Welcome to The Hiring Dept.

Welcome to The Hiring Dept.

The Hiring Dept. may be the newest executive search practice serving the charity, non-profit, and civil society sector, but we bring a rich heritage and unrivaled level of expertise, and a successful track record of delivering on executive search campaigns and broader leadership talent advisory solutions.

We also understand better than most what constitutes leadership success, as a consequence of all of our consultants and associates having worked in the sector we serve, with each bringing over two decades of relevant experience to inform our work.

Our Approach

We are mission-driven and take a highly personalised and professional approach to all that we do, with the promotion of equality, diversity, and inclusion sitting at the very heart of our practice.  

We understand the sector and the leadership roles to which you are appointing and are widely recognised for the quality of and our ability to conduct original research and leverage our networks.

We add real value to a search in terms of diversity, introducing you to exceptional candidates you don’t already know, and we have achieved significant success in deploying search as a tool to amplify your reach and build partnerships over and above the expectations of the brief.

We have an ambition to positively disrupt and change the market, providing a credible alternative and driving up standards in our industry, making the greatest possible impact through the hiring of exceptional talent who evidence and live the values of our clients and who will play a pivotal role in enhancing their capability, capacity, and impact.

Our Brand

Our brand has been specifically designed to be bold and unapologetic. Our flag-shaped logo symbolises action-led activism, and the sharp angles and striking colour bring the brand to life.

We are a London-based team and have a broader reach with offices in Nottingham, Edinburgh, and Carnarvon.
