Who are we?

DRG is a talent advisory group that serves nonprofit organizations that care for, inspire, and enrich the lives of people all over the world. Our team of talent advisors shares a commitment to the values that matter to our clients, bringing more than 30 years of experience to serving the nonprofit community.

As a talent advisory group, we offer a suite of services to help nonprofits search for, attract, and nurture innovative, diverse leadership for their organizations. We also help organizations maximize their impact through talent assessments, transition planning, and by providing insights into compensation and organizational design. Our mission is to support nonprofits in bringing together the right leadership, talent, culture, and structure – so people and organizations can thrive together.

What’s the Job?

DRG Talent is continuing to build on a period of exciting growth and expansion. Currently, we are looking to hire Talent Consultants whose portfolio will focus on managing and directing the full cycle of Executive Search services in partnership with our clients.

Executive Search Engagements

Our 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 Talent Consultants work closely with our Research and Outreach Department and Senior Talent Consultants and Principals to develop search strategy, generate client deliverables, and contribute to the continuous improvement of our processes and practice.

Business Development

We expect our Talent Consultants to develop business relationships by spending structured and directed time meeting and engaging with leaders in the nonprofit community and maintaining those relationships with strong communication and follow up. 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!

DRG Teamwork

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 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.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for high-energy team players who have excellent written and verbal communication skills. Our Talent Consultants are master facilitators of complex conversations and can manage multiple engagements and projects simultaneously. They are deeply interested in and knowledgeable about the functioning and dynamics of nonprofit organizations and are equally passionate about the work of the nonprofit sector. Talent Consultants are able to develop client deliverables with acuity and have impeccable follow-up and follow-through. Our Talent Consultants must have a superior work ethic, deep curiosity, and a strong sense of accountability.

The ideal candidate possesses at least 5 years of professional experience, preferably within the nonprofit sector with experience in project management, client services, or human resources. We understand that experience comes in many forms and encourage candidates from different backgrounds to apply.
