We don’t operate quite the same way other staffing and search firms do. We believe in a tailored approach to placement that takes into account not only your field, your capability and your experience, but also who you are and where you want to go.
Our search practices grew from our extensive background in executive search and we employ many of the same rigorous techniques to our searches for qualified professionals for all positions we seek to fill — direct hire and contract. We focus on a specific range of industries and on vertical segments within those industries. This translates to a high level of familiarity with the field, the market and its short and long-term needs, and the most qualified candidates.

Quality Over Quantity
At Whitaker we’ve made it our business to know your industry and your needs — inside and out. We know that building the right team means bringing together the right personalities, skills, experience and motivation. Team building is all about personal chemistry.
