How We’re Different

In comparison to some traditional search firms that collect position requirements up front and then return a few months later with a few finalists from which you have to choose, we work in partnership with our clients throughout the entire search process, sharing candidates on a rolling basis and discussing strategy through weekly check-ins. This approach allows us to respond quickly and effectively to our clients’ changing needs, as well as to leverage the real-time nature of the candidate market.

Who We Support

Our services are specifically designed for results-driven, growth-oriented, creative and innovative nonprofits and socially-driven businesses. We connect the very best talent with these organizations so that they can achieve even greater social impact.
