Talent Acquisition: Professional Search

We’re pairing social impact organizations with the mission-driven talent they need to grow.

Nonprofit HR matches skilled professionals with full-time opportunities at social impact organizations across the country. Your organization may not be hiring right now, but our experienced recruiters are. We’ll find your organization’s next hire before you even know you need them. Nonprofit HR works with both nonprofits and mission-driven organizations that are committed to making an impact on the social sector.


We have a pulse on the availability and emergence of social impact talent and talk with candidates daily. Our relationships with both active and passive candidates are an advantage your organization will appreciate when it comes time to scale or fill an existing role.

Our search experts can be present during the planning stages of your recruitment process to gain the critical information required to make the placement a success. Then, we’ll save you time and money as our recruiters drill down to the top candidates for your specific needs. Why screen 200+ resumes when we can connect you with a curated selection of candidates who match the exact skillsets and experience you’re seeking?

Our entire approach to talent acquisition is comprehensive because we support social impact organizations while also building up communities of qualified, mission-driven candidates. 

The Search team is knowledgeable, responsive, and are committed to finding the right person for our organization. This was especially critical in hiring an HR Director with the breadth and depth of experience to come into a small HR dept, but a complex organization.

Adding Value to Your Talent Search

Every organization has unique talent needs, but it can be difficult to evaluate a prospective candidate’s fit using traditional tactics alone. That’s why we’ve partnered with PDA International.

The PDA assessment:

  • Identifies the critical thinking, business, persuasive and leadership skills of candidates
  • Measures candidate motivation and behavioral fit
