Non-Profit Executive Recruiting
We’re experts at finding top-level executives for non-profits.
High level positions within non-profit organizations are very specialized – which means finding leadership for your organization can pose a great challenge. Our expertise and experience can fill that void. We work with non-profit organizations to locate qualified senior-level and C-suite positions including CEOs, COOs, and CFOs. And we work closely with you to understand your organization’s specific needs, culture, and goals. We use that essential knowledge to design a customized search plan that will yield the best results. Once you retain us for your executive search, our process includes research, advertising, candidate identification, interviewing, reference checking, and offer negotiations.
The three phases of our client relationships offer a solid groundwork for success.
PHASE ONE – DISCOVERY
We start by meeting and getting to know the key members of the team, operating in a spirit of inclusion to help ease the transition of leadership. This phase often provides critical information relevant to their perspective of the position and culture.
PHASES TWO – TALENT MAPPING; CANDIDATE DEVELOPMENT AND ASSESSMENT
During phase two, the project is external in nature and includes the research to identify appropriate and viable prospects. We then begin connecting with those individuals to determine who shall be presented as candidates in the slate of potential hires. Every search assignment has a dedicated research associate whose work is guided by our customized research strategy.
PHASES THREE – SELECT, SECURE AND ASSIMILATE
During phase three we are well underway with formal interviews involving the hiring manager and have a good sense of finalists. A “score card” is prepared and presented to the interviewing panelists designed to benchmark and score the mission critical competencies identified in the discovery portion of the project. Ultimately this phase leads to securing the selected individual through offer negotiations, acceptance, and transition discussions.
