Hiring new employees can be time consuming and frustrating, especially when you must do so on top of performing other urgent tasks. Even if your company has a dedicated human resources manager, their attention may be better focused on retaining the talent you have.

By hiring a recruitment firm, such as Legacy Bowes, we take on the work of screening the applicants who don’t meet your criteria, and bring forward only the candidates who merit your attention. Our dedicated Talent Acquisition team sources and identifies the top talent in the marketplace and in our own extensive internal database. We evaluate candidates based on criteria you provide and present the most promising options to you. We even assist in the development and negotiation of the offer of employment once you have made your selection.

We do not consider the job done until we have reached the best possible outcome for you.
