Managing this Role


Stuart Milliner

Head of Hunter Merrifield 0207 759 7929

As Head of Hunter Merrifield, it's my role to lead the team as NFP specialist recruiters for charities and memberships. We cover roles from Director to Junior in Fundraising, HR/Office Support, Marketing and Comms.

My personal background before becoming a recruiter was a 6-year period working in the charity sector. Based in Cornwall, I worked for two South West charities as an Engagement worker and Manager. The charities focused their efforts on working with children and young people from disaffected and vulnerable backgrounds on a one-to-one basis.

As a recruiter, I have spent the vast proportion of my time as a Fundraising specialist. With my background in the sector, I had an immediate connection to the charities I have worked with and understood the demands on them. Charities and Memberships are no different to the largest corporates where they need and desire the best talent available. My favourite part of the job is checking in with people I have placed into a job after a period, and finding out how much of an impact they have made to their charity. Given the roles I recruit, this usually mean they are impacting lives in a positive way and their efforts are helping others who need the support.

Hunter Merrifield are pleased to work with a fantastic children's research charity to find a Trusts and Statutory Manager lead on the delivery of a robust portfolio of Trusts and foundations, to support statutory funding bids, and support the wider Partnerships team on corporate grants and foundations.
