In addition to sourcing exceptional financial, fundraising, executive and other leaders, our candidates need to have the right demeanor and motivation in their desire to work for our Church.
Our mission is finding highly qualified executives
“At once they left their nets and followed Him.”
Catholic Recruiter Associates grew out of the lineage of an executive search firm, P.J. Lynch Associates, founded nearly thirty years ago.
Seeing a need for highly qualified lay people to fill the positions previously held by religious was the inspiration for establishing a Catholic dedicated component of our company. We are quickly becoming the leading Catholic Executive Search Firm.
When we developed this division, thirteen years ago, we quickly came to understand that working for our Church clients demanded a different filter when looking at our candidate base.
We had the opportunity of Patrick Lynch’s expertise and his personal gifts to come to understand and work with the mission of Mt. Irenaeus and our core personnel. His communications with me and others were especially helpful as we moved into and completed the process of finding an Executive Director. Pat is obviously a seasoned professional who listens well and with our particularly unique mission and practice was able to find a pool of excellent candidates and move us to the completion of our search in a very efficient and effective way.
With extensive experience in the use and application with a multitude of consulting firms, I offer my highest and enthusiastic recommendations for this firm. This firm is the best that I have encountered. No greater praise may I offer. If you want the BEST– look no further.
At the Diocese of St. Augustine, we have utilized Pat Lynch and his firm of Catholic Recruiters to help us fill four key leadership positions; the Superintendent of Schools, the Chief Financial Officer, Director of Stewardship and Development and the Director of Human Resources. Pat and his team are extremely knowledgeable of the Catholic faith as well as what it takes to be successful in each role at the Diocesan level. The Catholic Recruiters team has a wide range of contacts and recruiting methods to reach excellent candidate’s within the Catholic community. With just one visit to our site, Pat was able to assess the environment which enabled him to recommend just the right people for our opportunities. Our leadership team has been strengthened beyond measure because of his abilities to put the right candidates in front of us. Pat is professional, congenial and quick to find numerous viable candidates. Thank you Pat, Arlene and Paul for your amazing services.
