Hiring at a nonprofit can be a little different than the private sector.
The budget for posting jobs and recruiting may be completely non-existent and hiring may not follow a set schedule.
This often leaves nonprofits with relying solely on job posts to their own website or free local listings.
While this is a good thing to do, it can be difficult for the right passion-driven candidates to realize that you are even hiring.
That’s why we have compiled this list of the 7 best nonprofit recruitment sites to post your nonprofit positions to so you are able to reach those looking to follow a nonprofit career.
