Go to Dux home

Are you seeking a challenging executive role where you can make a significant difference through social impact? Have you achieved success in the business world, the public domain or the non-profit sector? Do you need a committed partner and advisor to assist you in your recruitment efforts? The DUX team is your personal and professional partner, connecting you with executives and organizations that are dedicated to making a real difference through social impact.


Driven executives who make a difference

DUX has been mediating executive roles in the non-profit sector for over 20 years: executives, directors, managers, or senior specialists. We find experienced, driven executives and professionals who believe in combining a broad perspective on social issues with the ability to lead complex organisations and diverse teams. DUX’s clients  are predominantly (international) charitable organisationsNGOs, foundations, funds, museums and cultural institutions.

The leader of the future

Modern day executives operate differently from the way they did five or ten years ago. Changes occurring in society call for new forms of leadership and directors must become more involved and hands-on. Hybrid working has rendered the conventional manager who oversees employees in an office setting a thing of the past. Today, it is more about being able to inspire, motivate and direct employees based on their social values. A modern leader will also need to have a proactive approach towards stakeholder engagement, a broad social perspective and excellent networking abilities. Do you personally possess these qualities? If so, we would like to hear from you.

Working in the non-profit sector

As an executive recruitment agency, DUX is fully specialized within the non-profit sector. Our network, however, is made up of people from both the non-profit and for-profit sectors. We are able to offer advice and guidance should you decide to transition to the non-profit sector. Working in the non-profit sector can be very rewarding. You can make a significant impact on a range of important social issues, from cultural or development cooperation, to nature and the environment. If, after a career in business, for example, you decide you want to actively ‘give back’ to society, a position in the non-profit sector could be an ideal next step.
