We are very proud of our firm’s 60-year history but, in a constantly changing world, understand that the passion and professionalism of today’s team and performance is all that matters.
Our operations are delivered by an experienced team of Senior Consultants, led by our Managing Director, Paul Molloy.
Our leadership team’s track record in specialist consulting and the longer term direction and supervision of fundraising campaigns across annual fundraising, capital campaigns and legacy promotion drives is second to none.
We invest in the training, accreditation and ongoing professional development of our team of 50 fundraising consultants, campaign managers and special advisors. We offer them shares in and ownership of our firm (which, we think, make a big difference to performance).
We are founding members of the Association of Fundraising Consultants (AFC) and the only European member of the American Association of Fundraising Consultants (The Giving Institute). We are advocates and key supporters of the Washington-based Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE). Our senior consultants all become CFRE certified and submit to a rigorous re-accreditation process every three years.
We are privileged to be able to call upon the additional experience and quiet soundings of an exclusive network of past client leaders, philanthropists, major grant makers and philanthropic advisors whose knowledge can help to fine tune project proposals and the feasibility of fundraising plans.
We recognise how difficult the employment market has become for young graduates and, in response, have developed a paid internship programme. Over 30 graduates have passed through the Compton internship programme. Half of these interns advanced to full employment with Compton. Others, with our support, have found jobs elsewhere.
We are constantly looking for talent to grow and enhance our team. Whether you are a young graduate looking for your first opportunity, a professional fundraiser looking for a change, or an experienced relationship manager from another sector, we may have opportunities for you with Compton or our client network.
