Working with The Free Agent allows you to do what you do best: Focus on growing your business.

Effectively assessing talent requires a mix of skill and intuition honed from years of experience.  When it comes to vetting leadership, you need a well-rounded team who also understands the dynamics of fast growth and change–and the nuanced characteristics of those who navigate it best.

When we connect you with the right people, we help you significantly reduce risk in all areas related to mis-fit hires:

Beau’s team does what no other recruiting firm does: They find people who really “click” with our team and our organization.

There are plenty of smart people who can get the job done–but The Free Agent finds the ones who make tackling our challenges enjoyable and positive, and everyone is better for it.

Leader of technology SaaS startup, $20m+
Feedback from a Confidential Search for a $1.6 Billion Dollar Company Looking for a new SVP of Sales

“You level of professionalism, responsiveness, and engagement is far superior to the other firms I am actively engaged with.  I rarely have to send you an email to check in and never have to chase you down.”

SVP of Sales (Candidate)- $1.6 Billion Dollar Technology Company (Confidential Search)
The Free Agent Conducted a Confidential Search to help fill our Chief Product Officer Role

I’ve worked with many executive headhunters over the years – some not so great, and some spectacular ones. Beau Billington and team fall into the latter. After only one meeting reviewing our needs for our very niche, executive role, Beau submitted several qualified candidates that hit the mark in all key areas; in fact, the quality and fit were so spot on, it made my hiring decision that much harder deciding which candidate to select. We ultimately ended up with a fantastic hire who is meeting and exceeding all expectations. Beyond the superior quality and fit of the slate of candidates, Beau was extremely professional, provided superior candidate overviews, and his follow through and responsiveness was top notch – everything you want in an executive headhunter. Highly recommend!

The Free Agent has helped us fill important roles across sales, delivery, technology, and leadership.

“We first engaged with The Free Agent about 2 years ago. They have established themselves as trusted advisors to our business and to me personally, often extending beyond talent placement to talking through strategic initiatives. I have interacted with many other firms in the space and The Free Agent is the best, I highly recommend them.

I really enjoyed my conversation with [Free Agent] – he is fantastic. A lot of what he has done at [Current Company] directly aligns with what we are doing here – overhauling an old system + building and innovating.

“I wanted to let you know, you have done an incredible job staying in contact, staying involved, and helping to drive the discussion and engagement with both the client and me.  You are running laps around the competition in the executive search space. “

In the recruiting and talent acquisition space you will not find a better partner.

“I have worked with Beau for several years now, as both a candidate and a hiring manager, and his dedication and attention to detail and skill set is unmatched. In the recruiting and talent acquisition space you will not find a better partner than Beau.”

Cheryl Poole
Head of Client Relationships, Americas
I now get excited when The Free Agent submits a candidate because I know it’s someone we’ll strongly consider for the position.

“Working with The Free Agent has been an excellent experience. They take time to understand your business, so they can identify candidates that not only deliver, but also align with your culture and business values. Unlike other firms we’ve worked with, The Free Agent screens and fully vets candidates before recommending them.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Self-service simply means you are using our platform to interact with our curated candidates, posting your own positions, and managing the candidate funnel and overall process.

The guarantee period is the period of time in which we guarantee the relationship you have with a candidate that is converted to a resource. If the individual does not fulfill their obligations and or leaves within the grace period, we will replace the candidate at no additional cost

Payment on contract workers is due on the 1st and 15th of each month and the free agent will pay the contractor within 3 days of receiving payment from the client. Payment on the fultime side of the house is due 30 days after invoice, which is typically 30 days after the start of work

This is no problem and very standard- we prorate the aforementioned fees over a 6 month period and payment due for rolling permanent is the difference upon the amount that was already received.

Absolutely not- we have a multitude of workers that are interested in working on their time table and the obligation is ultimately up to our client and the contractor to determine what works best for each party. We have contractors working 40 hours and many that are working 10, 20, and even 30 hours.

We see a myriad of periods with month-to-month and 6 months being our two most popular. Ultimately the contract period is open and dependant on our clients needs and contractors availability

This depends on the actual need, but generally within 1-2 weeks we will begin funneling vetted candidates for your review and approval.
