What our clients are saying

  • The International Rescue Committee found Mission Talent’s services to be of a highly professional calibre. Finding a qualified person for a technically demanding job in a challenging location was handled capably. The selected candidate pleased The IRC and has successfully assumed the role Chief of Party for an ambitious and high-profile project.

  • Mission Talent recruited me for my new role with Greenpeace. I wasn’t actively searching for a new position, but Emily convinced me to explore the opportunity and put my name forward. Throughout the hiring process she was extremely professional, running smooth logistics across multiple time zones. I felt that I got a very honest assessment of the role, helping me ease into the new position and I would 100% recommend Emily and Mission Talent to run your staff searches.

  • We hired Katja from Mission Talent to lead the recruitment for a senior position at the Foundation. The timeline was very short, only a few weeks. Through her network, she was able to produce high quality candidates in a few weeks, which was impressive. Overall, we were very satisfied with the results. Katja is knowledgeable in the area of international development, trustworthy and professional. Hope to work with her again in the future. We highly recommend her.

  • We have worked with Katja and her team at Mission Talent on two important, senior searches. We were conscious that looking for medically qualified people who could also offer programme management experience meant that such candidates were likely to be in considerable demand from other organisations. Thanks to Mission Talent, we have filled our roles with specialists who we believe will make a valuable contribution to ARK’s work.”

  • There is nothing but compliments when recalling my time working with Mission Talent. It was my first time being approached by a recruiting company and I’m glad it was Lin who assisted me throughout the process – being very professional, reliable and hardworking. I am very thankful for Mission Talent’s support and to get to where I am today. (2020)

  • Emily recruited me into my current position and it was great to work with her and the team at Mission Talent. She took time to understand my profile and coach me so I was well prepared for the panel interviews. She truly cares about international development and supporting international NGOs to hire innovative leaders. I would definitely recommend Mission Talent to any organization looking to increase their access to executive talent, especially women leaders.

  • Our experience working with Mission Talent in our global search for Board Directors was very positive. They grasped and understood our organization, what we stand for and what we needed and the fantastic pool of candidates presented to us reflects the importance of their thorough assessment that informs their search criteria.

  • After having failed twice to attract the right candidate on our own, Mission Talent’s help finally enabled us to fill this demanding position. Candidates explicitly mentioned that they were impressed with your professional, friendly and supportive approach. My team and I were equally impressed with your quick understanding of what we need and your effective help in finding the most suitable candidate.

  • Crossroads International hired Mission Talent to recruit two directors and it was so professional and efficient! Emily was very collaborative, she clearly understood our precise needs, and during all the recruitment process we had an amazing support. I experienced both sides, being recruited by Mission Talent for the Executive Director position and, recruiting our Program Director with their support. I strongly recommend Mission Talent.

  • I highly recommend Mission Talent. I have worked with Mission Talent for several years now both in finding a position for myself as an NGO professional as well as in hiring talent for positions in the NGO I am Country Director for. Mission Talent does an excellent job on all sides trying to make the situation a win-win for all concerned. Katja is caring, very helpful, a clear, transparent and honest communicator and above all delivers results.

  • I would say one of Mission Talent’s strongest points is how they prepared candidates with continuous feedback and detailed information along the process, and Lin is at the centre of this excellent support. From the start, Lin carefully listens and learns the detailed background of the candidate. To some extent, unleash the hidden potential that the candidate didn’t even realize yet. I thank Lin and Mission Talent’s team for all the kind support.

  • This was my first experience being recruited by an external, third-party, organization, and I had really no idea what to expect. However, I was very impressed with the way Emily from Mission Talent handled our initial conversations, and then how ably Anabella made herself available for my many follow-up questions. I spoke glowingly of Mission Talent to many colleagues here in Latin America.

I can recommend their services without reservation, to colleagues both in the private and public sectors.

  • Katja has helped my organisation find professionals, from different countries and with different language-backgrounds in Southern Africa, to work in our Lilongwe/Malawi office. She was very easy to communicate with, understood what we wanted and was very flexible. We thank her for bringing in some very good candidates whom we will build our team with.

  • I was hired as Executive Director of an exciting international organization. The process was competitive, with several rounds of interviews. From the very beginning, I found Anabella to be professional yet sensitive to both parties. She demonstrated a clear knowledge of the NGO world, and the particular skill sets needed for this type of organization. However, she also had a very keen cultural competency skills and understood the idiosyncrasies that come with being a candidate who is a woman of color. The process was intense but I felt very supported throughout it all.

  • I had the pleasure to work with Lin Ratriningsih from Mission Talent on a number of recruitments out of South East Asia. Lin was always very thorough in her preparations and responsive to operational changes, ensuring timely updates and information flow. Lin is very approachable and easy to work with. She is determined to deliver the best possible results and will give a sound recruitment in different countries, be it about talent pool, potential, market value and other relevant factors.

Their support has proven to be very valuable to us and I can highly recommend both Lara and Mission Talent to any NGO in the area of (senior level) recruitment.

  • I have maintained contact with Mission Talent since 2008, and I find them to be highly professional in approach and process. Most specifically, Katja is very flexible, knowledgeable and supportive, as well as determined. She kept me abreast of developments during my job search and encouraged me when an interview outcome was not favourable. Katja is very diligent and focused in her interviews, bringing out critical thinking. I have recommended Mission Talent to many of my friends.

  • Mission Talent was an invaluable partner in our search for a new Executive Director at All Out. Katja led the process, and managed all of the moving parts throughout.
