. And, if your request is outside of our capability, and we genuinely believe we cannot help you, we will recommend industry clients who can – ensuring that all of our energy and commitment is driven to meet your needs.

Networks and Relationships

Large databases and recycled shortlists do not guarantee successful appointments. The best senior level recruiters use their excellent networks blended with an understanding of your needs to find the people you want. Our ability to build genuine relationships and intelligent connections makes us a trusted source for candidates and clients. We regularly network across the sectors, through senior level events, networks, discussions and dinners. This enables us to maintain sector knowledge, excellent relationships and strong candidates pools.

Track Record

We have helped create a number of senior level appointments across various charities and housing associations. Our commitment to delivering results is always maintained by our own high standards and we strive to make the best appointments for you after our detailed conversations. As our client, we honour your trust in us and we will endeavour to provide a positive recruitment or development experience that is second to none.


We are a small, efficient team with a clear focus on your needs and requirements. And to help us deliver your requirements, you need a recruiter who has the knowledge, passion and desire to find you the right candidates. When you use Boardspace you have a dedicated partner for your business –we combine our energy, tenacity and passion until if find you your ideal candidate, and we will not rest until we do. We are proud of this, because we genuinely care on delivering an exceptional service.


Successful recruitment cannot happen from waving a magic wand. Successful recruitment is based on robust resourcing methods of rigour and due diligence. Our processes are completely open and transparent; our feedback is constructive and honest both for candidates and clients; and our customer service is driving by own high standards of service.


Problem solving and collaboration matters. We take the time to understand your unique environment; the clients and stakeholder you work with; your organisation’s people, culture and business, and the key performance indicators that matter to you even before we start our search. We will work in partnership with you to better understand your needs and minimise any risks. Each assignment starts with a bespoke recruitment plan, guided by you and we will work against this through our recruitment and development services with you.
