Public & Not for Profit

For over 20 years Caithness Consulting has been setting standards and developing new relationships within Charities, Social Enterprises, the NHS, Social Care and Public Bodies.

Whether it is for a new CEO, Senior Manager in Fundraising, HR, Marketing, or anything else, give us a call. Our specialist Consultants, who have considerable knowledge of this sector, are some of the most experienced in the country.

Our Candidate Sources

We have a general database of contacts to call upon, but unlike many of our competitors, we don’t solely rely on this as our prime source of candidates, as this can become stale and out of date – regurgitating  the same candidates time after time.
Having a large database does not equate to having a lot of live candidates.

Instead – We Start Every Search with a Fresh Pair of Eyes.

Yes, we will interrogate our database.
Yes, we will also use appropriately targeted advertising, including Social Media.

However, the most important asset we have is not only our knowledge of the sector, but our extensive network of contacts built up over 20 years within it. This is the value added you will benefit from by coming to us. We will tap into our unique network of candidate contacts covering many specialist fields and sectors from Chairs, Trustees and CEO’s to Managers and Officers, bringing your role to their attention.
