“There are a ton of advantages to working with Creative Alignments. One I really appreciate is how integrated they are with the nuances of our roles. They are so in tune with VictorOps that once they recommend a candidate, my need to screen them becomes a formality.  This has freed up a lot of my time to work on other priorities.”

Dan Hopkins
VP of Engineering


“After working with traditional recruiters, we were left feeling like the whole process was transactional and misaligned because they work for commission. We started working with Creative Alignments because their hourly model made more sense to us. Honestly, we were nervous at first to try something different, but it has been a great experience. They’ve been our recruiting consulting partner and helped us build a really strong team.”

Accelerate your Business with the right team in place
Creative Alignments’ expertise and Time-Based Recruiting help you scale more effectively and efficiently
You save money

With our Time-Based Recruiting, you only pay for the time it takes to build the right team. Instead of paying 20-30% of each hire’s first-year salary, our clients only pay an average of 11% per hire — about half the cost of traditional recruiters. The work done on your search is yours to keep so you can make additional hires without additional fees.

You save time

Recruiting takes valuable time, often at the expense of important day-to-day work. But getting the right people in the right seats is critical for business growth. A bad hire or a vacant role is just too costly. We add bandwidth and expertise to your team to find you the talent you need.

You align with a collaborative partneR

We’ve got your back for the long haul because we’re not focused on the short-term windfall of a commission after each hire. We get to know your culture and needs so we can solve your hiring challenges with you. Our recruiters collaborate to actively seek out ideal candidates and build a pipeline of talent you would not otherwise find.

You Have an expert team of recruiters, on demand

We are your internal recruiting team – one with deep industry connections and knowledge, recruiting expertise and tools, and the ability to scale up when you need us, and be gone when you don’t.

You have transparent consultants in your court

We never coach candidates or fix resumes to look better than they are, all in hopes of getting a big commission. You’ll always hear our honest insights on candidates so you can make the best choice for your company.


Here's how we work with you

We listen to learn

In our first kick-off meeting, we get to know your brand, company culture, goals and the nuances of your roles. We become closely aligned with your team, so that we can work as an integral part of it. With this knowledge, we can refine your hiring strategy, craft a positive employment brand and build name recognition in your local employment marketplace.

We source and attract ideal candidates

Using our proprietary database, deep networks, professional search tools, recruiter collaboration, creative sleuthing, and some plain ol’ detective skills, we ferret out the hidden talent you need. With our industry knowledge, we are experts at identifying and attracting top talent for your roles.

We screen to narrow the field

Representing your company (unless otherwise directed), we leverage our expertise and industry knowledge to ask the right questions that get to the heart of what you need to know about each candidate to make the best choice. We also understand that a candidate’s positive experience at this stage is critical to you building a strong employment brand.

We present you with the best

When we present you with the candidates most aligned with your culture and needs, we openly share with you the reasons we chose them, and any concerns we may have.  Since we don’t work on commission, we do not push candidates or tell you someone is great when they are not. With this honest insight, your team can interview your favorites and extend an offer to the final candidate.

There are no surprises

We create a recruiting plan and provide you with regular updates on time spent, progress made and next steps. We work directly for you and you’re always in the loop. You’ll know our strategy, what we’ve done, and what’s next. If there is some reason we need to expand beyond the agreed upon scope, you will be alerted and consulted.

We work at your speed, and even on-site

Are you hiring a few, steadily growing, or hiring hundreds? We’ve got your back.
