If you're working for a charity, you'll already know that providing the right services means listening carefully to the people who use them.
It's just the same for us at Harris Hill, so we've teamed up with Third Sector Jobs to give you the chance to air your views (and to win a £150 Amazon voucher!) in a short but sector-wide survey on charity recruitment in general, and - if you've used it - our service in particular.
Whether you've enlisted our help to find a role, fill a role, or never worked with us at all, we're keen to hear your thoughts on:
- what you look for in a charity recruiter
- how you feel about the service you receive
- what we're doing well/not so well
- what could be improved to better support your recruitment or job search process
About the survey
To complete the survey should take no more than 5 minutes and you can choose to express your views based on experience of job hunting within the sector, recruiting, or both (see below).
If you'd like to answer from both perspectives, select 'I have hiring responsibility' to answer firstly as an employer, and the questions relating to job-seeking will follow afterwards. However you only need to answer from one perspective to be entered for the prize draw.
All feedback will be confidential and Third Sector will remove names/personal details before sharing your responses with us. All data seen by Harris Hill will be anonymous so please feel free to be open and candid in your answers.
To say a huge thank you for completing the survey, Third Sector will enter you into a prize draw on our behalf, for a chance to win a £150 Amazon voucher.
Entries close on Friday 9th March 2018 and we'll announce the winner shortly afterwards.
As charity recruitment specialists, the better our understanding of your challenges and requirements, the more we can focus our energies in the right direction and strive to meet your needs as efficiently and effectively as possible.
So we'd love to hear what you think!
