What to Expect During a Context Leader Search



No Surprises

We know that the entire process matters. We work tirelessly for you. From getting to know your organization well enough to screen candidates that aren't good fit, to vetting every single candidate. You may wonder what we're doing between starting a search candidate interviews. We're making sure we have what we need to find your new leader.



Team Assessment and Consulting

For senior leadership roles, Context Staffing will conduct a thorough assessment of your team to better understand the dynamics at play. We will interview each relevant team member so that we know what type of leader would best complement the team you already have.



The Right Leader

We go beyond asking about basic beliefs and resume gaps. We find out candidates' convictions, how they lead, learn their greatest successes and failures. We get to know your church. We find out what the job actually requires, what your values are, and what the right fit looks like.



Onboarding Support

Bringing in new staff can be complicated and time-consuming. That's why our services don't end when your find your candidate. We walk you through salary negotiation, relocation, and will coach your new leader for their first 90 days on the job. We're here for you and your new team member.
