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.

Featured opportunities

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.
