Our executive search process can be defined in a single word: matchmaking.
We understand that a job is a relationship involving two parties, so we use a series of tools and processes to measure personalities and assess cultural fit beyond the resume.
How do we do it?

ASSESS & DEFINE
We don’t just give you what you want, we give you what you need. By looking at the broad scope of the organization (where you are and where you want to go), stakeholder input, and using our extensive knowledge of the sector and strategic planning experience, we help you refine the job description, posting strategy, and candidate expectations.
RECRUIT & SOURCE
Let’s be honest, you’re using us for our network, and we’re okay with that! With more than 100 years of combined non-profit experience, we leverage our networks, use the latest recruiting software, and tailor our messaging to each prospective candidate, to search and source the most qualified leaders. The result? An over 60% response rate on Linked-In Recruiter—seven times the industry average.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
Envision Consulting is committed to DEI. In fact, we are often hired because we integrate diversity throughout our process. Our blind, objectives-based scoring methodology employs industry best standards to reduce subjective bias, resulting in 90% of our finalist panels being comprised of candidates with diverse backgrounds.
INTERVIEW & ANALYZE
This is where our experience as non-profit leaders gives us an edge. Through conducting a tiered series of comprehensive phone and face-to-face interviews—culminating in our signature (and frankly, awesome) executive panel, we ask the key questions that determine whether or not a candidate fits both the needs of the position and into the culture of the organization.
AFTER THE HIRE
Once you’ve settled on your new hire, our work still isn’t done. Our unique position as nonprofit strategists enables us to provide valuable on-boarding and organizational coaching designed to help your new hire and leadership team get off to a successful start.
