Ida came to J. Kent with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and 17 years of non-profit experience to include a broad knowledge and understanding of 501(c)3 day-to-day operations. Ida’s background and experience in the non-profit world was extensive, to include working in the following functional areas: fundraising, grant writing, Parrish administration, volunteer management, development coordination, and program coordination.
J. Kent’s client, a Denver based non-profit with a healthcare mission, had been searching for a new Administrative Assistant to fill the Denver job. After several months of searching on their own they still were not able to identify the right talent and culture fit for their organization. Eventually they made the decision to reach out to J. Kent Staffing, and engaged our services for a Direct Hire search to find the elusive candidate. The executive staff of the 501(c)3 knew exactly what they were seeking, and it was not difficult to identify the right candidates after listening to their detailed and specific requirements.
Once a full and detailed job description was developed we began our search. Our non-profit client, with more than 35 years of Denver history, was offering an interesting, diversified position with a competitive salary and exceptional, top-of-the line benefits. However, as we continued to engage with our client, it became evident that the “real benefits” were in the heart of its dedicated, team oriented staff that has worked closely together for many years, helping to grow the organization through purpose and mission.
The competition for this position was fierce, as careers in the world of non-profit are highly sought after. After completing the arduous hiring process, to include extensive interviews with all of the organization’s staff members, background checks and verification’s, Ida received the job offer.
Ida recently celebrated three years with this organization, which has proven to be a true fit. Today she is a valued employee that works hard to keep the office running efficiently! When you call the office you hear the friendly voice of Ida, and when you stop by you get to see the smile behind the voice. Kind, gracious and giving, Ida was not only the right match, but also the right fit for this team oriented non-profit.
Congratulations Ida, …three years and counting!
