Building a better staffing company
Apex Systems is the 2nd largest IT staffing and services firm in North America with over 60 branch locations nationwide. We help match top IT talent with great companies in all industries. In 2013, Apex placed over 20,000 tech professionals with clients across the country.
Apex Systems was founded in 1995 by Brian Callaghan, Win Sheridan and Jeff Veatch, three friends who met at Virginia Tech. They were inspired to start Apex for three main reasons – to treat job seekers better, to provide a better service for companies, and to build a company where the best recruiters and sales staff would want to work.
The Founders felt too many recruiters weren’t treating job seekers the right way. They failed to return calls. They didn’t give closure. They misrepresented the job. Some even came across as sleazy. It was a frustrating perception of the staffing industry, so they set out to change it.
Believing that relationships and trust should be the foundation of the Apex service model, the Founders pledged to only hire the most motivated, friendly, and capable staff. People committed to excellence in all they do and go above and beyond to meet the needs of others.
The Founders established strong core values of doing the right thing, making others better, finding a better way to get the job done and setting the professional standard. These are the guiding principles that Apex employees use to provide the highest level of service to customers and contract employees.
Apex has grown tremendously throughout the years. The company is reaching toward $1 billion in revenue and has a nationwide presence in more than 60 markets, over 1,250 clients and nearly 1,100 employees. In 2012, Apex embarked on the next phase of growth by joining On Assignment, a leading publicly-traded professional staffing firm specializing in the growing information technology, life sciences, and healthcare sectors.
Apex employs hundreds of Recruiters and Account Managers to help match top IT talent with great companies in all industries. We have over 60 branch locations nationwide and a National Recruiting Center that supports the entire country. In addition, Apex also has staff dedicated to supporting the most in-demand skills.
We want you to succeed in your career and we’re with you throughout the process – from the interview to the last day of your contract and during your search for the next position. After our initial discussions about your skills and availability, we search for opportunities that meet your profile and match our clients’ needs.
