Are you in need of new skills on your Board?
Perhaps you are looking for someone with financial expertise to assist with your fundraising strategy, or a marketing professional to help boost the profile of your organisation. Boardmatch Ireland offers a Premium Board Search service to not-for-profits in need of additional skills, perfect for organisations constrained by time and resources. Using our expertise in the area of board placement, and extensive database of professionals looking to join boards, we work on a bespoke basis for the organisation to find the right board member for them.


Organisations who have identified a need for new board members work with a dedicated Boardmatch team member who will:

  • Discuss your skills requirements with you and conduct a skills audit if necessary.
  • Agree a process.
  • Search for a candidate who fits your requirements whilst assessing their level of commitment and interest.
  • Inform potential candidates on the work of your organisation and your expectations of them.
  • Present you with a shortlist of potential candidates for interview.
  • After the process is complete, we will stay in contact to ensure that the placement is progressing well.

Boardmatch currently charge on a sliding scale for this service based on the annual turnover of your organisation.

For further information, please contact the Boardmatch office on 01 671 5005 or email Helen Behan at


“To date Social Finance Foundation have received 8 trustees through Boardmatch. We chose to continue to use the Premium Search service as our first experience had been very positive. Our existing board have been very impressed with our new trustees sourced through Boardmatch, and the new trustees have enabled us to maintain gender balance and lessen the average age of the Board.

Corporate governance is very important to Social Finance Foundation, which is under the aegis of the Department of Finance, and therefore must be of the highest standard. Investing in our board and sourcing directors through Boardmatch ensure this is the case. We would recommend the Premium Search service to other not-for-profits – primarily for the quality of candidates and also for the good quality service Boardmatch provide.”
