Offor Walker Group partners with education organizations who are dedicated to creating diverse leadership teams. They understand that attracting the best talent is critical to their success and are ready to do what it takes to attract those hires. It’s not just a question of finding the right person, but finding the person that’s right for them. Doing so takes more than talent recruiting. It takes the counsel and advice from an expert talent matchmaker.
When it came time to make tough calls between a slate of equally impressive candidates, the team at Offor Walker Group drew me back to our scorecard and reminded me of what I had said was most important to our search. I truly appreciate their insight and counsel every step of the way!

Our Dedication to Clients Includes
A Commitment to Building Relationships
We take the time to get to know you, your organization, and what kind of person would be your ideal match. It’s a more personal, one-on-one relationship that requires candor and mutual feedback.
A High-Caliber Talent Pool
We strive to work with – and push – organizations with a real commitment to building diverse leadership teams by challenging age-old archetypes of leadership. We build competitive pools of candidates by leveraging our national network of leaders and talent scouts, and are proud that more than 90% of our semi-finalists are cultivated through our direct relationships.
A Rigorous Assessment of Candidates
We then assess each candidate against our scorecard to test for non-negotiable skills while building interest in those we think are strongest. As a result, hiring managers are provided keen insight into what each candidate brings to the table. In addition, we work to ensure lasting success by providing coaching and counsel to both clients and candidates after a placement has been made.
All inquiries are held strictly confidential.
What Clients Are Saying
Offor Walker Group conducted a search for the School Model Leader/Superintendent for the largest family of schools within the Breakthrough Charter Schools network. I tell this story not because of the team's instant success with this search, but because of the perseverance and high integrity they demonstrated in repeating the search when it became necessary to do so.
CEO, Breakthrough Charter Schools
We have made so much progress in Delaware and that is the direct result of our work with Offor Walker Group. Their team pushed us in every way. They said the things we didn’t want to hear and they were right.
Deputy Superintendent, Delaware Department of Education and Teach For America alumnus
When Blue Engine launched a national search for a programmatic leader (VP-level) we turned to Offor Walker Group. Within minutes of signing the contract I knew this would be a different experience. The talent matchmakers at Offor Walker Group are rigorous thinkers who forced us to define what success looked like in clear and measurable ways.
