Experience matters and we are dedicated to proving that in everything we do. Compare our experience, expertise and professionalism to that of the typical IT recruiter with no technical background and little search experience and we're confident you'll easily see the difference.
In the "war for talent" we fight for you. We encourage you to read our bios, review our success stories and interview us. We welcome the opportunity to help you achieve your hiring or career goals.

BRS was recommended to me by an out of state CIO friend and colleague, after I had relocated to Atlanta to take over as CEO of a high-growth Atlanta healthcare company. We urgently needed to hire an IT Director to build out a team. BRS convinced me of the importance in utilizing their retained approach to quickly recruit hard to find talent and he was right.
They really took time to understand the company, our business and our short and long term needs and goals. They then did a tremendous job of finding and vetting excellent candidates and in the end, we had a difficult decision to make, which is a good problem to have. They kept me informed every step of the way.
I cannot say enough about their unique search methodology. It is so thorough and digs very deeply into candidates, their experience, motivation and character.
They understand that in finding the right person, cultural fit is even more important than experience and expertise. BRS was our go to recruiter, not just for the IT team, but also for other key members of my team.
