Why Doherty?

Why Choose Doherty As Your Employment Partner?

Our process allows us to concentrate on exclusive search assignments—meaning that our team of recruiting specialists takes the time to learn and understand your organization’s needs and culture to bring you only the most qualified candidates.


A successful placement is much more than a filled assignment; we consider our clients true business partners. Doherty maintains relationships with candidates and employers to ensure the transition process is a success.


A search firm is the most reliable way to find qualified talent. Our sole purpose is to bring you professionals who have the leadership, managerial and technical skills necessary to thrive in your organization.


Recruiting isn’t easy. Talented candidates very rarely put themselves on the market, which is why the right resources and expertise are needed to successfully motivate them to consider new opportunities.


Using a search firm allows you to conduct your search with complete confidentiality, including reaching out to candidates who work for competitors.


As part of our commitment to exceptional service, we follow a proven recruitment process, and guarantee a world-class, professional experience every step of the way.
