We are Dober Partners
Dober Partners is an Executive Search & Consultancy firm operating in Brussels and around Europe, since 2010.
Dober Partners first opened its doors in 2010. The senior team of Dober Partners is Mark Dober, Natalia Kurop, Brian Ager, Christophe Lécureuil and Frédéric Goffard. While our focus is Brussels, we recruit senior communicators and public affairs executives all over Europe, from Paris to Amsterdam and Berlin to Madrid
Dober Partners is the specialist in European communication, public affairs and association leadership recruitment.
From our offices in Brussels, we recruit senior communication and public affairs executives for corporates, associations, consultancies and law firms. The major difference with our competitors is that in addition to our headhunting specialism, we are also practitioners who really understand the communication and advocacy sector. For example, if our clients brief us on requiring specific knowledge and skills in EU lobbying or media relations, we know exactly what they are talking about, as we have been there ourselves. We also understand issues, so if our clients want healthcare or digital policy experts we understand their needs exactly.
Our entire team has first-hand experience of leading associations and recruiting association leaders.
Unusually the entire Brussels Leadership Team has served on Association Boards in different roles, including Director General, Director of Communications, Director of Public Affairs and Chief Operating Officer. Hence, Dober Partners’ Brussels team really understand best practice in the profession, and critically how to tell the difference between an outstanding and average association leader.
We are independent specialists who don’t have to support an expensive HQ, costly network and outside shareholders. Our overheads are lower and our focus is clear. We recruit better candidates, faster.
We also provide strategic advice, research and other consultancy services to association leaders and their boards.
