Executive Search for International NGOs

Using the executive search process that we have developed specifically for the non-profit and social enterprise sectors, DRiWaterstone has guided a wide variety of international NGOs—from Global Fund for Children to Operation Smile to Project HOPE—to identify transformative staff at all levels.

DRiWaterstone searches deliver high-quality candidates—people who are passionately driven by the international development mission and who drive relentlessly toward results—within 60 days. But as experts in the sector, we believe that we have an obligation to deliver much more than that. Our founders created an executive search process designed to meet the short- and long-term needs of the non-profit and social enterprise sectors. As one of the most effective search firms in the country, we pledge to recruit only those people who meet our own high standards and to redefine your search expectations in the process.

Our resources make us uniquely suited to deliver on this promise.

Our Team

We are deliberately structured to ensure that one of our leaders plays a hands-on role in every search we conduct. With extensive experience as executives and consultants in international organizations, our leaders have a sophisticated understanding of the unique operational needs of organizations that seek to change the economics of entire countries. They know how to identify leaders who can bring ingenuity and innovation to such critical work. Our leaders are supported by a carefully structured team of specialists that works together on every assignment. Drawing on our experience in the non-profit and social enterprise sectors, our staff includes a dedicated Candidate Stewardship Associate who ensures that candidates have positive impressions of our clients—no matter the outcome of their own candidacies.
