Amanda Saylor (#4518) has made her first split placement since joining the staff of Sedona Staffing Services in Dubuque, IA, USA.

Amanda provided a Facilities Engineering Manager in the Packaging Industry, to Steve Morris (#1118) of Van Grace Associates, LLC in Shrewsbury, MA, USA.

Steve said he first connected with Amanda for a Manufacturing Managers job in the late fall of 2018, which was ultimately filled by another NPA member. The same client then gave him an assignment for a  Facilities Engineering Manager in Clinton, IA and he contacted both recruiters again.

Amanda said: "Steve proactively reached out and asked if we (Sedona) had any potential candidates for his longer term client in NE Iowa (our backyard). Steve obviously has a great relationship and pulse on his client. Within 24 hours of submitting the candidate to Steve, he connected with my candidate and had the resume in his client’s hands for review. The client met with the candidate a few days later and an offer was made and verbally accepted within 8 calendar days of my original submittal to Steve. Steve’s commitment to follow through with my candidates and great client partnerships make me excited to partner again on a placement in the near future."

"I have long term relationships with a number of companies head quartered in New England and the plant in Iowa is a very tough location to recruit for," Steve said. "If it wasn’t for Amanda we could still be working on finding candidates. I need recruiters like Amanda to help me with these assignments. She found what I wanted and stayed in the background thru the process unless I needed her assistance."

"As the saying goes, 'but for,' we would be still looking for candidates and not sending out an invoice this Friday," Steve said. "Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Amanda."

This is what makes a split placement network so valuable - having trusted partners in regions that you don't work, that can help you fulfill your client's needs! Great work, Steve and Amanda!
