Mango’s Recruitment team has extensive experience in recruiting professional staff for the NGO sector.
We have experience of working in NGOs' head offices and in the field, as well as in the commercial sector. So we really understand the environment that NGOs work in. We operate to recognised standards of best practice.
Mango is a UK-registered charity, which means we do not act like commercial recruitment consultants. We are motivated by humanitarian goals and are committed to Mango’s values.
