Are you looking for qualified directors and senior professionals on a board or management level? And are you also seeking a committed sparring partner and advisor to help you in your recruitment efforts? Then we would love to hear from you. DUX is your professional and personal partner, who puts you in touch 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. The clients DUX has are (international) charity organisations, NGOs, foundations, funds, museums and cultural institutions.

Extensive network

Through our many years of experience, we have managed to build up an extensive and top quality network of directors and regulators in the cultural sector and NGOs, charities and funds. Our database is made up of a wide diversity of people; CEOs and members of boards of directors from both politics and the business world, as well as cultural entrepreneurs, creative makers and highly educated professionals. We know many of our candidates personally; we regularly speak to them about their ambitions and their availability. Our extensive network of contacts across various sectors helps point us the way to other potentially suitable candidates.

Our consultants are personally committed to and have an interest in the social domain. They know the sector that we work for inside out. Consequently, they have a vast network and in-depth knowledge of the various ways of working, the types of employees and of the values that are important for filling a position.

Diverse and inclusive

Diversity, inclusivity and good governance are at the heart of our policy and our way of working. We have been recruiting specifically for broader target groups for a number of years, and we have an excellent database of candidates from culturally diverse backgrounds. Our pool of qualified candidates is also evenly balanced in terms of gender, age range and national and even international representation. We cast our net as wide as possible, in search of the best candidate. We measure all candidates against the same yardstick, based on selection criteria that is drawn up together with you.

Personal engagement

Mediation via DUX means genuine, personal attention. We look at what best suits your organisation and the candidate. We are only satisfied once we have found the best candidate for you. We almost always succeed, thanks to our many years of experience, our ability to fathom other people in terms of their motives and behaviour, and also thanks to our extensive network. We work conscientiously, make good analyses and we know the sector through and through. Throughout the entire process, we stand by your side to guide and advise you. We stay in close contact with you and the candidates.

Our approach

We keep the recruitment process objective and transparent for all parties involved. Our search is aimed at finding the candidate who provides the best match in terms of competence, experience, personality and ambition. We think things through in a critical and creative way with you, the client. We treat our candidates with the utmost consideration, even those who ultimately do not qualify for the intended position. We uphold high standards of confidentiality and integrity in our dealings with our candidates and clients and comply with the personal data protection requirements imposed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We oversee the selection procedure and the application committee and make sure that the process is handled meticulously and transparently. We provide advice regarding the job profile and the procedure. We act as a trustworthy and committed advisor to both the client and the candidate.
