Flat30, LLC combines a fresh, new value laden recruitment model with time honored, uncompromising standards of service, reliability and integrity. We focus obsessively on quality of execution, paying careful attention to every nuanced detail of the executive recruiter’s tradecraft.
Flat30 was founded by Dave Shirey, a veteran SaaS sales leader (Taleo, Saba), former retained search consultant in enterprise software (The Alexander Group), and founder of FM Sage Partners, LLC (a nationwide search firm serving the health care facilities and engineering profession).
Flat 30’s mission? Work for inspired clients! Serve visionary firms that aim to change the world. Restore the faith of talent acquisition leaders wearied by being under served and overcharged. Flat30’s culture? Authenticity. Straight answers, genuine effort, unvarnished feedback, honest opinions, and a sense of humor. This forthright work style has a way of aligning us with culturally similar clients and candidates, much to our delight.
What category of recruitment is Program30?
Program30 exposes legacy retained search as the overpriced, under serving “entitlement” it has become. Clients choosing contingent search align loosely with firms that juggle lots of projects, always chasing the lowest hanging fruit. We call our new category Convergent search. It sits at the convergence of five crucial elements that DEFINE value for clients:
- Retained search quality, focus and commitment
- Refund-guaranteed fast execution
- A simple, fair, low FLAT FEE
- A robust, unconditional placement warranty
- Authentic people communicating transparently
