Inspired is one of the best Executive Talent Search Partners that I have worked with. They are an excellent relationship builder not only with candidates but with hiring managers. They are on top of things and keeps me in line at the same time. Whatever we need, they deliver. The team understands the culture fit as well as the technical skills required.
Also, Daren is very passionate about what he does and it shows! He came to our corporate offices and worked with us side-by-side to best learn about the team and it feels like he is an extension of our company. I value his contributions and would not hesitate to recommend him and Inspired highly to another company that is in need of technology resource recruitment.
Client/North American Director of Talent Acquisition
I have had the pleasure of working along side Daren as a Supplier to the MSP group we manage. Daren has been an absolute professional, always available to discuss upcoming projects, opportunities and challenges we've had long the way. Professionally, Daren is aware of the opportunities and challenges in the industry and brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. Personally, he's a kind and thoughtful person to work with - which in the ever-changing world of contingent labor staffing, is a very nice thing to have on your side.
Client/MSP Program Manager
I have spoken with a number of recruiters and I have come to appreciate - by working with Daren and the team at Inspired - the value of a professional doing thoughtful work in a field where there are far too many boiler rooms in faraway lands, ethically challenged yes men and black holes where "no response" is considered an answer.
Client/L&D and Talent Development Executive
Inspired has been a truly responsive and flexible partner. On more than one occasion, they have found extremely capable niche talent to fulfill my company’s needs. They do not blink when aggressive time frames are requested and has always come through. Daren is a fantastic partner and I appreciate his ability to keep his composure and calm, pleasant demeanor no matter what he’s handed.
Inspired (and Daren) are one of the few professionals I have worked with who have the insight to understand the needs of the client and present candidates who match the skills.
Client/Director of Recruiting
I would highly recommend Daren and Inspired Talent Solutions. They very clearly understood the needs of his client but also myself the potential candidate. Daren identified that my personality would be an ideal fit for the position and was able to effectively communicate it to me. He provided all of the logistics for me to meet with the client company, assisted with the negotiations, and followed through until the offer was received. He and Inspired made this job transition the smoothest that I have had. My transition to this new company is the smartest move I have made, and Daren is the reason why.
Client/Global Director of Engineering
I have had the pleasure of working with Inspired Talent Solutions (ITS) over this last year as we continue to build our US Engineering capabilities. During part of this time, we sought out and used two other recruiting firms in order to expand our search. We quickly learned that Inspired provides a high level of quality service and candidates not found in the competition.
First, let’s start with what Daren and Inspired are not. They are not a resume shop that will simply push resumes over to you that have a couple key words of value. They are not a hands-off recruiter working with hundreds of clients who won’t get back to you in a quick and defined fashion. They are not a company that cares more about their retention fee and less about their clients.
Inspired Talent Solutions are recruiters who will work with you to understand your corporate culture. They will handhold candidates through the process making sure they are well informed of the position for which they are applying and the culture of the company. They are recruiters who will follow up and make sure the employees they helped place are working out.
I have been extremely satisfied with Daren’s ability to bring forth quality candidates. And, I would highly recommend him for your technical recruiting needs, especially if you are a small customer with a unique culture who is looking for very specific skill sets.
Candidate then Client/Senior Technology Manager
Typically when you are contacted by a recruiter he or she immediately moves into the "pitch," trying to determine how you could fit into the position regardless if it's a good match for both parties. There are those rare occasions when the recruiter seems to have actually read your resume fully, done research and has a good fit. Then there are those even rarer occasions, like the experience I had with Daren and the team at Inspired, where the recruiter is interested, first and foremost, with who you are as a person and what you want for your career. The team at Inspired made certain that not only did my background match the position's needs, but that my personality matched the company's culture and my ambitions aligned with the opportunities. ITS provided the right amount of assistance and guidance throughout the entire process; it was by far the best experience I've had with a recruiter.
Nowadays, I know Daren and Inspired from the other side of the table; they are diligently finding candidates for positions I need to fill. Those same qualities I experienced with Daren when he was recruiting me hold true as he is recruiting for me. Not one candidate is brought without a discussion about who the person is and why they believe they would be an asset to our company. The people we have hired through Inspired have become just that, assets to our company. Even when I challenge Inspired with difficult positions to fill, the attention to intra-personal details is unwavering. I would recommend Daren and ITS to anyone who is looking for a new job/career/opportunity and to any company looking to hire quality employees.
Daren and Inspired are the best recruiters I’ve ever dealt with. He is professional, efficient and courteous. He expedited the process and went the extra mile to send me helpful tips.
It is comforting to know that in a game where you can often feel like a number, there is a recruiting firm like Inspired Talent Solutions – I would recommend using Daren Bitter and Inspired for your recruiting needs as they will comprehensively cover all bases. As a prospective employee, expect Daren and the Inspired Team to be prompt and thorough in getting to the heart of your talents. He has a keen eye to details and a passionate dedication to the ART of recruiting.
Client/Audit Solutions Delivery Executive
Inspired was extremely effective and professional in sourcing a critical and niche role for me. While we exhausted all recruiting channels to fill this role quickly, Daren and Inspired was the only recruiter who actually spent the time and energy to fully understand our needs and priorities. They provided top-flight candidates that were hired quickly, integrated into our IS&T model and performed very well.
