DRG Talent is continuing to build on a period of exciting growth and expansion. Currently, we are looking to hire a Senior Talent Consultant – a current/former head of an independent school – whose portfolio will focus on managing and directing the full cycle of Executive Search services in partnership with our clients, with a focus on our independent schools practice.
Executive Search Engagements
Our Senior Talent Consultants play an integral role in advancing simultaneous search engagements to reach successful completion. At any point during a given week, you might be engaged in strategic conversations with a client about the direction of their organization, partner with search committees and board members to build a customized search strategy, interview candidates to assess their skills and competencies, or provide ongoing consultation to our clients around their talent challenges, needs, goals, and strategies. Our Senior Talent Consultants work closely with our Research and Outreach Department and Principals to develop search strategy, generate client deliverables, and contribute to the continuous improvement of our processes and practice.
Talent Advisory Engagements
Our Senior Talent Consultants may also support our talent advisory projects for our clients, which could include providing direct consultation in DRG’s core focus areas, including organizational design and alignment; transition and succession planning; talent integration; compensation analysis and strategy; individual and team assessment, development, and effectiveness; organizational culture and engagement; board effectiveness; and diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism. Our Senior Talent Consultants develop and present innovative, engaging learning opportunities for clients and partners throughout the sector. You’ll also partner with internal and external stakeholders to develop, refine, and continuously improve DRGs products, services, tools, and value propositions.
We expect our Senior Talent Consultants to develop business relationships by spending structured and directed time meeting and engaging with leaders in the independent school and nonprofit community and maintaining those relationships with strong communication and follow-up. Senior Talent Consultants will also play an important role in our continuous mapping of talent needs in the nonprofit sector. We know everyone brings their own special flair to this—we will help you build your skills, focus your strategy, and develop your voice!
Over the past five years, we have seen tremendous growth and have broadened our scope of work well beyond Executive Search. Although this position is focused primarily on Executive Search, our entire team collaborates on company-wide projects, learning, professional development, and experiences designed to strengthen our company. We provide our team members with opportunities to develop themselves, their work, and their investment in our collective mission.
