Successfully recruiting fundraisers month after month
I have successfully recruited 17 key fundraising positions for charities since January 2018.
I specialise in making the connection which goes way beyond matching the Job Description and the CV.
I have an ever increasing network of committed, passionate and talented people who are looking to step up to a new fundraising challenge and help your charity raise more funds.
I work in a consultative and collaborative way and will work really hard to get to know your charity, understand your wider team and your working culture. I will spend an intensive half-day or day with your charity getting to know and understand your values, culture, how everything operates, who’s who, what the needs are and what kind of candidate your charity is looking for. I would meet with whoever your charity deems appropriate - staff, Trustees, lay leaders, volunteers and/or recipients.
I work with you to get a thorough understanding of the role you’re recruiting for, where it sits in your organisation and precisely what sort of person you’re looking for before we start our search.
I then carefully select and meet all candidates and will only ever present people to you who have the right skill set, share your values and will fit into your organisation.
This is a personal bespoke service as I understand the needs of organisations and in particular the charity sector where I have worked in the past 30 years. My many years as Fundraising Director for UJIA has given me a real advantage in knowing what to look for in a fundraising professional and I have recruited many excellent Fundraisers.

Recommendations from charities
Chief Exceutive, Nightingale Hammerson
I chose David above other recruiters because we believed he most understood and articulated what we were looking for. I therefore felt confident that he would successfully filter candidates to avoid wasting our time. He took the time to not only research our organisation but to come and spend time here to understand the culture and the less tangible pros and cons for candidates to consider. He provided a steady flow of high quality candidates that met the criteria we had set – not easy in the challenging area of fundraising.
Chief Exceutive, Tel Aviv University Trust
Yes, we got there in the end…thank you! You made a process that can be very daunting, unusually straightforward and stress-free. Working with you I know made all the difference in finding the best person for this job...not only finding candidates but screening them thoroughly was really essential. I think the way you met the key players at the Trust and stressed character and personality was so important in getting the right fit with whomever we hired.
Operations Manager, Chana UK
As Chana grew in recent years, we realised it was time for us to recruit a full time Fundraiser to assist us with our ongoing growth. We turned to David for some advice and guidance. David guided us through the process – assisting us with writing the job description to finding us a suitable client. Throughout the process David really did all he could to make sure we found the best candidate suited for our position – he understood all of our requirements and ensured all candidates he suggested were suitable.
JACALYN SANK DACOSTA
Fundraising Director, UJIA
We have been delighted to work with David Goldberg to help us recruit a great person to fill a recent fundraising role. David really gets to understand the charity and its needs in order to find the right person to work there. He thinks “outside the box” in looking for interesting and skilled candidates.
Chief Executive, Magen David Adom UK
I have known David for a number of years and was delighted when he was able to provide recruitment advice for me. I briefed David on the role and type of person I was looking for, met with the candidate and within a matter of weeks, he was appointed to the role of Fundraising Manager. It was the easiest role I had filled.
