Our Services

Randall Search Associates conducts searches at a variety of levels to help your organization build capacity and thrive. We identify fundraising leaders who can manage, build and lead comprehensive development/advancement programs. We also seek professionals who possess the skills and experience to oversee key functional areas within the development/advancement organization, such as directors of corporate and foundation relations, annual giving, principal and/or major gifts, planned giving, development operations, alumni relations, prospect research, and marketing and communications.

  • Executing targeted recruitment campaigns and promoting the opportunity

  • Implementing creative approaches to sourcing and screening to uncover qualified talent

  • Performing skilled candidate evaluations and assessments

  • Presenting ongoing verbal and written candidate reports and evaluations

  • Consulting regarding the offer, decision making and negotiations

  • Providing onboarding support and consistent follow-up with both candidate and client after placement
