A Fantastic Opportunity

“Boardmatch is a fantastic opportunity for those who have always wanted to make a positive contribution in the voluntary sector but do not know where to start. It really does open up a whole new world”.

On behalf of my Board I would like to thank Boardmatch very much for their assistance. We have found it to be an excellent service. It has allowed us to fill the  skills deficits on our Board that we were unable to rectify using our other recruitment sources or from our stakeholders.

The IAF board were very impressed with the variety and calibre of candidates which came through Boardmatch and it really has resulted in boosted moral and confidence amongst our current directors. Overall there’s a great sense of excitement for the IAF in the future​!


We engaged with Boardmatch Ireland four years ago, as we wanted to recruit board directors independently. To date we have recruited 3 candidates. The directors have brought financial and retail experience to the board – skills we wanted to include on the Board. The candidates not only had the high skill levels we were looking for, but also a passion for our work with older people. Over the years they have integrated themselves as part of the board and have bought into the ethos of the charity. We will certainly be using Boardmatch’s services in the future, and I would definitely recommend their services to other charities seeking new directors.


Ability West have utilised the services of Boardmatch to recruit Board Members in recent years. We found working with Boardmatch very helpful and I am pleased to say that we were successful in recruiting a number of members to our Board of Directors over the years. The calibre of people who wish to assist voluntary organisations and offer their expertise to them is very impressive.
