Our Focus

Our main focus is to re-instill trust between recruiters, companies and professionals to elevate the search industry - and we can't do it without you.

We advocate for top shelf recruiters and head hunters who deserve to be recognized for raising the bar so that company hiring managers and top tier career seekers can more easily seek and engage with the best recruiters, in confidence.

Nominate an outstanding recruiter



Top Recruiter™ organizations can display the official certification badge, compare their survey scores to the Top Recruiter™ benchmarks, and publish their organization’s Top Recruiter® Online Profile to spread the word about their great work!

More than 80% of recruiters say they rely on referrals and repeat business from existing clients. If you believe you're a top shelf recruiter, get nominated and be recognized as the leader of search in your city and industry. It's free.
