Companies spend hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars on staffing and marketing campaigns.
For the price of one key hire, we will generate a video campaign that's not only going to showcase your story to top talent, but you will also want it front and center of your website.
Contingent Model
Geared towards Flexibility.
Retained Model

Testimonials

Story Partners recruited a candidate very fast for a position that we had open on the marketing team. The candidate has added a lot of value quickly and was promoted within a year. I would recommend Tom and his team for any of your recruiting needs!

The Story Partners team has a keen eye for company culture and a unique ability to communicate it well. Candidates engaged our interview process with a clear understanding of our values and expectations, so there was an early alignment with the staff that Story Partners helped to place. They found the talent. They told our story. We've been able to build out our team with vested people who fit our culture and further our mission.
