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

As a small nonprofit, we are looking for support in the design of our recruitment process - brainstorming about appropriate channels, language, etc. for more successfully recruiting the diverse talent we want to attract to the organization.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a committed team ready to work on this, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the background information, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,806 , allowing us to invest right back into our mission and support program growth in targeted areas where the risk for child abuse is higher.

We are a growing child abuse prevention nonprofit hampered only by our struggle to access the right talent. While we are subject matter experts, we do not have a traditional HR/recruiter on staff and need some support thinking through the best ways to access talent.
