About the organiser

Organised by
Boardmatch Ireland

Boardmatch is the only Irish charity that specialises in charity board recruitment.

We match individuals that are looking to volunteer their time and skills at board level, with charities and not-for-profits that have board and committee vacancies.

We believe the right balance of skilled voluntary trustees provides a not-for-profit with the necessary skills to respond to changes, meet the challenges of the sector and to achieve their strategic objectives.

Boardmatch does this primarily through:

  • A FREE online matching service matching individuals from the corporate/public sectors to Not-For-Profit boards.
  • A bespoke Premium Board Search service for not-for-profit organisations.
  • Developing and providing training packages and other supports for boards.

Our core objective is building the governance capacity of not-for-profit boards. We have over 1,000 not-for-profits registered with us and have placed over 3,000 candidates onto not-for-profit boards.
