  • Enjoy searching high and low for valuable employee and contractor additions to your team
  • Create a welcoming space for new team members, ensuring they have a smooth ride for the duration of their contract
  • Coordinate and inspect contractors’ work, identifying tasks that can be performed in a cheaper, safer, cleaner, or more efficient manner
