They [the J&A team] are extremely thorough in their vetting of candidates, digging deeper than other firms I've worked with on the qualifications match with the position requirements. They have an impressive eye for talent and each one of the searches we've worked on together has resulted in excellent candidates to both interview and ultimately hire.

Peter Lee, Interim Executive Director

Jacqueline brings the best mix of broad industry and specific niche knowledge to her work, with a personal style and integrity that is not usually seen in her business. Jacqueline explores all the right areas needed to ensure a good fit to the position, both for the candidate and for me as a hiring manager…I would highly recommend Jacqueline to any company seeking a top-notch recruiter.”

Executive Search Services

Executive Recruiting

We intentionally recruit through a gender and equity lens. We place people with business acumen and hearts of non-profit leaders.

Our staple and the backbone of our work is finding the one, unique right person who will deliver on your mandates, work well with your board and staff, and ensures that your organization excels during this time of change and beyond.

Our key to finding the right candidate is reaching out to people who may not be seeking a change or know about your open position. People appreciate getting our calls. We engage them in a conversation and determine if their skills, experience and career trajectory are a match for your organization and the leadership position.

Our experience with people in the business and the non-profit sector, our range of relationships including personal professional relationships, clients, our current and past clients’ board members, former candidates and our Interim Executive Director pool. Our database of over 5000 is a unique advantage to your organization.

We provide both full-and-phased executive search services. We offer a guarantee on the placement of your Executive Leader for up to 12 months from the date of hire. We have never been asked to invoke our guarantee. We also guarantee once you’re a client, we will never recruit your staff.

Your mission is our mission, your organization is part of the ecosystem of our communities. Our clients will tell you we are committed to the success of non-profits before you hire us and ongoing after we place your new leader.

Interim Executive Director and Interim Director Placements
Our associates have been successful Executive Directors and leaders. They bring calm, expertise and are a bridge from the previous leader to the new. They are not candidates for the position. They love the transitional metamorphosis and can speak truth to power in a collaborative and respectful way.

Rates: Fees are competitive and based on an organization’s recruiting and consulting needs, not on a fixed formula. Our capped cost is contracted. We pride ourselves in “coming in under budget”.
