At Cause Leadership we believe an exclusive retained executive search and recruitment partner works best for most nonprofit organizations. 

Unlike other search and recruitment firms that do not understand the charitable sector, we do because we work in the sector all the time. You get first-hand knowledge and relationships with the kind of candidates you are looking for.

Our goal is to transform the way recruiters, employers and job seekers connect and improve the hiring and recruiting process for everyone involved.
