Nonprofit Hiring
 Made Certain

Faster. More Certain. Less Expensive...Pick Three.

The Results-Based Hiring® Process is faster, more certain, and far less expensive than the costly approaches found elsewhere. You will be protected by our industry-leading 18 month replacement guarantee. (But you probably won’t need it. We've placed over 800 people and over 85% of them were still hard at work for our clients more than 3 years later.) We support you with Evidence-Based Interviewing practices that fairly assess candidates during video interviews, reduce bias throughout the hiring process, and build diverse teams. 

We conduct executive searches in Washington, DC and nationwide, in every functional area and for every career level — primarily for nonprofits. Our clients say we’re disciplined and strategic in our approach. This video briefly outlines our candidate recruiting process, and this post outlines the services we believe a modern executive search firm should offer.

Starting today means you'll be interviewing candidates in:

Vice President and C-Level searches: 7 weeks


Director Level searches: 6 weeks


Manager and Specialist Level searches: 5 weeks

What Nonprofit Leaders Say About Us

We turned to Staffing Advisors for a critical position, and Bob and Aileen brought a creative and successful approach from day one. They asked a lot of questions to understand what kinds of candidates would work best for us. They also focused on both sides of the relationship (both the hiring manager and the candidates) in ways that other firms don’t. The Staffing Advisors approach was both strategic (they took the long view) and tactical (they understood that we needed the role filled on a timeline). They also made the effort to understand both our business need and our organizational culture. Whether you are a hiring manager or a candidate, we highly recommend their work.

As a human resources consulting firm specializing in compensation, we frequently refer our clients to Staffing Advisors for recruiting support. Staffing Advisors’ proprietary approach to recruiting is data driven and analytically rigorous – just like our approach at Keating Advisors. But what really differentiates Staffing Advisors is their expertise as it relates to diversity, equity, and inclusion. They provide clients with proven hiring practices that directly address bias through evidenced-based interviewing and other techniques.  Many of our clients rely on Staffing Advisors’ expertise and guidance to fill critical leadership and staff positions.

I felt well supported throughout our search. Ellen was very responsive, aware of our organizational needs, and communicated what was going on behind the scenes with regular updates. The dashboard of candidate information was incredibly helpful at putting everything in one place.
