Khulisa workshop

Khulisa chose to work with NFP for our executive search after a competitive tendering process. Well above their competitors, it was clear to us that they had listened to our brief, understood our needs and were able to take on board our values and ethos.  We felt that their service would be the most bespoke and responsive to what we were saying and not trying to fit us in to a standard recruitment process template.

Throughout we found them easy to work with which is a bonus with such a high-stakes role as this.  They were proactive in their planning, kept us informed each step of the way and at all times listened to us.  NFP accepted our challenges, provided guidance when and where necessary and ably included the recruitment and assessment elements that we wanted to be in line with our values but that were not your standard fare.  They accepted a level of discomfort that is synonymous with how we work but that is often unfamiliar to others.

Shivani and Simon provided exceptional personal support to both me as departing Chief Executive and to the board while the NFP team were always there when we needed them.

I could no more highly recommend NFP for any organisational recruitment.  We would work with them again in a heart-beat!
