"The Carlisle Group and Kaitlyn Vinson came to us highly recommended, and still they exceeded expectations. Kaitlyn quickly became a trusted  member of our hiring team for a critical, yet niche, role. She led us capably - from crafting the job description and determining the must-haves vs. the nice-to-haves all the way through the offer letter and onboarding prep. And we succeeded in finding a great talent – experienced and a really good fit. No doubt, she will be our go-to recruiter for our next hire."

Robb -- Managing Director


“I worked with Kaitlyn as a candidate. She reached out to me when I was not actively looking for a new role, but she described a position and company in such a way that I was compelled to have a conversation. Working with Kaitlyn was a pleasure. Kaitlyn was personable, accessible, and kept me well-informed about the recruiting process. Though Kaitlyn was engaged by my (now) employer, I felt like she was working as much on my behalf to ensure a win-win. I look forward to being able to work with Kaitlyn for future recruiting needs at my new employer.”

Brooke -- VP of Sales
