The Public and Not-For-Profit sectors are facing a sea of change. Both are conditioned by current institutional shifts, and wider global-political factors. As such, both share similar challenges as they look to appoint key leaders with new skill sets.
As one of the largest and most successful international executive placement providers, Page Executive has a deep understanding of the key players and idiosyncrasies of these practices. Our dedicated Public Sector & Not-For-Profit team has accumulated a successful track record of placing many C-suite executives and Non-Executive positions, as well as real change-makers from the for-profit sectors into these challenging niches.
Innovation, commercialisation and digitalisation are the top three trends affecting the public and not-for-profit sectors. Digitalisation is transforming everything from local charities to the front line services to social housing tenants. In the age of ‘paying it forward’, philanthropic organisations have become complex and sophisticated, requiring innovative marketing and commercial strategies. Transparency and scrutiny are more important than ever before, demanding a consumer-centric mindset in these traditionally non-commercial and bureaucratic practices.
We are adept at finding effective, institutionally savvy leaders who are used to working in complex and bureaucratic environments that are becoming subject to increasing accountability.
