More than 1,200 applications were received and reviewed. Charities were then shortlisted and seven awards were made.“We’re delighted to be able to support such inspiring organisations,” says Raya Wexler, co-founder of CharityJob and CharityConnect. “As ever, our thanks go to all the recruiters who use CharityJob to advertise their roles – it’s because of you that we can give back to the sector in this way.
“Once again, the number of high-quality applications was staggering, and it was very tough to reach a final decision. We’d like to encourage those who were unsuccessful to apply again next year.”
CharityJob was founded by Steve and Raya Wexler in February 2000 to help align inspiring non-profit organisations with the brightest talent. With more than two decades of experience working at charities themselves, serving the sector has always been at the core of CharityJob’s values.
