Success Story

Our Indianapolis Client was a fast-growing Ingredient Company. When relocating to a new headquarters, they needed a Talent Acquisition Partner to help fill numerous contract, contract-to-hire and direct hire roles.

Using our deep pool of passive candidates, our specialized recruiters worked quickly and efficiently. We focused our attention and resources to land ideal matches — highly qualified Lab Technicians, Sensory Technicians, Chemists and Research and Development Scientists. It was a major success — and for our team, it’s all in a day’s work.
