we’re more than just recruiters

Make no mistake about it—we’re HR people to our core. We think, breathe, and care about people before anything else. But that’s not all we are. 

We’re also industry people. For over 25 years, we’ve been polishing our expertise and sharpening our recruiting tools in many different industries all across the world. We know the ins and outs of your field. We know both the challenges and the opportunities you face. And, most importantly, we know how to identify the right people who can step in on day one and make a difference.


We know how hard hiring can be on your own.

Today, competition for leading talent is extremely fierce, especially in certain industries. An organization can face many different hiring obstacles that can limit their ability to effectively grow. At Kuhn Global Talent, we help you walk right over those obstacles as if they were never there in the first place. If any of these concerns sound familiar, give us a call today to learn how we can help.

  • Hiring talent on a timeline that works for you
  • Engaging and attracting top passive candidates
  • An overworked internal hiring department


Over the years, we've done a little bit of everything. But we do specialize and have vast networks of top talent and key relationships in select industries. You can learn more about each one below.




We work quickly to understand your company culture, organizational goals and the current experience and skillset required for the career opportunity. We then work effectively to provide valuable, qualified candidates for your selection process.


Our active use of modern recruiting tools allows us to be on the lookout for professionals that exhibit a high level of expertise, creativity, leadership and success. We constantly engage with individuals and groups to stay connected to trends across a variety of industries to better isolate the skillsets you need.


The success rate of our placements is not limited to the initial hiring but extends beyond to see the long term engagement between the company and the candidate. We stay connected with placed candidates and find that even after two or three years they are still happy, often have been promoted, and are enjoying professional success.


At Kuhn Global Talent, we believe our purpose is to connect individuals and companies so they build meaningful relationships that provide growth and value. We view our relationship with you the same way. 

Everything we do, every service we provide is built upon the foundation of candidate quality and ironclad relationships. We firmly believe the quest for talent is best pursued, not in cyberspace, but in building and sustaining long-term relationships based upon personal trust and genuine care. When you partner with us, we commit ourselves to this fundamental standard for each step in the search process.

“Jim confidentially recruited a new President for the Americas Region of my company. I talked to a previous colleague in another industry sector who recruited an American President for his company a while ago and he recommended me to get in touch with Kuhn Global Talent in Ohio. I went over and met with Jim and quickly developed trust in him. He found and presented three solid candidates to me within a short time, and I selected one of them who had previous experience in our type of industry. Even with the challenges that COVID-19 has presented, we successfully hired a uniquely well qualified individual.”
