Go to Dux home

Are you seeking an interesting executive-level position where you can make a real difference in terms of social impact? Have you earned your stripes in the business world, the public domain or the non profit sector? And are you also seeking a committed sparring partner and advisor to help you in your recruitment efforts? With the team from DUX, you have a professional partner who puts you in touch in a personal way with executives who are committed 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. Experienced and driven executives and professionals who find it only makes sense to couple a broad outlook on social issues with the ability to lead complex organisations and diverse teams. DUX clients are (internationally operating) charites, NGOs, foundations, funds, museum and cultural institutions.

The leader of the future

The executive of today and tomorrow is different compared to five or ten years ago. Changes taking place in society call for new forms of leadership from directors. Open and committed. Hybrid working means that the traditional manager who manages people in the office is a thing of the past. Nowadays, it is much more about being able to inspire, motivate and guide employees on the basis of their social values. Also towards stakeholders outside the organisation, the modern leader has an open, connection-oriented mindset, a broad outlook on social issues and excellent networking skills. Do you recognise yourself in this? Then we would love to talk to you.

Working in the non profit sector

DUX, as an executive recruitment agency, has fully specialised itself in the non profit sector. In contrast, our network is made up of people from both the non profit and for profit sectors. We will guide you when you want to make the switch to the non profit sector. Working in the non-profit sector offers a lot of added value. You can have a significant impact on important social issues, ranging from culture to development cooperation, or nature and the environment. If, after a career in the business world, for example, you want to give something back to society, a position in the non profit sector is a wonderful next step.
