About Us

We help great companies connect with amazing creative talent.

Our Mission

To provide the world’s top companies with the best digital, creative, marketing and technology talent in the industry.

Our Story

At Onward Search, we’ve made our home in the space between job search and hiring needs. Yes, we help great companies find the digital, creative and marketing talent they need (fast!), but to us, our work means much more than that.

We are all about loving what we do. Our commitment to, and passion for, helping our talent connect with the perfect career opportunities is what makes us successful and keeps us on the cutting edge of the staffing industry.

And, despite the hours of hard work that go into making each and every match, our ultimate commitment is to providing the best customer experience possible. Simply put, we’ll never refer a candidate to a job that doesn’t exactly match their experience and career goals, and we don’t offer our clients talent that won’t precisely fill their hiring and cultural needs.
