What We Do

Crawfordconnect is a retained, executive search firm that places talent exclusively in the nonprofit sector.  In our more than 15 years conducting senior searches, we have enjoyed an enviable retention rate of 98% amongst placed executives – which means we get it right the first time. By right, we mean, we get the fit, the skills and the experience right.

Our mission is to strengthen Canadian charities and nonprofits by connecting them to highly qualified, talented individuals who want to make a difference.  Why are we so passionate about our mission?  Everyday we are inspired by our clients and yet we still see so much opportunity for the non-profit sector to continue to grow to support Canada’s causes.  Because each of our team is a nonprofit expert we strive to lend our knowledge to helping this sector find the talent it deserves.

Our experience in the nonprofit sector is unprecedented.  Each of our Senior Search Consultants has a minimum of 25 years in the sector and has served in executive positions leading charitable organizations.Our contacts, deep fundraising industry knowledge and understanding of what it takes to succeed in fundraising gives us credibility when speaking with the top candidates.

Because the relationships we have with our clients and candidates is the core of our business success, we use only the most senior team to conduct the research and speak personally with candidates and referrals.
