Our Process

Our FlexTeam offering is designed for customers engaging with us for volume-related hiring needs. For customers with a handful of tough-to-fill requirements that would like to engage us on a per-hire basis, we have our Retained Search solution to provide the same dedicated support with a dedicated Recruiter and Delivery Manager to oversee the hiring project. This allows us to engage partners who are interested in our FlexTeam offering but may not have the volume of requirements to warrant our core offering.

Dedicated Full Life-Cycle Recruiter

We dedicate an experienced Recruiter familiar with your industry and required skillset as well as a dedicated Delivery Manager.

Fill Talent Pool

We save you time and headache by acting as your internal Recruiter and only providing top candidates for your search.

Tough-To-Fill Requirements

No position is out of reach for us. We take a holistic approach to understand culture & requirements to find you the best fit.

Our Model

Scale up and down resourcing to fluctuate with your hiring demand – Experienced Recruiters to tap into On-Demand (1-2 week ramp time).

"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."
