Direct Placement

Higher quality of talent

Recruiting is not a core competency of most companies, but at Kelly it’s at the very heart of what we do, and as the most trusted name in the industry, we’ve spent more than 65 years mastering it. We act as an extension of your recruiting efforts to serve a wide range of positions placed and industry verticals.

We approach recruiting with a mix of time-honored best practices and resourceful engagement with today's connected and global economy. Our networked specialization in these areas greatly increases the employee pool that you can choose from—including both active and passive talent.

Kelly direct placement services span entry- and mid-level to professionals, to managerial and VP-level talent, providing highly qualified, prescreened personnel for full-time employment—managed and delivered nationwide through our specialized recruiting network and branch locations.

Because we spend time upfront getting to know the needs of your organization and our candidates, we’re able to identify and present candidates who are the best fit for your positions. Strong relationships are the number one reason clients and candidates remain satisfied Kelly customers. We have strong local recruiting networks to locate top talent in your backyard, but our national scope also gives us the flexibility to tap into candidate networks around the country.

Faster time to hire

Recruiting is our business. Because of that core focus, we’re able to source, screen, assess and hire talent faster and more efficiently. The resources and infrastructure of Kelly Services give you the benefit of working with a specialty recruiting shop, without the specialty costs.

Consultation and flexibility for a lasting partnership

Building a network of qualified professionals takes time, resources, vision, and a discerning eye. Kelly is the original source of recruitment excellence. We're very selective, emphasizing connections with highly sought-after passive talent to secure those who will have long-term value in your organization. 

Our success is tied to yours, so we are not satisfied until your new hires have fully transitioned into their new roles. More than just a transactional talent supplier, you get a consultative partner in Kelly that values you as an individual, no matter the size of your business. Direct placement servicing options include:

  • Contingent Search
  • Retained Search
  • Engaged Search - a hybrid search arrangement combining the best features of contingent retained models
