What You Get from DRi in Communications Searches

Holistic understanding of communications in the non-profit world

We understand that communications is a lynchpin of the non-profit world: a multi-faceted enterprise that engages members, supplies a case for donor investment, promotes social causes, and wins large-scale advocacy campaigns. Communications leaders must be able to engage a wide range of stakeholders through a broad set of media: they must be able to deliver compelling whitepapers to legislative and executive policy makers, build relationships that secure earned media in the national press, orchestrate social media campaigns of grassroots supporters—and more. With decades of experience that cross these functions, DRi understands the critical role of communications in an organization and how to build a department that serves internal and external stakeholders alike.

An experienced guide to reach your goal

We know that the goal of a communications search isn’t a hire; it’s new messaging, new platforms for delivering them, and new supporters. Even more importantly, we know what goes into achieving these goals. We develop precisely tailored and probing questions to clearly identify the scope of a candidate’s background. Whether you need someone who can be the public face of an organization or can build coordinated partnerships with dozens of organizational partners, we reveal how candidates will help your non-profit to achieve its communications and marketing goals.

Our Results

Utilizing the DRi approach, we have identified communications leaders who have led advocacy alliances among more than 100 partner organizations; have built integrated communications, marketing, and development programs; and have transformed communications programs to integrate traditional and digital platforms. Our communications placements include staff at every level, from vice presidents to content managers.
