We love Engineering and Operations. The meticulous, logical-yet-creative nature of the skillsets attracts certain types of individuals, and with several decades of recruiting them, we’ve come to understand exactly who succeeds and why.

Headwaters Search spends countless hours networking and uncovering those passive engineering and operations professionals who are open to new opportunities. We vet, check, and recheck until we’re satisfied that our recommendations will meet the skillsets required for your position, and that the candidate is also an ideal fit with your corporate culture and internal dynamics.

“Liesch Associates had an opening that was totally impossible to fill, or so we thought.  I had met Dave Dodge through other business associates who had used his services.  I decided to give him a try and engaged him to do a search to fill the position. Within two months, mission accomplished.  Dave and Headwaters Search will get all of my future job openings”.  ~ Brian, CEO, Engineering Consulting Firm.
