Our Expertise

With the number of hacked websites rising, encryption for Not For Profits is an important trend that will protect their storage of personal data from donors and corporate partners. Electronic payments are now the largest source of revenue for Not For Profits, so a higher focus on them will increase the likelihood of people donating via the internet or mobile campaigns – especially millennials.

Within the Education sector there has been an initiative for teachers to encourage more female students to take STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects to address the gender gap in these courses. With more pupils than ever, modernisation of the school system is on the rise with more institutions being offered the opportunity to become academies and additional free schools opening across the UK.

Because we understand the ever changing and growing responsibilities of Financial roles in the Not For Profit and Education sectors, we are able to provide the highest calibre candidates to take organisations to the next level with inspired leadership and robust financial management.

Soundbites

“Top marks to fdu for a thoroughly professional service from a team who made me feel like I was their only Client!”

Bob Pearce, Bursar, Pipers Corner School

“fdu impressed from the outset. They worked with us closely across the whole process, helping us think about issues like the role title, salary banding, job expectations, and interview process. Their work is a testament to the value of a good search process – without fdu’s support we’d have failed to find any credible candidates, with it we had the luxury of choosing between several outstanding Candidates to find the one who would be the best fit for The National Mathematics and Science College.”

Dr Andy Kemp, Principal, National Mathematics & Science College
