Despite on-going political turmoil, 52% of non-profit employers expect to increase the number of permanent workers in their organisation, according to the latest data from non-profit recruitment specialist, TPP Recruitment.

The non-profit salary, rewards and retention survey also revealed that 33% of candidates feel their current role isn’t helping to progress their longer-term career - a 2% increase from 2018. Despite this, results indicate a slight uptick in the number of employees willing to remain in their current role, with the number of active job seekers who are planning a career move in the next 12 months decreasing year-on-year. However, those who indicated that they would move for the right role has increased by 10%, suggesting non-profit employers able to provide the right career path will be in a stronger position in the New Year.

In terms of rewards, a “higher salary” remains the number one motivator in job moves. However, “a new challenge” has replaced a “better work/life balance” as the second highest motivator. On average, salaries have increased by 1.5% in the non-profit sector. Almost a third (31%) of respondents asked for a pay rise in the last 12 months, and of those 36% were unsuccessful.

Commenting on the data, COO at TPP Recruitment, Tracey George, said:

“It’s fantastic to see that the non-profit sector is resilient in the face of such political adversity. Seeing salaries increase, although it may be marginal, is a positive sign. While pay is a big motivator for professionals across all functions, it’s vital that non-profit organisations are capitalising on individuals’ desire for greater challenges and offering rewards in line with what workforces want. There is already an acute skills shortage within charities, and it’s important that employers are not only holding on to valuable talent, allowing them to progress and develop their careers within the sector, but also using examples of staff progression to attract top talent and meet headcount increase expectations.”
