Partnership Matters

Recruiting firms who are not interested in a long term relationship will value the transaction. WilliamCharles is committed not merely to filling your position but to finding the candidate who will deliver exceptional performance. We value being a partner in creating success.

We understand we are a reflection of you when we represent you. We will represent your organization in a credible and professional manner. We will remain focused on our long-term relationship and operate with the highest ethical standards.

We'll find candidates you won't find on your own!

We don’t rely on ads and internet postings to find candidates. We focus on referrals and research to find candidates that won’t be answering your ads on Monster.

We have been a leader in our industry with regard to developing and using the latest tools and technology to research and source passive candidates.

We feel the best candidates are referrals! We have a vast proprietary data base of passive candidates and referral sources. We are part of two large recruiting firm networks to expand our capability across the globe. In the recruiting world….it’s who you know! 

We won't waste your time.

We will approach your need with the urgency that it demands. We believe that a tailored executive search process can be both responsive and quality focused.

Our process ensures that you spend time interviewing only those candidates with the highest potential for being the best fit. We won’t waste your time with “no fits”.

We provide a summary page on every candidate we present. This summary answers the basic questions that you will wonder about when you look at the resume. Some of this info includes pay, reason for leaving and experience that connects to the requirements of the position. We also try and give you insight about the candidate’s qualities and personality, motives and unique qualities.

Each of our team members has extensive management; leadership and recruitment experience that will add value in understanding your specific need and delivering referrals that meet and exceed your expectations.

Ongoing communication throughout the process is the cornerstone of our service commitment. 

Our Misson

We understand that having the right people in key positions can have a profound effect on a company’s success. We have proven experience finding, attracting and recruiting the right people.

We believe that your most critical hiring needs require a different approach. We complete an extensive screening process prior to referring any individuals to our clients. Our clients appreciate this thoughtful approach when compared to the many firms that participate in indiscriminate resume distribution.
