We appreciate the work Bandwidth has done with many of our founding teams to make their first key, critical hires as well as scale-up larger teams. Bandwidth’s model dedicates a talent advisor to the CEO/founder plus a team on the back end who all roll up their sleeves to get the hiring done with speed and quality. Bandwidth also builds out competitive recruiting messaging, infrastructure, and streamlined processes that enable long-term, scalable hiring success.

What
We Do

We recruit and hire with speed and have the strength and skill set to deal with ambiguous and difficult hiring situations. We thrive on urgency and have the resources and digital tools to ignite your pipeline and start delivering qualified candidates with a quickness.

But we also know when it’s time to take a step back and map out a longer-term program to meet both your current and future talent acquisition needs. Our offerings cover both.

Why It Works

You have a choice

Our On-demand Recruiting Service Model lets you augment your hiring efforts quickly, scaling up or down as needs change. You choose the amount of support you need with flexible, tiered hourly, and monthly contracts that help you power through a hiring blitz or keep moving while scaling up your recruiting team.

You have a champion

Whether you hire Bandwidth for a quick-turn project or a multi-year program, our approach to partnership is the same. We build long-term partnerships through accountability, transparency, candor, and a shared sense of purpose. We spend time getting to know you and become enthusiastic champions of your brand.

You get the right people

Contingency firms are incentivized to place as many people as possible, at the highest salary possible. We evaluate your talent needs to deliver the best candidates for the role, budget, and company culture. And all the candidates we source are your leads to keep and follow up with in the future.

You establish trust

Bandwidth works seamlessly as a recruiting arm of your company. We learn your business, company story, culture, and key messages so candidates can trust that they’re speaking with a real company with real open jobs. We recruit under your brand, with no hidden agendas, and take our role as a brand representative very seriously.

You get results

Combining decades of recruiting experience, proven best practices, and the latest technology, we deliver results in days, not weeks. We use real-time testing and data to continually optimize our approaches, gaining new insights and efficiency as we go.

You save time & money

Managing multiple external contingent firms is expensive and time-consuming. Short-term, individual contractors mean starting someone new, again and again. We’ll retain the knowledge, experience, and trust you invest in us, so programs start and run seamlessly.
