Most Hiring Managers and HR Professionals ask us who we recruit, but nobody ever asks us “why.” We recruit PhDs, Chemists, and Engineers, and the reason “why” is because we find it fascinating. We work with candidates who provide innovative ideas.
Many of the PhD’s that we recruit are frequently published, and quite often they are the leading authorities in their field. When they describe to us the work that they do, it’s amazing, it’s exciting, and they’re almost always passionate when they describe their work, since they love it.
It’s one thing to have a vision, it’s another thing to get there. The Engineers that we recruit know how to get things done. When Leadership sets a goal, they’re the ones who implement the vision. They’re problem solvers who provide solutions and dive into the details. As with the PhDs they’re committed to their work, and it’s exciting for us to help these engineers progress in their careers.
The Chemists that we recruit are highly creative technical people. Nothing gets them more excited than developing a new product, or improving an existing one. Their excitement transfers over to us, and it’s a pleasure to work with them.
You can’t be good at what you do, unless you enjoy what you do. Many of our client companies are repeat customers, and I think that’s because we enjoy what we do. We’re friendly, yet professional, and that makes us easy to work with. We recruit our candidates for the Chemicals, Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, Elastomers, Agro Chemicals, Specialty Chemicals, Colorants, Plastics, Pharmaceutical and Machinery industries. We like to recruit for “critical hires.” These are searches that make a real difference to the company. Our candidates are people who are essential for the company to grow, or even to operate. Many of our clients are Mid-Market Manufacturing companies, although we work with larger companies as well. Since the positions that we recruit are critical to the success of our client companies, these roles are a high priority of the CEO, President, Vice President of Manufacturing, and Vice President of Technology.
Some of our recent searches that we’ve recruited on have been the following: VP TECHNOLOGY, TECHNICAL DIRECTOR, PhD SCIENTIST, R&D BENCH CHEMIST, COATINGS CHEMIST, PROCESS ENGINEER, MECHANICAL DESIGN ENGINEER, MAINTENANCE & RELIABILITY ENGINEER, VP MANUFACTURING, DIRECTOR OPERATIONS, PLANT MANAGER, CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT MANAGER, EHS MANAGER, AND LEAN SIX SIGMA BLACK BELT.
We enjoy speaking with Leadership, Hiring Managers, and HR Professionals that are passionate about their companies, and excited about recruiting new members to their team.
