Job Description

To the people we serve, Vaco is more than just a name.

It's a revolutionary thought process, a game-changing business model, and a loud-and-clear rallying cry for entrepreneurial spirits who want more.

Yes, Vaco provides expert consulting, permanent placement, executive search and strategic staffing for companies across the country and around the world, in all kinds of different industries. We place qualified candidates in hard-to-fill positions and solve tough problems for businesses. But most importantly, we help people find freedom.

Freedom from a soul-sucking job. Freedom to land in a place that fits today, and one that fits in the future. Freedom from chasing the talent needle through the resume haystack, on repeat. Freedom to find clarity in chaos, to lean into transition and achieve growth. Freedom to thrive, on both sides of the equation.

Vaco: Liberating talented malcontents since 2002.

The Vaco story begins with three rebellious veterans of bureaucratic "Big 4" accounting and staffing mega-conglomerates. Together, they set out to build a new kind of recruiting company: a place where the best and brightest would be free to reach their full potential, and where the most brilliant and passionate outlaws would happily choose to spend their entire careers.
