About the Position

As key members of search teams, Search Analysts manage full-cycle elements of search engagements, including sourcing, screening, and guiding high-quality candidates throughout the recruitment process. In addition, Search Analysts produce client-facing communications and participate in weekly client calls. Search Analysts work on collaborative search-based teams and, in many cases, on a variety of company-wide projects and tasks. This is not a typical behind-the-scenes Analyst role; we rely on our Search Analysts to represent On-Ramps and our clients to the sector.

This position is an excellent fit for a relationship-savvy, organized, and driven individual who is energized by the opportunity to contribute to a leading social enterprise. If you are a strong project manager, enjoy relationship-building, value a collaborative environment, and are excited about attracting and securing top talent for innovative organizations across the growing social sector, we'd love to meet you.

  • Ensure all logistics are managed seamlessly throughout a search
  • Proactively communicate with manager(s) and team members about the progress of your searches


  • Draft high-quality documents (meeting agendas, job descriptions, candidate assessments, etc.) that present information clearly and compellingly
  • Manage communication with existing candidates, and describe roles to prospective candidates
  • Present relevant information clearly on client calls, take meeting notes, and identify relevant next steps

  • Quickly establish rapport and build long-term relationships and trust with a diverse group of clients and candidates

Candidate Requirements:
  • Passion for working with innovative, social sector organizations and a belief that talent is a key lever for change in organizations
  • Bachelor's degree
  • At least two years of professional experience, ideally in talent/executive search or a social sector organization
  • Strong verbal and written communications skills
  • High level of integrity, trust, accountability, and judgment
  • Exceptional interpersonal and relationship-building skills and a strong customer service orientation; ability to collaborate and effectively interact with internal teams and diverse external stakeholders
  • Strong task and project management skills; ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment, meet multiple concurrent deadlines, organize time and priorities, and work well as a member of a team
  • Proven experience meeting and exceeding goals in a results-oriented environment
  • Entrepreneurial spirit with an ability to maneuver effectively in the face of ambiguity
  • Sense of humor and an appetite for an environment that balances fun with professionalism
