Since 2003, clients nationwide have trusted Becker Wright Consultants (BWC) to help them recruit top talent in a number of industries. Jennifer Wright is the founder and force behind this Austin-based executive recruiting firm. “You need someone to “sell” your company to top-quality, passive talent, most of whom are still working,” explains Jennifer Wright, founder of Becker Wright Consultants, a nationally known recruiting firm specializing in placing professionals at management level and above. “We diligently research and network to find candidates who may not be looking, but who are top talent in their respective fields. We take the time to understand your corporate culture. Then, we recruit the right candidates in a timely manner.”
Not only will Jennifer and her recruiters work with internal HR departments to find the ideal candidate who meets a client’s qualifications and fits their corporate culture, but they will draw from their extensive database of candidates and use their thousands of connections. . And while you may think that a self-directed candidate search is “free”, consider the costs to your business. Conducting an executive search can be time consuming, to say the least, but less quantifiable is the cost of taking you from what you do best—focusing on your core business.
Jennifer started BWC after several years working in larger recruiting firms, because she had a vision of establishing a boutique firm with personalized service, one that offered a blend of both candidate and client awareness and professionalism in the field of recruiting. Since the founding of the firm, BWC has enjoyed a string of success in bringing in qualified associates to some of the top companies in America and, to date, has had a hand in hiring over 250 associates nationwide and assisting over 30 corporations including major retailers, such as Starbucks, Ann Taylor, and Chico’s FAS, and Chipotle, to name just a few.
While Jennifer began with specialty recruiting in retail and restaurant development positions, BWC quickly evolved into serving other industries, such as telecom, medical, oil and gas, sales, high-tech, advertising, and others. All of her recruiters bring years of expertise and specialized knowledge to their respective fields, not to mention industry contacts.
Though BWC works with major corporations across the country, working with local clients allows them to observe the high-level of client satisfaction first-hand. In fact, BWC recruiters have successfully placed 7 candidates with local companies within the last 2 months. “I really enjoy the thrill of being able to make a successful placement in our own community that a national recruiting firm could not”, says Jennifer. A perfect example is BWC’s recent work with local gaming company, Sneaky Games. Says David Godwin, CEO of Sneaky Games, “Even though they are not part of the traditional game industry, Jennifer and team have produced for us quality candidates that are better and more qualified than those coming from the typical game industry recruitment firms – and they brought them to us fast. They have delivered more target candidates to us in four weeks than the three other firms looking for us combined.”
Jennifer has been active in the Lake Travis community for years serving on the board of the Lake Travis Education Foundation (LTEF) for an extended term of 4 years, various PTA and PTO Boards as well as being a member of the Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce.
