One thing the traditional recruitment process does not do is forge relationships with candidates. Whitham Group invests the time and effort to really know our candidates and understand their professional development and goals. As a result, candidates selected by Whitham Group have a longer tenure than our competitors have been able attain.

We refuse high-pressure closing tactics and are not driven by commission.

For over 12 years our clients have relied on us to strategically seek out the perfect candidate for their critical hires. Each search is as unique as your brand and the position you are looking to fill. We have a refined the search process so we can present a selection of candidates that are seemingly tailored to the qualifications of your vacancy thus reducing ramp time and hitting the ground running.

Our network of professionals in the Renewable Energy Industry continues to grow. As Whitham Group regularly invests through sponsorship's, exhibits, volunteering, and attending events where your candidates are and our relationships with your prospects become more meaningful and valuable.


We stand behind our work and the relationships we have fostered over the past 12 years with our candidates. We have a 6 month to 5-year guarantee on our candidates. From your work culture and business goals — we are driven to find candidates who do more than just match a checklist of professional qualifications. Our recruitment process includes strategic alignment that matches values and reduces that risk of turnover.

Through our reputation, resources, and relationships we have collaborated with hundreds of businesses in search of the most eligible executive candidates. It has become our specialty to know how to effectively vet candidates that are not right for your company and present those that are a top fit.

One of the most frustrating things an employer could ever encounter when working with an agency is seeing candidates that don’t fit what you’re looking for. Whitham Group has a strict rule here, we will NEVER submit a candidate that doesn’t meet 3 criteria simultaneously:

#1. They must have at least 90% of the skills you the client outline

#2. They must be willing to accept an offer in the salary range YOU the client dictate.

#3. Must be motivated by something other than money to pursue the opportunity.  If a candidate doesn’t have all 3 of those simultaneously, we don’t send them.


With our different levels of RPO, you can choose to outsource part your recruiting function or all of it. If you have a start-up and need 20 roles filled or are a Fortune 500 who has 100 critical openings, Whitham Group will step in and take over and fill your multiple positions quickly and effectively. With our experience, we can increase your retention rates while being a superior ambassador for your organization.
