About Us

Alliance Recruiters operates as a full-service, woman-owned staffing firm. Our focus is serving venture capital and finance sectors in the San Francisco Bay Area. We place a range of candidates with special focus on executive and personal assistants, accountants, administrators, office managers and receptionists.

More than 98% of our clients and candidates find us through personal referrals. We believe this occurs through our passion for making quality, long term matches, which don’t just impact hiring. Our matches also influence corporate culture, job retention and company performance.

Every Alliance Recruiters team member holds to the highest standards of integrity and honesty. Our team works hard to find candidates who reflect the core principles of our company. We understand about chemistry and know intangibles are absolutely vital for successful placements. We take the time to meet with all our clients and candidates to learn about what you can’t read on a job description or resume.

Whether you are an individual seeking a new challenge, or an employer looking for a valuable team member, Alliance Recruiters is dedicated to helping you.
