Higher Education

Ever tightening budgets. Relentless scrutiny. Talent poaching. At state schools, private colleges and for-profit institutions, higher education professionals are stressed by these issues and stretched too thin without adding on the challenge of recruiting top talent. Since 2001, Duffy Group has nurtured relationships in this specialized niche and has become a go-to resource for educational institutions around the country searching for premier faculty and administrative staff.

Our experience working closely with non-profit organizations has enabled us to understand the challenges of recruiting within this unique environment where different stakeholders (e.g., board members and legacy founders) may have a say in the hiring process. Duffy Group’s cost-efficient model is of particular value in the non-profit arena where budgets are usually tight, and where focus needs to be on the organization’s mission not recruiting, and volunteers may be involved. For non-profit clients, we often serve as the Search Facilitator within the search committee, which is often comprised of individuals new to talent searches.
