Charities & CIPHR

With functional, auditable recruitment, visibility of training processes on one system and diverse work patterns to support any position, CIPHR caters specifically to the HR challenges that charities face.

Sova were looking for a HR solution which promised long-term viability and met with tight budget constraints. After undergoing a strategy review, they decided to focus on management information, self-service and notifications.

“With CIPHR implemented we are better placed to provide strategic HR insights to the board. It is definitely the most intuitive HR system I have ever used and I would recommend it to any other charity.” – Sova

How CIPHR helps our Charity customers

Employ and retain the right candidates in the safest way

Achieve full visibility of the recruitment process through online application forms which streamline necessary checks, references and questions, to ensure that the appropriate candidates are employed and safeguarding obligations are met. Our easy to read report applications allow you to identify discrepancies and gaps in employment, whilst all statements and disclosures can be published to enforce candidate acceptance to meet safeguarding obligations.

Diverse work patterns and contracts

Easily manageable contracts and working patterns can be created for all types of employees, providing the flexibility needed from volunteers and trainees to managers.

“We have quite a lot of sessional workers and their continuity of services only kick starts when they become a contracted employee. Despite this and other idiosyncrasies of our sector, CIPHR has proved a very logical, intuitive system.” – Sova


Reduce time consuming administrative tasks by automating reminders and notifications, including return to work interviews, starter and leaver notifications, appraisal reminders and end of probation periods. Our customers within the charity sector have used notifications to inform staff when DBS checks are due to expire and when references have not been returned.

“CIPHR Notifications calculates from the length of service when it needs to send appropriate documentation to HR, staff members and area managers. CIPHR Notifications is a huge help to us and has been instrumental in changing the way we work, for the better. With CIPHR we are able to take a more strategic approach to the business, delivering the right information at the right time.” – Sova

“CIPHR notifications have reduced the initial time spent reminding employees to submit certain information which has been helpful and had a measurable reduction in HR time” – Feedback from a charity in our 2014 Customer Satisfaction survey
