A recruitment firm thats actually interested in people.

We dont waste time with irrelevant candidates. We set up interviews, often the same day. You get your job filled. You need something, its taken care of. We are 100% focused on recruiting. We dont spend a lot of time glad handing or self promoting or throwing fancy parties (apologies in advance if thats what you were looking for). Were good at what we do, if we do say so ourselves.
