Your hiring, solved

Talented, productive professionals are not actively looking for work, which presents recruiting challenges for today’s employers. At Craft Recruiting, we go out and uncover the best talent in the market and position your opportunity as the right move for them.

Craft recruiters have a strong beat on what motivates passive candidates, and that connection is what drives our success – and our clients’ success.

Because we look beyond “available” talent, we are able to find pros who are technically qualified and culturally aligned to make a positive impact on the organization. We focus on both the person and the professional, matching them with the right opportunity so they are primed to accept an offer when it is extended.

FAQ's

Craft Recruiting delivers results in 3 direct-hire recruiting models:

  • Executive (Retained) Search
  • Container Search
  • Contingency Search

We primarily conduct searches for Technology, Construction, Engineering, Facilities Management, and Manufacturing professionals at the mid-level and up nationwide. Because of the results we deliver to our clients, they often prefer to work with us on roles outside of our specialties and we will usually be able to accommodate these requests.

When recruiting is a Craft and not just your job title, your approach is much different. Paired with bleeding-edge technology, our recruiters are able to tap into diverse networks of skilled candidates with the experience and talent you're looking for.

Speed and quality matter. Recruiting is a Craft learned by lots of hard work. We pair highly skilled recruiters with technologies that streamline redundant, inefficient tasks to free up time for spending time with you and the professionals that we selectively send your way.

Like most professions, it's true that there are a multitude of agencies that offer similar services for similar fees. What we've found is that most agencies are either phenomenal... or they're terrible. And there’s the occasional “in between the two” (but you don’t want to work with those agencies. You know the kind). The recruiters at Craft were always on the phenomenal side of their markets. Most agencies post ads or sift through a database trying to match keywords. 1 out of 20 times they may find the occasional candidate that is "good enough" to get hired, but not strong enough to stay and make an impact.

Craft invests a multitude of hours upfront with our clients to ensure we're finding the right people you want to hire. We arm ourselves with the information we need to approach the right candidates and sell them on your opportunities. The candidates we work with are not the average "job seeker" you're likely seeing from other agencies. They're not desperate for a job, they're not job hoppers, job shoppers, or unqualified candidates. Craft's candidates are highly skilled, gainfully employed, happy and well-compensated. But if approached correctly by a professional, they will consider a move for the right opportunity. That's where our expertise is. And that's the caliber of candidates we deliver to our clients. Every. Single. Time.
