The Non-Profit Executive Search Industry

Home > Executive Search Information Portal > Non-Profit


The Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants’ Q1 2014 State of the Industry Report showed the non-profit sector holding a 5.6% market share of the 11 billion dollar executive search industry. 2014 has started to show a slight spike (+1.4%) in non-profit sector market share, which had remained relatively steady in previous years.

Outlook for Non-Profit Executive Search


There are over 580 individual AESC member search consultants (also known as headhunters or executive recruiters) specializing in non-profit executive job opportunities throughout the world.

The non-profit industry is not expected to return to such substantial growth anytime soon, but positions in non-profit executive search should ultimately grow on pace with the economy, achieving neither the bigger growth predication nor noticeably reduced growth.
