The Jarvis Walker Group has specialized in the recruitment of information technology professionals since 1971. For over four decades, we have worked closely with client companies to identify and recruit the highest caliber candidates for challenging and rewarding career opportunities. We recruit on assignments, contingency and retained, for various industries throughout the tri-state area.
Our Partners, Associates and research staff come from diverse backgrounds in business and technology and, as a result, are able to offer insightful counsel to candidates and clients. Due to our uncompromising commitment to provide high quality personal service, we have established many credible, long standing relationships with the information technology community. We believe the quality of our work is reflected in the continuing impact and career growth of the many candidates we have introduced to our clients.
Jarvis Walker is affiliated with two other search practices: Technology Resource Management, which provides information technology professionals on a contracting/consulting basis; and The Foster McKay Group, which specializes in the recruitment of finance, accounting and tax professionals.
Our partners and principals bring to each search a thorough knowledge of information technology, as well as credible long-term relationships with many IT professionals. During most searches, the very best candidates generally do not respond to unsolicited inquiries. Our established relationships result in quicker and more positive responses from potential candidates and knowledgeable sources.
We respect the need to act in a timely manner when an important position in an organization is vacant. As a result, our approach to search is to work with a sense of urgency. We begin by customizing each search around a series of proven techniques: gaining a clear understanding of the position and the organization, preparing precise candidate specifications for the client’s approval, and researching the market thoroughly to identify prospective candidates.
Our success is driven by research, but hinges on proper assessment. We conduct extensive interviews with those candidates under serious consideration. Thorough, incisive reference checking is, of course, an integral part of our evaluation process and allows us to more accurately assess each candidate’s competence, character and abilities. We then select those individuals who we believe are best suited for the position.
At The Jarvis Walker Group, we take pride in the professionalism of our executive search practice, and we value the excellent reputation we have earned with our clients, our industry contacts, and even our competitors. Before a search is undertaken, we invest the time to understand the scope of our client’s activities and organization, to get to know key individuals, and to identify critical objectives. As a result, we are able to represent our client knowledgeably, screen candidates effectively, and provide counsel during the search.
