Foundation – Performance – Commitment

Specialized Consultants
FPC of Raleigh recruiters are highly trained and skilled professionals who are specialists in their field. In fact, many of our consultants previously had successful careers within their current recruiting practice areas. Industry expertise and extensive networks can expand the opportunities to locate the right people to fill open positions, top grade departments, and ensure strong succession planning for organizations.

Understanding Your Needs
At FPC, we know that good hiring decisions involve much more than matching skills and experience to the job description. Your recruitment consultant will devote time and effort to thoroughly understanding the culture and personality of your organization so that he or she presents you with candidates who will fit smoothly and comfortably into your company. This is a critical element of any retention strategy. Similarly, candidate career goals are thoroughly discussed ensuring positions are the right next step for each person we place.

Access to Talent
The most talented and competent professionals, managers and executives are often not looking for a job. They are already engaged and in demand. Most are receptive to the right professional opportunity that would provide the next step in their career. At FPC we use our expertise, experience, connections, network and the trust we’ve earned in the recruitment industry to give you access to talent you might otherwise never meet.

Access to Hiring Managers
Many job openings are never advertised. But FPC of Raleigh recruiters work so closely with clients that we know when they are actively seeking a new addition to their staff  or just open to hearing about strong talent. Our clients trust us to present them with talent that will make their company stronger. We have access that you can not get on your own.

Confidentiality, Integrity and Trust
Discretion is vital during recruiting, interviewing and negotiating to fill a position. Credentials and privileged information are handled in strict confidence. Our goal is to serve as an effective and trustworthy liaison between potential employers and candidates. You can trust that each FPC consultant with whom you have contact understands and abides by this credo as well as our code of ethics. Our professionalism is the foundation of our success.
