Contingency based recruitment services

We offer Tech specialist recruitment services that are tailored to companies seeking a high-quality and collaborative partnership.  We believe that successful recruitment requires a deep understanding of your organization’s values, culture, and specific talent requirements. 

We have chosen to focus on working with companies who share our values and who are committed to partnering with us in a mutually beneficial and respectful manner. By prioritizing quality over quantity, we ensure that every engagement is a true partnership built on trust and shared goals.

Whether you are a Software Development house, a Technology product or SaaS company, or a company with fairly regular Tech and Data talent needs, we understand your needs.

Partner with a seasoned team, to execute a deep search at the same cost as a standard agency-style contingency search.

Engaged Search Services

Our engaged search service is the ideal solution for companies who want the best talent, and understand that it takes an intentional commited process to find it.  Finding the best fit happens with a deep search, with good coverage.  This service is for those who value doing it right the first time, and who want a professional, committed team focused fully on their opening/(s). Our team has the ability to identify and secure the best candidates, executing complex searches with a strong commitment to quality.  

This service involves paying a small portion of the estimated fee upfront to engage the search.  This ensures our clients goals are aligned with ours, allowing us to invest the necessary time and resources into a comprehensive, high-quality search with a mulitfaceted approach.   The overall cost of a deep search with longer focus costs the same as a contingency search, of which the level of focus is not comparible.  Partnering with committed clients allows us to work the way we want to work – doing our very best, without increasing the cost.

Engage a seasoned team to execute on multiple search strategies to get better coverage of each position, ensuring the talent pool you hire from is the best available to you.  This will ultimately improve the talent density of your business.
