WHY WE DOMINATE

WHY WHITHAM GROUP DOMINATES OVER ALL OTHER SEARCH FIRMS
Whitham Group is an executive search firm originating from the Bay Area. We are a team of experienced, professional executive recruiters who provide the highest quality candidates for our clients. We understand that finding the right headhunter to represent you in the five, six, and seven-figure talent market is a mandate. The quality of your management opportunities are often tied to perceptions about the quality, credentials, and experience of the messenger you choose to engage.

Whitham Group is the messenger of corporate career opportunities, yet we are also salespeople, entrepreneurs, serial networkers, brand ambassadors, and an extension of your current leadership team. We make crucial judgments about who should be given an opportunity to compete for positions within your organization and who should not. Our team are experts at making the most crucial candidate screening decisions.

Whitham Group is already immersed in the renewable energy industry and has a vast network of professional contacts. An All-In-One Staffing Firm cannot keep all of those contacts fresh. We operate exclusively in renewable energy and we know all of the players in the industry.

WHAT SETS WHITHAM GROUP APART
We hold ourselves and our clients to a high set of standards. We only make promises we can keep. Our track record speaks for itself. We work just as hard protecting your reputation as we do our own. The heart of Whitham Group is our people. We go to great lengths to hire employees with the highest character, energy and an over-the-top service mentality; motivated, dedicated, and personable. Our team builds lasting relationships, not just simply trying to fill job requisitions as fast as possible to get a fee. It’s one of our biggest differences from other firms.

WHY OUR RECRUITING APPROACH WORKS
We do not use the boards for your search like 95% of other search firms do. What most employers do not know is that the majority of search firms take your retainers or fees to have their researchers surf the boards and charge you between 25%-33% for service that results in marginal candidates. We actually go after top performers that will add value to your organization.

PIT US AGAINST YOUR CURRENT SEARCH FIRM(S)
We love a little healthy competition and have gone up against other search firms, sometimes as many as ten in the selection process with potential clients and Whitham Group walks away the winner and so do our clients. Our firm is in demand not only for our stellar candidates, exceptional service, but our fees are the most reasonable in the industry. Whitham Group will show you top candidates that other firms do not have access to or are not able to recruit without gouging you with inflated fees.
