Conference

Top six lessons we learned at the 2017 Not-For-Profit People Conference

Another amazing Not-For-Profit People Conference under our collective belts!

It was such a pleasure for the EthicalJobs.com.au team to host over 30 speakers and more than 500 attendees over two days in November, to share ideas on recruiting, managing and retaining their staff and volunteers, and make some fantastic connection with NFP sector peers.
