How our Recruitment Outsourcing process works:

Listen and Understand

At the onset of every Recruitment Outsourcing engagement, we take the time to build a deep understanding of the organization’s mission and structure, workforce strategies, and most of all, its culture. Before we begin seeking talent for any open position, we’ll have in-depth conversations about the most critical challenges facing your organization. Our discussions will cover the positions or departments that require immediate attention; how you onboard new hires; cultural, management and interpersonal dynamics and more.


When it comes time to fill an open position, we leverage our own proprietary database of more than 10,000 nonprofit professionals, social media platforms and geographic-specific networks to identify qualified talent based on your needs and preferences. Recruitment strategies are highly customized for each organization and each open position. We also continually interview prospective candidates (passive and active) from a variety of verticals and work to build a pipeline of high-performing talent.

Candidate Skills Evaluation and Assessment

Nonprofit HR conducts thorough initial evaluations of potential candidates using a combination of phone, in-person, video and behavioral-based interviewing techniques. We also use the online tool SkillCheck™ to assess a wide variety of skills and competencies required for each position. Additional online skills assessment tools are available for use with select positions.

Candidate Screening

Following initial interviews and relevant assessments, we identify the most qualified candidates for presentation. A short, descriptive candidate profile overview is developed, which we pass on to your hiring decision makers. We also send along each candidate’s resumé, the results of any skills assessments and a Hiring Tool Kit customized for your organization. We then facilitate candidate interviews with your hiring manager or other decision makers in alignment with your organization’s hiring practices.

Due Diligence

Once we’ve narrowed the candidate pool down to a shortlist of finalists, we conduct comprehensive reference checks and background screenings (including social media footprint analysis, criminal record checks, credit report analysis, education and academic verification and employment history verification). We strictly adhere to standards around fair hiring and compliance issues throughout the hiring process.

Onboarding and Post-Search Support

When you’re ready to make an offer, Nonprofit HR will handle all communication and compensation package negotiation and benefits enrollment processes with your selected candidate. Then, once your new team member is on board, our Recruitment Outsourcing team with partner with your HR staff or hiring managers to ensure the new hire is onboarded effectively, in a way that supports employee engagement, productivity and your organization’s practices and culture.

Nonprofit HR values diversity and inclusion.
