Placement Options

“Recruiting and placing architects, interior designers and building design professionals is our only focus”


Many professionals desire an alternative to traditional employment–especially if they feel pigeon-holed or want a more flexible schedule. Our Project Placement offers you that alternative.  We match job seekers and hiring firms on a project basis, ensuring they share similar design sensibilities, approaches and goals. We’ve found that job seekers who avail themselves of our services for one-to-three year periods gain a competitive edge in terms of variety and breadth of experience. Armed with enhanced portfolios when reentering the job market, they can command more responsibility and career growth.  Earn IDP credits for project-based work.

Have you ever had “buyer’s remorse” after accepting a full-time position or jumping at the first offer to come along? You’re not alone: Many job seekers choose to work on a trial basis before making a long-term commitment. Our Project-to-Permanent Placement option provides an alternative. Job seekers will start on a project basis under the expectation of a permanent option. Give yourself and your employer time to decide if it’s the right fit.

Be sure your career goals are met

Layoffs Outplacement Option

No one looks forward to layoffs. Outplacement services provide employers a specialized career support to employees who are leaving a job through no fault of their own. This is generally a service that a company offers as an employee benefit when a layoff is about to occur. The company contracts with an outplacement service to provide this support at no cost to departing employees. We use our experience and solutions as a leading placement firm to help employees re-establish a job as soon as possible.

Payroll Outsourcing Option

Place temporary, freelance, or project-based consultants that you have independently sourced, onto our payroll.  For a nominal fee added to the rates you have negotiated directly with your workers, we will manage all back-office functionality including paying the fees of your workers. Employment laws regarding the direct hire of independent contractors, classification of employees and payment of overtime, are difficult to navigate and could leave your organization exposed.
