How working with us works.

01 / 05
Create a search brief

You get your own Direct Hire Consultant—and together, you create a thorough search brief for the role.

02 / 05
Recruit and vet

Your Consultant finds the right talent—and vets them through video interviews, portfolio reviews, and skills assessments. They present the top candidates to you.

03 / 05
Interview candidates

You spend a dedicated session interviewing shortlisted candidates—then work with your Consultant to compare, contrast, and pick finalists.

04 / 05
Extend the offer and close

Having already pre-closed your chosen candidate on everything, including compensation, your Consultant extends the offer and gets the “yes” you're looking for.

05 / 05
Check-in post-hire

Your Consultant checks in with you and your new hire to make sure the fit is working for everyone.

Why work with us?

Dedicated Consultants

Time and attention. You'll get it in spades from your Direct Hire Consultant. Our Consultants work only on permanent hiring and focus on a limited number of positions at once.

Top talent

More. Great. Talent. Our Direct Hire Consultants tap into our global talent network, including superstars who aren't looking, but are open to the right opportunity.

Collaborative partnerships

Collaboration is key. Our Consultants are experts at recruiting in marketing, creative, and experience design, and add value every step of the way. They're all about working closely with you to find the right hire.
