Forty per cent of small charities ‘have difficulty filling vacancies’

More than four in 10 small charities find it difficult to find people with suitable skills to fill vacancies, according to research published yesterday by the Foundation for Social Improvement as part of its Small Charity Week.

… The job type that organisations found it hardest to recruit to was fundraising, cited by half of respondents – the highest proportion. This was followed by marketing and communications roles on 16 per cent.

The survey also found that lack of funding for training and development was the most popular reason chosen by respondents for having skills gaps in their organisations, with 72 per cent. [emphasis added]
