Roles we recruit for
Diversify your non-profit board
The Charity Governance Code states that diverse boards are more effective as they reflect different perspectives and make better choices within the communities they serve.
We work with charities of all sizes to place high-quality trustees that aspire to make a difference and drive change.
Diversify your board
Research shows that having a diverse board with a variety of skills and perspectives is proven to boost performance across financial and non-financial metrics.
We place committed and accomplished NEDs in public and private sectors, ensuring a strong skills fit and diverse longlist.
Find your next Chair
An inclusive Chair is essential in ensuring diverse perspectives, balanced skills and strong governance – and it’s now expected by regulators.
We work in the charity, public, and private sectors to place outstanding Chairs to level up corporate governance, enhance performance and lead vital change.
Source outstanding diverse leaders
A diverse executive leadership team is an important part of creating inclusive cultures and driving future growth.
We work with organisations to place C-level, Director and Head of roles to strengthen and diversify leadership teams.
Recruiting leaders to keep pace with future needs
Governance is always evolving. We help charities keep up with the continuous evolution of board roles, sourcing candidates with the right skills, competence and experience to lead their organisation.
Experts in placing senior finance executives
From recruiting a Chief Finance Officer to sourcing a Chair of an audit committee, we have an unrivalled track record in placing senior finance leaders across multiple sectors.
Supporting public sector service excellence
Our in-house team of executive search consultants draw on their experience working with and within public sector bodies to help organisations unlock leadership potential and support succession planning.
Supporting the STEM transformation agenda
We recognise the breadth, depth and scope of transformation currently underway in STEM industries. In such a highly competitive industry, we help organisations successfully source the right people for their business.
Supporting the world of sport to be more inclusive
We’ve helped over 100 governing bodies recruit personnel and comply with various sports governance codes.
Our work continues to transform the diversity of boards, with many clients now achieving gender parity in the boardroom.
The recruitment partner of choice for legal regulators
We carry out vital work to support organisations within the legal sector, including the Bar Standards Board and Office for Legal Complaints.
Our unique approach ensures that we engage with both lay and non-lay members, ensuring open and transparent recruitment.
I do want to commend you for the amazing quality of people we have recruited, and are hopefully about to recruit, to the Heritage Care and Amber Housing Boards respectively. I really am very grateful to Inclusive Boards. These appointments are so important in massively improving our equality and diversity and supporting our transformation agenda.Simon Griffiths
Former Chair, Heritage Care (now Ambient Support)
I am pleased with the high calibre of appointments to the board of the Office for Legal Complaints. Alison, Dale and Martin bring a wide range of experience and expertise that will further bolster the OLC as it implements its plans to transform the service it offers to complainants and the legal services profession.Dr Helen Philips
Chair, Legal Services Board
We commissioned Inclusive Boards to work on our Trustee search for a candidate with a finance/business background. We were extremely pleased with the longlist of candidates presented to us. The candidates were exceptional and diverse from groups that are currently under-represented on our board. The communication was consistent and service delivered was of the highest standard. We set out to find one Trustee, but through this process, we were able to appoint three candidates to our board.Kate Varah
Executive Director, The Old Vic
I'd like to thank Inclusive Boards for recommending me for the National Youth Agency Trusteeship. Had they not contacted me, I would never have seen the opportunity. The team was encouraging and supportive of my application, and I am pleased to say I was successful in being awarded the post. Thank you for your support. I'd recommend others to work with Inclusive Boards in the future.Daniel Chery
With 30 years’ experience in healthcare and life sciences, I've had many interactions with recruiters. In the short time I've worked with Inclusive Boards, I have to say they stand out! Their attention to me as a candidate has been second to none. Their professional insight to support my application and personal touch combined to give a really first-rate candidate experience. In a world where recruiters say one thing and do another, it's a true pleasure to have someone who really does treat candidates as individuals. Thank you – keep up the great work!Mark Duman
“The support provided by Inclusive Boards was excellent. The process was clearly set out, communication was
clear and my request for further information was met quickly. Our consultant was very professional, including ensuring handover to colleagues if she was away, so at all times I had a point of reference within the team.”Kathryn Pugh
