Are you an SSi Person?

We aim to build relationships that go beyond simple transactions and know that by putting people first, success will be the inevitable result. Not like your typical staffing and recruiting organization, we redefine the way our clients find talent and our consultants find work by putting people first. Whether you are the recruiter, the hiring manager, or the tech talent, we all must do our part to positively impact how people work.

Start Your Journey

You are a special kind of consultant. You have an eye for the future, engaging in exciting new opportunities, dropping knowledge and effecting change. You hit the ground running for clients eager to put your tech talent to use. It’s a different type of employment journey for you – from the recruiting and interview process to the onboarding and acclimation to a new role. Good communication is key and exceeding your expectations is our paramount goal.
My SSi recruiter understood my skill set and knew how to engage with the hiring team, knew where I would be the right fit and made it happen.
SSi Consultant

The entire team was absolutely phenomenal, professional, and very helpful in 100% of my needs! I would recommend my associates to SSi People based on my experience with them. I wish them all continued success as they are a great representation of the SSi People organization.
SSi Consultant
Pharmaceutical Company
SSi People has been and continues to be a pleasure to work with. My personal consultant contacts me weekly to check in and see how I am doing and if there is anything that she can help me with. Having a personal consultant is a bonus. I am proud to be working for SSi People!

Find your SSi Person

If you are looking for headcount, you’ve come to the wrong place. Placing consultants just to fit the bill is not our MO. Instead, we actively engage in the decision-making process with our clients to help them build the best workforce that suits their needs today, and tomorrow. We need you to be successful so our consultants can be successful. It’s a great working formula.
I most like SSi's partnership and quality of candidates submitted. SSi continues to be a vendor that "get it" especially working in a vendor neutral environment. SSi and has proven to be a collaborative and thoughtful partner to our PMO--ultimately, a vendor that we know will show up. Lastly, the quality of candidates that SSi submits remains high-- often resulting in conversions that become valued Associates within the organization.
Fortune 100 Retail Client
The SSi People team is quick to respond to not only requests but inquiries our teams may have on market conditions or skillsets. All around they are a good partner.
Fortune 500 Banking Client
SSi is one of the most reliable supplier partners I work with. I know that if there's anything we need - whether it's filling a unique req, receiving feedback on why a req is difficult to fill, taking action in the VMS, managing a worker's assignment, etc. - I can rely on them to do so in a timely manner.
Global 500 Energy Client
SSI folks are very responsive and knowledgeable regarding my questions.
SSi People Client
Professional, clear communication and payroll dept was very good on follow-ups.
SSi People Client
Communication, interactions and personal touch makes SSI People a great company to be a part of.
