You save money

With our Time-Based Recruiting, you only pay for the time it takes to build a team that makes a difference. Instead of paying 20-30% of each hire’s first-year salary, our clients only pay an average of 12% per hire — about half the cost of traditional recruiters. 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 and impact. 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 HAVE a collaborative partneR

We are an extension of your team. We get to know your culture and needs so we can solve your hiring challenges with you, rather than focus on a short-term windfall. Our recruiters collaborate to actively seek out diverse candidates and build a pipeline of diverse 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.

“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.”
