About Paladin

Creativity begins with brilliant combinations.

At Paladin, we help connect talented marketing, creative, communications and digital professionals to businesses throughout the country. We don’t just dabble in these fields; we live in them, work in them, and evolve with them, making us a trusted partner to candidates and clients alike.

Shaping promising careers for our candidates.

We uncover stimulating new challenges and exciting opportunities for our candidates that are as good for their spirits as they are for their careers. Leveraging our reputation and our relationships, we offer access to more jobs than anyone else. But we go beyond matching resumes with job openings; we look at every job search as a process that takes nuance, commitment, conversations and an in-depth understanding of candidate and of the job market. Through this process, we make rewarding connections.

You can start the process by submitting your resume. Click here to complete our brief form, and we’ll start looking for your next great opportunity right away.

Building innovative teams for our clients.

For our clients.
We find the professionals our clients need to bring their ideas to life. We also offer flexible solutions that allow our clients to work with us and our talent in whatever way works best for them. These solutions include:

  • Contract Staffing: Sometimes, our clients need instant access to top talent in order to tackle special projects or launch new products. With thousands of pre-screened, qualified contract professionals ready to work, we can fill these needs quickly.
  • Contract-to-Hire: We give our clients the chance to put our top talent to work before they put a new full-time employee on their payrolls.
  • Direct Hire: We help our clients add the best permanent talent to their teams.

Much like creativity itself, we view each placement as a unique action — something that materializes when our accomplished recruiters bring a particular candidate’s skills and aspirations together with a client’s requirements and objectives. These combinations are inspiring to both our clients and our candidates — and, they’re what inspires us to do it time and time again.

Become part of a brilliant team: ours.

Paladin was founded in Chicago in 1990, with the goal of being the preeminent staffing agency in marketing. Thanks to its talented founders and recruiters and a focus on creativity, the company quickly distinguished itself and continued to realize growth into the 2000s, which eventually earned the attention of MPS Group. In 2007, MPS Group acquired Paladin. It was business as usual until 2010, when MPS Group was acquired by global staffing giant Adecco Group. Today, Paladin is part of the Adecco Group family of brands and focuses on connecting creative, marketing, communications and digital talent with opportunities at leading companies.

Paladin colleagues are not only at the center of brilliant combinations, they’re at the center of the creative landscape. They help talented professionals connect with leading companies, and they develop relationships and reputations that propel their careers forward.

If you want to put yourself at the center of a growing, dynamic and forward-thinking organization that plays a key role in enhancing marketing, the economy and careers, we have positions available now for Recruiters, Account Managers and Business Development Managers.
