Our talent focus:
Who we work with

HRSE’s decades of combined experience in retained, contingent and in-house recruiting has led to an impressive track record in successful talent searches for a range of people leader roles.

Beyond our focus on Director and VP of People & Director and VP of Talent roles, our team often works with people executives to lead other VP- and director-level functional searches--with recent role placements for head of rewards, head of people ops & systems, head of HRBPs and more. If you have another type of functional people role you’re looking to fill but you’re unsure if we can help, don’t hesitate to reach out.
