Nonprofit & Social Impact - Executive Search

Nonprofit & Social Impact Executive Search

Mission-Driven Leadership for Nonprofits

Organizations seeking to make a difference in the world are only as effective as their impact. At CBIZ EFL Associates’ Nonprofit and Social Impact practice, we believe that transformative talent is the key to unlocking the kind of maximized impact that results in real change - delivering value to individuals, families and communities. Talented leadership can establish culture, overcome obstacles and plan for long-term success.

As experienced search practitioners, we know how to reach elusive candidates, identify untapped talent and effectively evaluate cultural fit and strategic competency. We engage in deep strategy work with our clients, getting to know their organizational structure and key stakeholders, their pressing challenges and pain points and their vision for the future. Our firm determines what knowledge, experience and skills an ideal candidate needs to possess and what success looks like in the position sought. Accordingly, we build a customized search strategy rooted in original research and discovery, and iteratively engage in our search process with the client until an ideal candidate has been placed.

With a robust understanding of how social impact organization's function, the challenges they experience and the importance of being driven by a mission, we’re able to establish a more effective, value-aligned and harmonious search partnership.
