More About Boardmatch

Boardmatch Ireland supports the development of the community and voluntary sector (the not-for-profit sector) by strengthening boards and management committees.

Boardmatch does this primarily through:

  • Building links between corporate, public and not-for-profit sectors, by encouraging people from corporate and public sectors to sit on not-for-profit boards.
  • Enhancing skills sets on not-for-profit boards.
  • Developing and providing training packages and other supports for boards and board members.
  • Building the governance capacity of not-for-profit boards.

Boardmatch Ireland provides a web-based matching service where people can register their interest in volunteering on not-for-profit boards. These candidates are then matched, based on location, skills and preferred area of interest, to not-for-profit organisations who have also registered their board opportunities.

Boardmatch Ireland also provides bespoke supports to boards of not-for-profit organisations through its Training and Executive Search services.
