Project Details

What We Need
  • Recommendations on active and passive recruiting and proper channels to pursue candidates
  • Guidelines for hiring process, including order and number of interview rounds, reference checks, and general best practices for an inclusive interview
  • Effective interviewing techniques and clear, consistent standards for evaluating candidates
  • Tips for negotiating details such as compensation package and title
Additional Details

We need a good plan to recruit a new Executive Director & Social Media Manager.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an idea of what we need, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have job description drafts for each position, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,806 , allowing us to keep our funds dedicated to our programs

Getting a new executive director with experience will help our organization into the next phase of growth. Getting an experienced social media manager will help push our communications to our audience and grow our donors/community
