Why Farla?

We deliver results. Period.

We have years of senior management experience and have built many successful teams. We don't start a RECRUITING mandate before speaking with the hiring manager to understand what success looks like for them.

Our unique ability to position an open role, allows us to meet with high quality candidates right from the start. We are then able to submit the right profiles to our clients.

We have a reputation for being honest, direct and helpful. We have excellent references.

I tripped in to recruiting many years ago due to a strong network and by being what poeple call a "Connector".

I am fortunate to be able to do the work I do, including partnering with interesting businesses and meeting terrific candidates at every turn. You know how people say 'when you love what you do you won't work a day in your life'? Well, I love what I do but I work every.single day. Is there something I don't know??

I started Farla to solve what I saw as two problems that were intertwined: First, businesses were tired of getting lousy candidates, whether from posting positions or from their recruitment partners. I was coming at recruiting from a different angle and felt it was time to raise the bar. Even my fee structure is different, and based on what my clients requested. Second, I realized that nobody really cares about a candidate, leaving candidates flailing around during a job search with no clear diection. Nobody deserves that. As such, I created job search services to give more people access to clear, important information they need in order to find work, and also to bring their best work to the table every single day.
