Value for money: Trends in management recruitment in Australian not-for-profit community service organisations
In a new funding context, some Australian organisations have made publicstatements defining themselves in corporate terms and there is evidence thatthis has shaped a new approach to executive recruitment. An analysis of jobadvertisements over a three-year period (from March 2002 to May 2004)shows that many non-profit community service organisations do not mentiontheir values or mission in recruitment advertising and instead emphasise acorporate orientation. In these advertisements it is also made clear that theyrequire - and are willing to competitively reimburse - those that share thiscorporate orientation. This alludes to significant cultural change within theAustralian non-profit community services sector and holds significantimplications not only for the direction of these organisations but forcommunity-worker job satisfaction. It is also likely to impact the relationshipbetween these non-profit organisations and the clients and communities theyserve.
