With nearly 25 years experience in the IT Professional Services market, Centurion has the past experience to deliver on staff augmentation needs. Whether a client is looking to hire one contingent worker or a project team, while maintaining overall control and management of the project, Centurion has the flexibility and scalability to meet these requirements. We work with our client stakeholders to fully define the role of the individual with regard to skill qualifications necessary to succeed, but we take it one step further by delineating the organizational fit that would be ideal for a successful candidate in that role. This is accomplished through collaboration with the client manager to determine the optimal candidate background and experience that would work best in our client’s environment and team culture. Armed with this detailed information, our recruiting team sets out to find the best possible matches for the opportunities. Through a comprehensive screening process, starting from sourcing potential applicants, behavioral and technical interviewing, to complete validation of all information and experience collected, the most viable candidates are sent for review to the client team. Once a prospect is identified through the interview process, Centurion handles the onboarding of the candidate for engagement with our client. We then follow up with our contractors, aka Centurions, through a well-defined touch-point strategy to ensure the engagement is optimal for all parties.

With over 40 years combined experience, we have worked across a wide array of industries both in the public and private sector. We look forward to an opportunity to work with you and learn more about your specific technology challenges and share our experience.
It all starts with you - the hiring manager - we discuss the job description and the true requirements of the role, but we also go in-depth on the project importance as part of the overall company mission and what would be a cultural team fit.
Once the position is fully qualified, our seasoned recruiting team goes to work sourcing prospective applicants who meet the technical qualifications of the opening. A matching process is also undersway in which recruiters are searching for probable candidates who not only meet the skill requirements, but also have a similar background of companies worked for in like industry verticals that may be a fit for the new opportunity.
Now that a pipeline of potential talent has been established, we start getting to know the candidates - work history, credentials, personal information, current job status, career aspirations, and next assignment specifications. Our team has been extensively trained in behavioral interviewing and uses these techniques to fully understand the people we represent. It is during this part of the process where rapport and relationships are built.
When an individual successfully meets all the requirements for a position - meaning they are a technical, organization and personality fit - we then move to the validation phase to verify the information we attained during the process to-date. This authentication can be in the form of previous manager references, in-person technical testing, online skills assessments, background checks and/or employment verification.
As soon as the candidate has been fully vetted and deemed a suitable match for the new opportunity, our business development team moves the applicant through the client's hiring process via coordination of an interview with the decision-maker(s), positive feedback from manager(s) and closing of the candidate.
After the offer has been accepted, our onboarding team works with our consultant (aka Centurion) to complete all necessary company paperwork as well as any client-specific documents. Any employment checks needed are completed prior to the contractor's first reporting day. Then, our consultant care team follows up with the Centurion on their first day, first week, and every month thereafter to ensure a successful engagement for all parties.
Based on a positive experience throughout the process by everyone involved, Centurion will look to partner with our client on more opportunities in the future and help them grow their business while expanding our company simultaneously.
