Partners depend on us
SYPartners needed to hire a Talent Acquisition executive with a unique background to join their team and a recruiting partner who could conduct this nation-wide search for them. Simultaneously, they needed to outsource their talent acquisition to a trusted partner who could work directly with their hiring managers to fill other key open roles across the organization and deliver high quality talent.
They engaged us on a retainer basis to conduct the Talent Acquisition executive search and work as an extension of their team. Together, we successfully placed managers across Project Management, Design, HR and Administrative support. Our support empowered the HR team at SYPartners to handle their overflow with ease.
With an influx of new business, DH needed to bring on multiple creative and non-creative freelancers quickly as well as fill multiple senior level, full-time positions. At any given time there were 20-30 urgent open requests. Many times ad agencies would choose to engage multiple vendors to fill that many seats so quickly. Our partners at Digitas Health saw the value of working with just one agency they could trust who had a deep understanding of their business goals and culture they were looking to build.
Working as their dedicated partner, we gained key insights about the Agency’s vision and strategy which allowed us to attract many high-quality, diverse candidates to join them. Our work empowered our main points of contact at the agency to perform better in their roles by focusing on their bigger picture goals within the organization. We also played a key role in bringing more diversity into the agency at all levels and enriching their company culture.
A client contact that we had worked with previously started a new role as Resource Manager at DiD, a newly created position for the agency. Being new to the role, he wanted a recruiting partner who he could trust to help with hiring quality freelance talent quickly and within budget.
We started by doing a deep dive into the needs of the agency and scheduled a weekly standing meeting to get updates and support his changing needs. Every week, we brought in new talent to meet the assortment of roles our client needed to fill. In addition to gathering and filling the constant flow of new requests, we played a key role in managing the day to day logistics for freelancers to ensure they had a positive experience with the agency.
Our advertising agency partner was in the market for a Creative Director with a very unique mix of skills, experience, portfolio of work and leadership ability. Since this was an extremely targeted search and a bit of a needle in a haystack, our contact at FCB knew that NuWave would be the partner she could count on to find the right person for the job as quickly as possible.
We found our client an award winning Creative Director who met all their needs but during the offer phase, the talent happened to get another offer and it happened to be a better fit. Instead of convincing him to take this job, we advised him to follow his gut and accept the other job. We delivered the difficult news to our client and went back to the drawing board. Within a week, we presented a new candidate who was equally suited for the role but in her case, the position was exactly what she was searching for as the next step in her career. This Creative Director accepted whole heartedly and continues to thrive at the agency.
Why purpose-driven talent?
According to Inc, Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce by 2025 – and they are looking for socially responsible employers. When talent’s values align with your organization, they become driven to help realize your mission.
Talent should feed culture
Each new hire you make impacts the culture you’re building. We unite you with a diverse pool of talent who are passionate about your vision and will bring value to your organization.
Purpose driven talent outperforms
Research from Deloitte discovered that purpose-oriented companies have higher productivity and growth rates, along with a more satisfied workforce who stay longer with them. Every brand, start-up, non-profit, ad agency, and investor group has a unique purpose. We work across verticals and sectors to align you with talent that drives your organization’s mission forward.
Purpose with every role
We’ve placed talent from entry level to C-suite and everything in between. No role can be overlooked, because every piece of the puzzle is needed to build a rich, diverse and purposeful team.

“I’ve partnered with Greg Kunsman for over 10 years. In that time he and his team have proven to be the most effective and reliable recruiting team I’ve found. I have leveraged them for recruiting efforts across all channels. They have sourced and filled reqs for me from entry level to SVP, both contract and full time, creative and management, even specialized skill sets. When I transferred from the consumer space to healthcare, Greg was one of my first calls. We resource managers have countless demands on our time, many of which revolve around talent deficits. It is a relief to be able to call Nuwave and receive high priority support from them. They’ve made a huge difference in my ability to be an effective Resource Manager.”
“Working with NuWave has always been a great experience – in the ad world, we sometimes find out about needs days in advance, and having NuWave as a partner to help us fill those needs has been a huge benefit. Not only have they always produced candidates quickly, it is always candidates who not only hit the requirements of the position, but often they exceed them. NuWave is the first vendor on my list for any creative needs because of their candidate quality, quickness in identifying the right person, and most importantly their approach to partnering with agencies. I think of NuWave as an extension of my team, which makes working with them all the better.”
