To Whom It May Concern I am pleased to provide this testimonial for Mr Des Linehan, who assisted Volunteering Australia in the recent recruitment of a new Chief Executive Officer. Throughout the process Des provided a totally professional service, both in advising on the general strategy to be adopted and in the wealth of detail associated with communicating appropriately with the Board of Directors and with potential candidates. Des was particularly effective in mentoring the staff member assigned to support the process. This young person had had no previous recruitment experience. Thanks to the clear instructions from Des and his considerate approach, her participation in the process was an excellent learning experience. This resulted in high standards of communication with prospective candidates and several favourable comments from candidates on the efficiency and professionalism of the process. I am pleased to provide further comment as required.
Whom It May Concern I am pleased to provide this testimonial letter of support to Mr Des Linehan, an experienced recruiter to the Not for Profit Sector. Volunteering Australia, the peak body for volunteering in Australia, recently engaged the services of Des Linehan to facilitate the recruitment of a Chief Executive Officer for our organisation. Mr Linehan provided a very detailed and structured process for the recruitment for the CEO position. This process was followed by our board and we were pleased to see over 140 expressions of interest for the role and some 42 applications for the position. This lead to the recruitment and appointment of an excellent candidate within 8 weeks of commencing our discussions with Mr Linehan. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Des Linehan to assist in the recruitment of people for your organisation. Regards, Paul Lynch President, Board of Directors
