What we do

In today’s marketplace many companies face great difficulty in finding and hiring qualified and reliable technology professionals. We help you overcome these obstacles by identifying the right people and delivering them. You’ll save time in recruiting, and gain peace of mind knowing that experienced recruiters are the ones finding your employees and contractors.

Contract Staffing

In today’s changing economic environment, companies are expected to “get the job done” with fewer and fewer employees. However, Collinwood’s staff augmentation option provides our clients with access to top-quality contract employees for a fixed period of time at extremely affordable rates. The cost-effectiveness of using supplemental technical professionals as contract employees or “contractors” is recognized by many firms as a proven way to extend their capabilities and to rapidly obtain needed business and technical skills. This approach eliminates the costs of recruiting, hiring, training and retaining full-time employees. Collinwood’s existing database of qualified contractors and on-staff consultants greatly reduces the time and resources needed to identify, screen, assess and hire these short-term professional resources. We use our extensive network and large database to locate the right consultant for your effort. Our contractors have the technical knowledge and business understanding to add significant value in various industries. Because of the emphasis we place on screening our contract employees, our clients receive quality service from technology professionals who understand their mission, business, and culture.

Permanent Placement

At Collinwood, we know that some of the most critical decisions made in your organization center around hiring full time employees. Our staff has a strong track record of success in recruiting qualified individuals at all levels, from Software Developers, to Enterprise Architects, Program Managers, and Information Technology Executives. Collinwood has experience working with organizations of all sizes, from start-up technology companies, to multi-national Fortune 500 enterprises. Our expertise doesn’t stop at recruiting – we assist in every step of the hiring process, including:

-Thorough reference and background checks -Salary negotiation

-Relocation negotiation

Our contact with our client and the candidate does not stop once the candidate is “placed” in a new position. We follow up with the candidate and our client frequently to ensure that the transition to new employment is smooth for both parties involved.

Project Recruiting

For those clients in need of recruiting support for permanent positions, Collinwood allows you to take advantage of our extensive network of experienced, project-focused recruiters . We have decades of experience providing rapid and reliable placement of permanent technical professionals. Our experienced recruiters, with an extensive database of skilled candidates, will rapidly identify and match potential candidates to your unique requirements. We can provide our recruiters on an hourly basis or as a “Project Recruiting” team.

We have tailored our Project Recruiting methods to help clients who already have either established recruiting teams and processes, or clients who require the “ground up” development and implementation of new recruiting processes. Our solutions are designed for growing organizations that need additional recruiting support to meet hiring challenges. Collinwood’s Project Recruiting services provide for a quick response to sudden changes in our clients’ marketplace by providing proven, dedicated resources to supplement your in-house staffing efforts as needed. Collinwood provides clients with highly experienced and extremely well trained technical recruiters who thrive in today’s fast paced environment. Collinwood employs trained recruiting professionals who are successful in high-pressure corporations where the success of our recruiters has a major impact on the success of the client. In addition to meeting the technical requirements of our client positions, Collinwood recruiters also understand that finding candidates who fit well within the client’s organizational structure and corporate culture is of paramount importance. We work closely with our clients to ensure that the candidates we provide are a good “overall” match.

Consulting-to-Hire

A bad hire can cost you between two and seven times the hired employee’s annual salary.

So why would you take that risk?

Collinwood can further reduce your hiring risk with our contract consulting-to-hire service and placement guarantees. Complementing the benefits of our Augmentation service, a Consulting-to-Hire solution may be right for you.

Have you ever wanted a hiring service with a “try before you buy” offering? Would you like to spread out the fee over a period of time? Do you worry about bringing the right person immediately to staff?

We realize that finding quality personnel that have an understanding of your environment is extremely valuable to your organization. One of the biggest obstacles clients face when dealing with staffing/consulting firms is the lack of flexibility to convert a contract resource to a permanent employee in their organization. Upon completion of a six month consulting-to-hire engagement, Collinwood consultants are available to our clients for permanent hire at no conversion fee.

Our consulting-to-hire service offers our clients a great amount of flexibility. In many instances the amount of time required to hire a full time resource extends over several weeks; we offer our clients the ability to bring a resource on immediately to mitigate any slow down in projects or work load.

The “try before you buy” scenario also allows clients the flexibility to see how compatible the selected resource aligns to their environment.
