Appreciating that nonprofits must prioritize resources for service delivery, and particularly during this time as COVID-19 impacts budgets in an unprecedented way, Pearl Street offers component search services allowing clients to custom build their search process by matching our services to their specific needs, capacities, and budgets. In this way, we form a close working partnership that lets us share resources, leverage existing abilities among staff and board members, and reduce the overall cost of talent acquisition.
Together, we identify the components of the search that are of the greatest value to your organization. A formal Statement of Work outlining the activities for each component and total cost is established.
DISCOVERY & PREPARATION
Component activities include defining the role and writing the position description, holding stakeholder conversations, and crafting the research strategy.
CLIENT INTERVIEWING & PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Component activities include arranging client interviews, managing feedback from all parties, and continuing to transparently steward the candidate on your behalf.
RECRUITING & INTERVIEWING
Component activities include launching an outreach campaign, attracting talent to the opportunity, and fully interviewing and presenting a diverse slate of candidates.
REFERENCES, OFFER & CLOSE
Component activities include professional reference checks to validate the candidate's accomplishments and identify what you need to do to set them up for long-term success. We set expectations and negotiate terms of an offer, and then carefully transition the relationship into your hands.
