ABOUT US

Grey Search + Strategy provides customized, strategic recruiting and branding services for a wide range of company types and sizes—from smaller organizations on a fast growth track to larger, fortune 500 companies seeking a solid, consistent and invested partner. From mid-level to executives, Grey excels at finding the best talent for the best opportunities in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, medical, construction, telecommunications, transportation and more.

Unlike traditional firms that focus more on “fill” than “fit,” Grey treats every opportunity as unique. So we go to uncommon lengths to explore that “grey area” beyond ink and paper to understand what makes our clients and candidates tick. We visit every client facility, collaborate with leadership, meet with staff, ride along with sales reps…whatever it takes to become a virtual extension of your business, to enhance your brand, and customize a search strategy that delivers team members that truly fit your culture—not just fill your job.

And Grey takes it up another notch over other firms by integrating branding capabilities into our arsenal, helping us strengthen all of the ways candidates and customers encounter your company, helping you make positive, lasting impressions. With whip-smart strategy, dynamic design and captivating content, we ensure every element of your brand is working for you—not against you.
