CLT Recruiters is an executive recruiting and staffing firm serving the construction industry within the tri-state area.  We believe that producing a quality candidate requires a comprehensive and thorough search, which is the hallmark of our firm.  We not only produce high caliber candidates that we have screened and vetted first, but also conduct background searches and reference checks prior to hiring for your peace of mind.  

We recognize that every company is different. Different organizational structures, different corporate cultures and hence unique staffing needs. At CLT Recruiters we work closely with our clients to truly understand their business and staffing objectives, and subsequently deliver top flight candidates.  We’re in this business to build long-term relationships, not just to make placements.

Our Process

The first step is always an in-depth conversation with you to learn about your company and your hiring challenges.  We take detailed notes and help you determine if a retained or contingency search would work best for your situation.  After receiving a signed agreement, we brief our sourcing specialists and they immediately reach deep into our networks to pinpoint the quality candidates you need.  We can assure you that no bots or computer programs are ever reviewing candidate resumes. Only a human can truly discern the value of a candidate, and that’s why we make both voice and face-to-face contact with each and every candidate.  After our thorough vetting process, we submit candidate resumes and biographies to our clients for consideration.

At CLT Recruiters, we manage the entire recruiting process for you, scheduling interviews, follow-ups, rejections, checking references, producing offer letters and final negotiations.  We know how busy you are in your everyday role and as such we strive to provide superior service to you during the hiring process and beyond.

Retained Services

Our retained search option is the highest level of service we provide.  This is a fully engaged search where the client has an urgent staffing need they are seeking to address.  With this approach, the client will make a partial payment up front to start the search. Services are guaranteed, and clients are given candidate exclusivity.  So when a new candidate becomes available, our retained services clients are the first to know about them. All candidates are screened, interviewed, verified and fully vetted.

Contingency Services

Our contingency agreement is the most common type of recruiting service agreement that we have in place with our clients. This allows the client to interview candidates that we present at no charge, and there is only a fee when a candidate is hired. All candidates are screened, interviewed, verified and fully vetted.
