I have worked with many recruiters in the past and it’s hard to get someone who truly takes the time to understand your organisation. We felt Rachael really made an effort to understand our business, our community, and the complexity and intricacies around our faith based organisation. We were impressed with how they cared for our needs, all the way to the final candidate, and on that choice we could not be happier.

Jason Sandler, President - JewishCare

One of the critical system challenges that needs to be addressed to drive real change in the sector is securing the right talent. People for Purpose think broadly and creatively about how best to source talent, and use their extensive network across sectors to tap into a unique and diverse pool of skills and perspectives.

Michael Traill, Chair - Paul Ramsay Foundation

Featured opportunities

People for Purpose came highly recommended to us. Having engaged them for our CEO recruitment, I can now see why. They adopt a very robust up-front process. That is; they invested deeply to understand the ambitions of the organisation, the characteristics of the Board and the range of our stakeholders and constituents. We could not be happier with the results.

Sally Howland, Chair - Support Act

We had a critical role to fill at Schools Plus. One which required a set of capabilities and expertise which we were unsuccessful in finding through our networks and our own online recruitment search. People for Purpose were relentless in identifying high quality candidates which fitted the brief and thanks to their professionalism we found the perfect person.
