Academic, Nonprofit & Government Executive Search Recruiters

Academic, nonprofit, and government institutions tie together the very fabric of our communities. At Pender & Howe, we leverage a consultative approach in our executive search, identifying the unique leadership expertise that each distinctive organization demands.

We work closely with these teams to ensure that exceptional talent will elevate their current culture, their immediate potential, and their wider vision for the future.

Our consultants have collaborated with leading universities and institutions across Canada to connect outstanding leadership with key opportunities. To attract top talent, our teams are prepared to reach beyond Canada, connecting with U.S. based academic professionals for even more successful searches.

Pender & Howe teams have also led searches with local and regional school divisions at the executive level, including Superintendent and Associate Superintendent roles.

Today’s non-profit roles present a unique challenge for finding the right fit: the scope of the positions is often broad, the compensation requirement can be difficult, and the importance of attracting the right talent is deeply essential.

Finding the right nonprofit leadership to align with an organization’s unique profile can’t be compromised. Pender & Howe teams have led senior (C-Suite level) searches across a wide variety of non-profits in the agriculture space, startup ecosystem, NGO sectors, and more.

Pender & Howe teams have worked at the provincial and federal government level, serving in both an advisory and an executive search capacity.

Key government sector roles require search activities and strategies that focus on identifying talent in Canada as well as the US. These searches tend to be very specific in scope, requiring a highly specialized search team.
