A recruitment firm thats actually interested in people. Strange as it seems, there are companies that compete with us that are less interested in people than in process (and profit), that substitute quantity for quality, that think a nifty database can replace skills, experience and judgment. At Austin Banks, we believe as you might expect that people make the difference. Finding the right people to fill your position. And having the right people at our end, working with you, giving you a level of focused, customized service that ensures your needs are properly taken care of. Here are a few more things about us that might interest you: Were independent. Were not beholden to some big national agency. That means we have the flexibility to do whats right for our clients, not just follow rules handed down by the senior management. Were targeted. We specialize in six sectors: Office Support, Sales & Marketing, Supply Chain, Accounts, Engineering and HR/Training. We fill permanent, contract and temporary positions. Were professionals, not hobbyists. Every consultant in our firm has at least five years in this business; many have significantly more. Were fast. You call, we respond. 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. (Never said we were modest.) Figuring out what you need, finding the right candidates, and doing it responsively and responsibly.
