Mission Statement

To our clients:

Our goal is to provide our clients with top talent who will not just add immediate value but will contribute to the long-term success of the firm. In order to achieve this, Locke Careers thoroughly screens our candidates using a performance-based hiring model. By looking at a candidate’s previous track record and discussing his/her personal goals, we can determine if the placement will be beneficial for both the candidate and client. We can improve our clients’ ROI by identifying the candidates who will not be a good long-term fit for the company. This ultimately saves valuable time as well as the financial costs associated with replacing under-performing employees.

To our candidates:

We have always recognized that searching for a new position is a job in itself. By acting as a resource at every step of the way, we make the process as smooth as possible while providing constant guidance. From start to end, Locke Careers takes a hands-on approach during your job search.
