NGO & Not For Profit

NGO and Not For Profit organisations are now vital links between business, government and society. Because of spiralling costs and complications of government involvement, services that have historically been provided by governments are more commonly being pushed off the national balance sheet and into the NGO and NFP community to provide solutions. Furthermore, individual governments cannot deal with global problems, and entities distinct from governments such as NGOs can mobilise and expand support for causes across borders. For many years, executive search has held a vital role in finding new leaders to adapt to this changing landscape. Kestria can identify these social entrepreneurs that can spur innovative solutions and demonstrate real return on investment to governments, foundations, businesses or private contributors. In doing this, they deliver on their mission to make people’s lives better.
