One problem facing Australian charity organisations today is the difficulty in sourcing a labour supply with the right mix of skills.
For many smaller non-profits, the process is usually limited to placing an ad in the local newspaper or online through posting services such as Gumtree.
The trouble with this scenario is the readerships of such publications are not necessarily focused on providing their experience to a charity - they may be more concerned with other areas.
However, this may be set to change with the arrival of a new online channel that is dedicated to matching skilled applicants with worthy causes according to the roles available.
Non Profit Careers allows experienced professionals to sign up and offer their services to a range of organisations, while charities are encouraged to enter their details and list their needs through a dedicated online portal.
Due for launch on November 1, the new careers hub will help to provide more efficient connections between giving individuals and worthy causes.
Seeing as charities help to employ over 700,000 workers and account for nearly 6 per cent of Australia's gross domestic product, an improvement in skill allocation is sure to be a welcome change.
