The Right Ethos was founded by Jonathan Dearth, our Director, who worked in the campaigning sector for 13 years, for organisations including Amnesty International, Shelter, Liberty and the World Development Movement. Jonathan’s expertise allowed him to identify the key facets of recruiting and apply them to his knowledge of campaigning and communications.

The Right Ethos was set up to recognise that people who work for campaigning organisations are motivated by justice and long term change. This motivation is what we regard as having the right ethos for working for our clients.

“The ability to effectively generate change requires a particular kind of person. A person motivated by justice, committed, persistent and resilient when under pressure. A person who doesn’t give up and believes in the causes they are campaigning for. A person with The Right Ethos.”

We see ourselves as an extension of the non-profit sector. We identify our client’s objectives and we are motivated by the challenge of providing the best person for their roles.
Our team offers a personal and flexible service working closely with our clients, and guiding our candidates throughout the recruitment process. With over 30 years’ combined experience in the charity external affairs sector, our team has the expertise and passion to make your recruitment story a successful one.
