Our Zero-cost Business Model

To help you understand how our business model works – we are hired by companies to find candidates to fill specific job requests, and not the other way around. What this means for you is there is zero cost to you as a BOWEN candidate. While we can’t guarantee placement for everyone who applies, if you are a right-fit candidate for a job posting, we will present you to the employer and do everything we can to get you placed. We do not take a cut – 100% of your wages go to you!

Candidate Testimonials

“BOWEN went that extra mile to ensure they had a clear understanding of my expertise, capabilities and requirements. They consistently provided me with roles that were a good fit, and they were very thorough and followed up to ensure everything went smoothly. Authentic, sincere and personal, BOWEN is a different kind of recruitment firm. I’m now in a permanent role but will make sure I stayed connected with BOWEN for future developments.”

“As a contractor, one of my highest priorities is to work with a partner who has a solid industry reputation and expertise in managing contracts. From the initial onboarding to the contract end, my BOWEN representative was proactive and professional and delivered worry-free support throughout my contract. BOWEN’s mobile-friendly reporting site and online tools also made timesheet submittal easy and they pay quickly and on time, every time.”
