Helping charities and businesses develop and implement organisational strategies that focus on identifying and recruiting the best talent in the sector to secure success.
I'm Imogen Ward and I run AAW's People and Organisational Development practice.
I am the main contact for AAW's seach services. Alongside my AAW partners, as someone who has been a trustee, a CEO and a Fundraising and Communications Director involved in recruiting, building high performing teams and delivering exceptional results, I wanted to set up a search agency that provides the sort of service I would have valued working in those roles.
When AAW was created just over two years ago, Mark Imogen and Tobin wanted to be sure that they were filling a gap - that they were not just repllicating the services provided by other consultancy and search agencies.
