More About Devex Candidate Sourcing

We would like to thank those firms who have pointed out that traditional executive search doesn't typically make sense in the international development industry and have requested our assistance Aside from an occasional top job at major development consultancies and NGOs, the cost of executive search and the success-based nature of the fee structure doesn't usually fit with a market characterized by bids and lean budgets

We find ourselves in the unique position of knowing thousands of excellent candidates committed to a career in international development and hundreds of major firms and NGOs seeking just these kinds of candidates We hope that in providing this service we can both support your work and further our own goal of improving efficiency and effectiveness in our industry Matching the right professionals with the right positions is good for everyone, not least the developing world
