Graduate jobs 'potential' in charity sector
Friday, 07 November 2008
A rise in the total number of vacancies within the charity sector has been witnessed during the last 12 months, it has revealed.
Research conducted by CharityJOB found a 4.4 per cent increase in permanent placements between October 2007 and October 2008, reports Recruiter Magazine.
The statistic echoes the results of a recent National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) survey, which recently suggested that 40 per cent of charities intend to take on more staff, potentially in graduate jobs.
Speaking to the news provider, CharityJOB co-founder Steve Wexler said the organisation was "driven by a mission to help charities save millions of pounds from their recruitment budgets".
"Our cost effective proposition is more valuable than ever in the current economic conditions," he added.
Last week, NCVO chief executive Stuart Etherington claimed that charities which are versatile and willing to consider all available options would be able to survive and thrive despite the onset of recession.
