A Word From Our Founder
After over a decade in leadership at a nationally recognized contingent staffing firm, I set out to provide HR teams a cost-effective, high-touch, flexible service to help them avoid multiple, high cost, and high headache recruiting firm relationships.
We provide a dedicated, managed, flexible solution to give power back to the HR team in support of their hiring efforts. We take a lot of pride in becoming THE nationally-recognized partner for our unique offering by doing things THE RIGHT WAY.
Thank you for your interest and we hope to partner with you in the future.

What Are Clients Saying?
"We appreciate the flexibility that Lucas James offers. We are able to staff up during peak season without having to commit to full time resources. Lucas James has an experienced team that can integrate quickly into a staffing model."
Associate Director of Talent Acquisition,
"We have seen results in all of the standard recruiting KPI’s, time to fill, hiring source etc., but more importantly we have seen quality in the people joining. We are in high growth mode, so it is easy to slip into fast hiring tactics to fill seats, but in partnership with Lucas James and our hiring managers, we have continued to keep the quality of the interviews, quality of the assessments, and quality in the conversations determining who will be the best new team member."
Head of People,
"It feels like my partners at Lucas James are full-time members of Rewards Network's recruitment team. They understand our culture, process, and the need to bring key talent into our organization. All are very in tune with our business and what is happening in our markets and industry which just strengthens their partnership with hiring managers."
Head of People,
"Lucas James Talent Partners' unique model is flexible, affordable, and their team helped with areas outside of just sourcing like creating job specs and running the interview process end to end. Multiple portfolio companies have been very happy with the results and have had success hiring across a broad range of functions."
Director of Talent,
