Our Approach

Three services – one mission: enable next generation growth.

Put our strategic minds to work.  Clients look to us to draw upon our decades of recruitment experience with leading companies.  We leverage this experience to help your company evaluate and improve hiring and interview processes, provide specialized research services, training, outplacement assistance, and generate actionable business intelligence to maximize your competitive advantage.

  • Executive & Strategic Search – We uncover and fill the critical strategic talent you need to drive your business forward.  Whether you’re hiring in the C-suite, building out your leadership team, or have a critical strategic hire, we assemble a team of experts in your industry, including recruiters, research analysts, and account managers who are dedicated to finding the right match for your organization.  We work with companies of any size to find next generation candidates across all organizational disciplines, including specialized roles.  You’ll benefit from our deep expertise in four key industry sectors – BioPharma, Digital Health, FinTech and Financial Services, and Software.
  • Team ExpansionsCompanies trying to scale their commercial or research teams or are awaiting  FDA approval may have an HR team to support regular talent acquisition needs, but not necessarily the bandwidth for major hiring events. We provide hiring and logistics support to help drive team expansions for companies that want to scale quickly without straining their existing HR infrastructure.
  • Recruitment Process Outsourcing – If you need to scale fast, and you don’t have the luxury of hiring additional team members or placing an extra burden on your HR team, this solution is for you.  Our RPO services offer you the flexibility to scale up or down quickly and efficiently while keeping recruitment costs under control. We offer a dedicated team of blended employees for rapid expansions, providing end-to-end on and off-site recruitment support, including candidate sourcing, recruiting, scheduling and logistics, agency management, and candidate tracking and reporting.

Search powered by you.

Our search is completely powered by your vision for your future and influenced by your culture.  It is yours, and yours alone.  While our approach is customized completely to your business, all of our engagements benefit from the following:

  • Service that exceeds expectations – In our client satisfaction survey, the words used most often are “trusted,” “partner,” and “strategic.”  We’ll explore and fill your needs for today, but advise you with tomorrow in mind.  That’s what takes our service to the next level. From the onset of our engagement, you will have insight into exactly what’s happening with your search.  We believe that transparency is the key to a trusting relationship.
  • Search that goes beyond paper, social media, and “the network” – Our team continuously uncovers hard-to-find talent through an intense focus on targeting passive candidates and the most extensive research capacity in the region.  Our thorough candidate screening, using our behavioral interviewing methodology and technical screening assessments, ensures that you have access to the best talent in the market, not just in our network.
  • Experienced, flexible, and fast-moving team – Our experienced recruiters will partner with you to gain a deep understanding of your existing team, and define the skills and abilities needed to both complement and challenge your organization.  The Bowdoin Group understands how critical it is to your business to staff as fast as possible.  Our flexible process and agile team can accommodate your strict deadlines.

An industry-leading approach to your next hire.

We want to keep you focused on what you do best – growing your company.   Clients and candidates alike benefit from our relentless obsession with delivering excellent service.  We’re proud to say that we’ve been awarded Best of Staffing® for six years in a row, ranking us among the top 2% of recruiting firms in the US and Canada for Client and Candidate Satisfaction.
