Defense Sector Recruiting

Ashton Search Group specializes in the technical recruiting and placement of experienced software, hardware, electrical, RF and mechanical engineers and technical managers for defense sector clients throughout the United States.

Ashton Search Group is a recognized leader in defense sector recruiting - and has access to a large number of candidates with active Secret or Top Secret clearances. In addition, we are one of a small group of technical recruiting firms that has a national presence in Systems Engineering, RF Engineering and Program Management.

Ashton Search Group recruits candidates with the following clearances:

Secret, Top Secret, Top Secret SCI, Top Secret EBI, Top Secret Poly, TS/EBI, TS/SBI, TS/SCI, SCI accesses, ISSA Lifestyle Poly, Top Secret SSBI, Top Secret CISP, Top Secret SAP, TS/SSBI, Top secret SCI full scope polygraph, DOE L, DOE Q, IRS-MBI, NATO Secret, DOJ NACI.

We take your requirement directly to cleared and qualified candidates - our efforts are directed at recruiting employed, experienced individuals that need to be alerted to your specific opportunity. They are not sending out resumes or checking job postings, because they are not actively looking... yet. We need to "tap them on the shoulder".

Ashton Search Group recruiters utilize their extensive defense sector knowledge, national reach, and established relationships with thousands of cleared candidates to benefit our clients. In recruiting, results matter. When the stakes are high, clients turn to Ashton Search Group, where success is a three decade tradition. Our experience is exceptional among recruiting firms working with defense companies.

Candidates are prescreened by our defense sector recruiters to determine their real depth of experience (not what their resume claims), and prequalified to determine if their their salary expectations are reasonable -- and if they are willing to relocate. Delivery of the best qualified candidates is the way we earn your business. When we have doubts or concerns, our client doesn't see the resume... precluding speculative submittals.
