Partnering with employers for customized recruiting and staffing services
At Merritt Staffing we strive to go beyond recruitment and job placement services and become partners with our clients. We do this by building collaborative relationships that are based on honesty, trust and integrity. By understanding each client’s business, culture and objectives, we are better prepared to enable long-term solutions for clients and candidates alike. The end result is improved efficiency, especially when legal support positions need to be filled quickly. And by allowing us to handle the staffing process and related services, local firms from startups to large companies can focus on what they do best.
Reduce turnover, minimize overtime costs and improve workflow
As a recruiting and staffing agency with more than 20 years of experience, we’ve seen regulatory changes, business cycles and an uncertain economy cause hiring needs to change quickly. If handled internally, the work of posting jobs, scanning resumes and interviewing can divert your company’s resources and reduce productivity. Our Connecticut and Westchester County legal recruiting and staffing services can relieve this burden, while helping to ensure that your legal department or law firm runs as smoothly as possible during times of transition.
Our comprehensive candidate assessments help ensure a good fit
Merritt Staffing meets with and thoroughly evaluates each candidate to provide clients with competent and qualified legal support staff. This screening process covers more than what candidates say they can do and what their resumes indicate. We review their past and current behavior to determine how they will perform at your organization.
Confidentiality and discretion throughout the placement process
You can count on us to provide complete confidentiality and discretion in our recruitment and job placement services. Merritt Staffing does not disclose the employer’s identity or the candidate’s identity until the appropriate time.
Recruiting services for legal support positions and beyond
