Management Talent Acquisition on the Rise in Not-for-Profit Sector with 104 roles advertised in Q4 and 373 for 2017 as a whole.

(02 Jan 2018)
















2into3 Quarterly Recruitment Monitor has shown that there has been a 12% increase in management roles advertised in the sector in Quarter 4, 2017. Services and Operations roles were the most popular in Q4 with CEO roles doubling on Q3, while Fundraising and Commercial roles advertised have also increased. The full report can be found here.

The 2into3 Quarterly Recruitment Monitor tracks trends and provides insight on management level recruitment in the not-for-profit sector on a quarterly basis.

Irish seasonally adjusted unemployment rate declined to 6.1 percent in November 2017 from an upwardly revised 6.3 percent in the previous month and compared with 7.5 percent a year earlier. It was the lowest jobless rate since May 2008. Forecasters predict it to dip below 6% in 2018 and stay below 6% until 2022 at least. This changes the landscape for talent in Ireland. We are now experiencing an employee’s market for recruitment in general and this trend has reached the not-for-profit sector.

In an employee’s market candidates can be selective, pay differentials are noticed, there is a lower response to job adverts, non-pay conditions increase in importance. Candidates for management roles in the not-for-profit sector will often have multiple offers and while pay differentials for a similar skill and experience set with private sector opportunities (typically up to 50% lower in not-for profit sector) are understandable differentials with peer not-for-profit organisations of similar scale for similar roles are not.

2into3 can support not-for-profit organisations talent acquisition and retention.
