Senior & Board Appointments

Consider us an extension to your team from the outset and leave the heavy lifting to us


Whether you’re looking for a new CEO, a senior leader, trustee or board member, recruitment is our specialism, and we’re incredibly good at it. Once we understand what you’re looking for, we’ll create a bespoke service that meets your requirements, and we’ll draw on our wider team of experts to design your executive search from scratch.

Senior appointments require a little more thought than everyday recruitment. We add value from the beginning, designing candidate application packs, recruitment processes and assessment centres to spotlight your organisation and promote your unique opportunity.

Memcom Executive is committed to diversity, and our processes have been designed by an award-winning EDI consultant. We can - and do - support blind shortlisting processes, neuro-divergent interview processes and impartial assessments. 

We can also bring in independent panellists to broadenrepresentation and provide diversity of thought, and our response-handle, longlist and shortlist services stand up to external scrutiny. Our talent pools are hugely diverse and stretch far beyond the usual suspects which means that we’re able to challenge the way you think about recruitment.

We’re the market leader for non-profit executive recruitment for membership organisations, and with more than 50 years’ recruitment experience, you’ll struggle to find more experienced sector specialists than Memcom Executive.

Recruitment Advertising & Response Handling

Partner with an expert who can save you money and time, by getting it right from the offset.

If you don’t have the budget for full recruitment services but still need expert support, why not consider our recruitment advertising and response handling services? 

We’ve partnered with experienced recruitment advertising agency Matrix MSG to bring you lower-cost advertising and put together bundles of options to save you time and money, and take your advertisement to a wider audience.

We’ll handle the responses and even provide a professional EDI-compliant shortlisting process to make sure that you’re only interviewing candidates who can - and want - to do the job.
