“Building a successful fundraising team relies on the quality of staff and the recruitment process. I have always believed in a thorough process to ensure the best fit for both the organisation and for the candidate. I’ve been fortunate to work with Michelle Varcoe from Gembridge over a number of years who has undoubtedly helped me recruit a number of high performing team members. Michelle goes that extra mile to find the best short-list of candidates that not only fit the role brief and our team culture, but also meet my high expectations. Michelle delivers results, has integrity and keeps me informed across the entire recruitment assignment. Her extensive knowledge and networks across the fundraising and the not-for-profit sector clearly play a role in her success. I highly recommend Michelle and the Gembridge team.” – Carl Young – Philanthropy and Fundraising Director, Peter Mac
“Michelle’s professionalism and integrity is second to none. Gembridge have successfully worked alongside us to produce stellar candidates and place staff that both personally and strategically align with our vision and passion. I cannot recommend Michelle and Gembridge more highly.” – Karen McComiskey, Head of Fundraising, Brotherhood of St Laurence
“Michelle has done an outstanding job recruiting and placing our two most recent hires – Gifts in Wills Manager and Fundraising Specialist. Michelle’s passion, deep sector knowledge and insights gave me confidence from the outset that she would secure exactly the right candidates – and she hasn’t disappointed! Michelle is a consummate professional who has helped The Alfred Foundation build a stellar team. She’s bright, friendly and knows her stuff – highly recommended.” – Patrick Baker, Director The Alfred Foundation
