Putting purpose front and centre
As the social impact sector continues to evolve, the demand for diverse leadership with the vision and skill to put social purpose at the centre of organisational success has never been higher. Charities and civil society organisations need to demonstrate the impact of and need for their work more than ever, requiring optimum leadership with the appropriate resources and clear passion to be as effective as possible.
In response to changing public attitudes, progressively minded businesses are moving past rhetoric to genuinely engage with the social purpose they can deliver while the public sector and growing philanthropic initiatives are learning how to improve their roles in catalysing and propagating these efforts. Partnership and collaboration, shared learning and co-operation, joined up thought leadership and impact measurement are all in the ascendency as we seek to address our social, environmental and economic challenges.

Navigating the intersection to find the right leaders
We are inclusion specialists, exceptionally proud of our industry-recognised and evidence-based track record of diversifying boards and senior teams.
Saxton Bampfylde has decades of experience advising clients and finding leaders in the intersection between the civil society, private and public sectors. We work with the Boards and senior executive leadership of charitable and wider not-for-profit organisations whether broadly focused and specialised, UK or international, large and start up; foundations and grant giving organisations; purpose driven commercial organisations; social enterprises; and the many organisations that provide thought leadership, advisory services and support in this space.
Bringing forward passionate and diverse Board Leaders
Senior board appointments require a highly targeted, personalised search to identify appropriately qualified senior leaders, and it is essential that each of them is then approached by an articulate and well-informed advisor. Through our dedicated board practice, we appoint over 250 chair and non-executive roles every year: our networks give us extensive reach across sectors, and deep insights into the challenges – and opportunities – faced by boards today.
Developing high-performing boards
Saxton Bampfylde has the expertise and experience to provide chairs with the comprehensive insight they need to run an effective board, having led governance reviews at both executive and non-executive level. Our review process is designed to be relatively light-touch, allowing boards to comply fully with governance recommended practice and providing data and practical recommendations that can be used to improve board/team effectiveness, maximise strengths, and tackle weaknesses. Our view is structured around a tried and tested model, but can be adapted to specific organisational needs.
