Charity-specific recruitment agencies have been largely concentrated in London, but there are some national agencies with charity/not-for-profit sections, and those based in London do often work outside the capital.

Some agencies specialise in particular types of post, senior executive or fundraisers for instance, which is indicated where known. There are also specialist agencies for activity areas such as Residential Care staff – generally not listed by us, although some may appear via the job sites (online vacancy listings) page.

Working For a Charity is a training course for those wanting to move in to the voluntary sector.
