Development Guild DDI’s strategic framework provides a lens for understanding how individual professionals and collective teams can advance both your organization’s mission and its leadership within the field. This is particularly true for organizations seeking eminently qualified and talented candidates in fundraising, finance, communications, and other specialized areas who may not be actively in the job market.
We pride ourselves on our rigorous, fair, and transparent approach, which extends from in-depth research and a multi-layered vetting of candidates to the shaping of a customized decision-making process that positions you – and your ideal candidate – for success from day one. Each search engagement begins with a focused, strategic assessment that is designed to present clients and candidates with a fully developed opportunity while ensuring internal alignment at every step of the way.
We keep a finger on the pulse of multiple industries so that we can anticipate and respond to marketplace dynamics and trends, recognize when and how that market is shifting, and locate highly qualified candidates who may not be contemplating a career change. Whether your search involves a CEO, CFO, vice president of development, or director of communications, the end result is a powerful connection between an extraordinary organization and an exceptional leader, who achieves a lasting, positive impact.
