TEAMWORK IS OUR FOUNDATION
“If you ask us to take on your highest-priority projects, you will get me and Kathy both recruiting for you. This approach of having two talent acquisition professionals collaborate with ONE focus maximizes the quality of our service and will prove successful in bringing forth the best candidates for your team."
I needed to staff my team with top R&D talent in an accelerated manner. Kathy and John clearly understood our company’s needs and readily produced strong candidates that matched specific requirements, resulting in key hires. Agile Search has also been instrumental to filling a number of critical positions across our leadership team, positioning our emerging medtech company for success. They have become a trusted partner and are definitely a “go-to” firm in my mind.
Third Pole Therapeutics Arnold Oyola, Director, Systems Engineering
"Genuine, thoughtful, strategic- these are words that come to mind when trying to describe my experience with agile search. The agile search focus is truly on building lasting relationships and as such, a strong network, rather than the quick win that has become so commonplace in the business world today. From my first phone call, through the interview process, to signing an offer, and now with follow-up calls, it is clear that John and the Agile Search team really care about the people they work with. Agile search will be the first call I make if I decide on another change within the greater Boston area. A great experience with a truly personal touch!"
Bita Yektashenas Senior Quality Engineer - Global Medical Device Company
I’ve worked with several recruiting agencies since graduating college and entering the medical device industry. John and the Agile team are the first group that I have enjoyed working with. The industry contacts at Agile are a tremendous resource. However, the availability and honesty of the Agile team proved that they truly had my best interests in mind. I was able to get a great job in my preferred field after working with Agile. I hope to work with them again later in my career.

"I have been in touch with John and the Agile Search team for 10 years. I would like to thank them for helping me to land 2 dream jobs, both of which have made huge positive impacts on my career. John and his team genuinely care about their clients and I look forward to a continued relationship with them!"
Regina Wagner Director, Quality Assurance; Boston Area 'Top 3' Medical Device Company
I have worked with recruiters in the past, and while they have all been great, I have to say, Agile Search is definitely my favorite! You went above and beyond your role, to ensure a smooth path to interviewing. The communication was quick and flawless. I appreciated feeling like my job search really mattered, and that I wasn't just a resume in the pile. Thank you, again, for the utmost professionalism and warmth with which you helped me secure an interview, and subsequent offer.
