Our Core Values

These six values encompass our fundamental truths as humans and as a company. 

They guide our daily operations and every decision we make. 

We are humans who work with humans, not job titles.

No matter who you are or what you do, we are here to help you illuminate your path.


This world of hiring and career can be a roller coaster! With so many twists, turns and loop-de-doops, it can be easy to go off the rails. We thrive on a challenge, and finding creative solutions to problems and delays is in our DNA.

We don't "fill roles", we find great people.

You are so much more than a number to us. We know who you are and we know what you need. Working together is EASY because we put you first.

Service with a smile.

You will never find a robot on the end of the line. Whether our client or candidate, we know your name and we are here every step of the way. We’ve been called ‘a breath of fresh air’ more than once!

We do what we say and you get what we promise.

We won’t waste your time with candidates who aren’t a perfect match. No hidden fees or surprises, just straight up support. And we tell the truth - if something isn’t working or could get better results with a small tweak, we’ll say so!

Every. Damn. Day.

Our mission is to illuminate the world of work for everyone, regardless of role or title.

We want to create a world where building great teams and finding great people - while never "easy" - is a pleasure.

We are here to reimagine recruiting for the 21st century - for recruiters, candidates and clients alike.

Everything we do, everything we are exists to forge a connection between people. Whether it’s writing the perfect job description, finding that diamond in a sea of resumes, or helping someone out of the fog and into career clarity, we do it all through a human lens. 

This isn’t “work”, this is our true calling and our heart’s joy. In short, our life’s work is helping you find YOURS.
