Organizational Background and Context
DB&A Executive Search and Recruitment serves the non-profit and ministry community in the areas of retained executive search and recruitment, as well as strategy consulting and coaching. Our clients are primarily faith-based non-profits and Christian ministries, and our own personal callings drive every member of our team to serve with excellence those who are meeting critical needs both at home and around the world.
Our firm is closely related to our sister firm, DickersonBakker – sharing certain resources and a common history - while remaining separate entities. At DB&A, we trace our roots back to 35+ years of development and fundraising consulting. Most if not all our consultants come from positions of non-profit and ministry leadership themselves, and we are each driven by our values, skills and experience to advance the missions of our partners.
Though emanating from the DickersonBakker consulting heritage, which remains largely fundraising and development focused, DB&A Executive Search and Recruitment is a full-service retained search firm specializing in recruiting top talent for our world-class partners across all areas of non-profit leadership, including senior executives and all C-suite positions, as well as Vice President and Director-level recruitments. Roughly 45% of our searches remain in the development and fundraising space while the majority of our searches cover the full range of other non-profit and ministry functions.
As our team has grown and we establish new offices in key markets, we are seeking a Manager of Search Operations (MSO). The MSO will serve our team of regionally dispersed consultants through a variety of critical back-office and client-communication responsibilities. Our ideal candidate will align with the values of our clients while being gifted in administration and communications.
