Retained Executive Search

To bring top staff to institutions of higher learning, health care providers, foundations and nonprofits, CapDev's executive search division delivers the most innovative and in-depth search services, combining our knowledge of leaders in the nonprofit sector with our proven process to ensure the best-qualified candidates.

Networking & Original Research

In addition to our extensive internal resume database of highly skilled professionals, we continually reach out to nonprofit professionals and network with targeted organizations to build a customized candidate pool, adding fresh contacts for every search.

Organizational Compatibility Assessments

Because it is vital to the success of the organization to ensure a successful match and a positive working relationship, once a preliminary fit is determined, clients may elect to give candidates a brief pre-employment corporate personality screening test that will measure job fit and organizational compatibility.

Candidate Screening & Selection

The CapDev screening process is multi-tiered to filter candidates for appropriate experience, education and skill sets to meet clients' needs. First, through phone interviews, CapDev helps to determine fit with the organization's mission, management style and culture; secondly, we share all information pertaining to the candidates in an easy-to-review format; and finally present a select group of top candidates to leadership for personal interviews.

Reference & Background Checks

Professional independent reference and criminal background checks are always conducted. CapDev will also tap into our networking database to conduct "backdoor" reference checks for a well-rounded view of the candidate.

"You all made us feel like we were your #1 client."
