Non-Profit Organisations

Helping NPOs find great leaders in Africa

Executive search

We source at Board, C-Suite, Executive and senior management levels, across a wide range of functions. Most of the time, we’re helping you fill your toughest roles: Leaders (ex-pats & local nationals, in- country or abroad) for NPOs in Africa.

Market mapping

With market maps, we help you make some of your best and most informed decisions. Market Mapping (also called ‘Talent Mapping’) provides assurance on important business (and people) decisions, by giving you data and insights.

Leadership coaching

To enhance the likelihood of an effective and successful transition for new leadership appointments, we highly recommend including a leadership coaching process for the first 6 – 9 months.

Here’s your Pre-Hire Checklist – an essential list of dos and don’ts to ensure a successful hire for your NPO in Africa.

  • Is the region one that holds appeal for candidates not currently living there?

  • Does your recruitment partner have access to the right people, in the right markets?

Permits and Visas

  • Is your HR team aware of all the legal implications on hiring for the country you’re working in?
  • Have all work permits and residence visas been applied for?


  • Does your offer take into account all the ‘bells and whistles’ needed to secure a top candidate to work in Africa?
  • Have you considered the withholding tax that the salary would be subject to?

    Time to appointment
