Opportunity Resources was founded to fill a particular niche by professionalizing how key positions were filled by non-profit cultural organizations. We understood that only with the right leadership would they grow and prosper in a competitive and evolving field. The right candidate can have a measurable impact on the organization. We had the experience and knowledge to provide the superior leadership teams cultural institutions needed. Over the years we have refined and perfected our executive search practice, filled hundreds of top positions and built a reputation we can be proud of.
We are pro active recruiters and know where to find the talented individuals who may or may not be considering a change. Our relentless sourcing of our hundreds of contacts and searching our database with information on thousands of professionals leads us to candidates not found otherwise. We interview and thoroughly vet prospects before selecting a slate of four to six qualified and vetted candidates for our client organization to interview. And we provide administrative support and guidance throughout the interview process, offer and transition of the new leader to her/his new organization.
Adding to recruiting for CEO/Director positions, at the request of our clients, we are retained to fill positions of Chief Curators, Deputy Directors and other senior level positions. We maintain and value on-going relationships with our client organizations’ trustees and the candidates we have placed.
In addition to executive search assignments we work with institutions on a number of related matters that utilize our unique expertise acquired over thirty years of work in the field. We are continually providing advice to potential clients regarding search and personnel issues. On a daily and informal basis, we receive telephone inquiries and share insights and information regarding employee/employer relationships, reference audits, compensation review, hiring and firing practices and other specific policies and problems, all of which cannot be measured in monetary terms.
