IT jobs in the charity sector

With the charitable, voluntary and not for profit sector in generating over £20bn every year in the UK and employing over half a million people in more than 150,000 organisations, demand for people with professional skills is at an all-time high.

The Third Sector as it is commonly known ranges from well-known associations such as Oxfam and NSPCC to membership and trade associations, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum to and the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industry.

Considering the Top 50 Charities in the UK in terms of their income, since December 2006 the revenue of these Top 50 has been in excess of £86.2billion, with the highest earning charity, the Gavi Fund Affiliate, taking an income of over £1.5 billion.

There is a growing movement of IT professionals who want to spend more of those hours at work doing a job that makes the world a better place, whether that means within their local communities or on a global scale. There is no doubt that a career with the not-for-profits can be rewarding and stimulating and can offer an employee the chance to shape our future.

Within the Charitable marketplace there are niche skills always in demand such as Raisers Edge, however all other standard ICT skills are in demand, from Helpdesk through to Programme Managers and CTO’s.
