You can submit a cover letter and cv/resume to: search@mccormackkristel.com and we will attach your resume to the search for which you have applied. Our consultant will make a determination if there’s a match and will set up an initial phone screen, if so. We guarantee your information will remain confidential until you reach the final stages of the search when you will have to inform your employer that you are an active candidate.

When working with the client, we are given a range of compensation that is decided jointly, based on our market research as well as the client’s projected, budgeted compensation. Because the client can change this amount, depending on the candidate and the situation, we don’t discuss a specific number until we have our finalists for the position.

Our research staff works extensively on the internet and through reliable sources from previous searches to identify qualified candidates (prospects). We may have identified you through an internet search, or you may have been referred to us by someone who has asked to remain confidential.  We are happy to identify our source with permission.

Simply email our office at: search@mccormackkristel.com and we can make sure you are on our mailing list. It’s beneficial to let us know if you are active seeking a new position, just open to attractive opportunities or you are interested in opportunities for others. Please tell us what your interests and objectives are.

Please email: search@mccormackkristel.com with your questions and the appropriate person in our office will be happy to follow up with you regarding your questions.

The combined experience of 50 plus years between Joe McCormack and Michelle Kristel in searches for non-profits and experience working the non-profit sector will be a major plus for any organization. Our consultants have served as Executive Directors and board members, so we have personal experience with the issues and challenges facing our clients.

That would be decided upon after meeting with McCormack+Kristel and reviewing the challenges involved in the search.  We are willing to work on a fixed fee basis and to consider an extended billing plan.

A search generally takes from 90-120 days.  Occasionally, a search is extended despite our best efforts.  If this is the case, we will re-group and ensure that we have an effective strategy and timeline to bring it to closure. 

The unbilled portion of the fee is pro-rated to the date of cancellation. There may also be costs if we have done any research, traveling, or other administrative work on the engagement.
