What do you folks do again?52 Limited is a staffing agency focused on the creative and technology spaces in Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco. We can assist companies and individuals in two core areas. We are a contract staffing firm for leading brands, marketing and engineering departments, start-ups, design firms, advertising and interactive agencies. We are also a recruiting/placement firm linking employers and individuals for full-time direct hire or contract-to-hire positions.
I don’t live in Portland. Can you still help?Of course. We know the local industry well. In fact, we were the first locally-owned creative staffing agency in town.
How do you get paid?Our clients/companies pay us to connect them with perfect candidates for their specific hiring criteria, from skill sets to culture fit to salary requirements. There is NEVER a charge to an individual, even for general career guidance. We like cookies and booze, though. Usually not together but we’ll assess that on a case-by-case basis.
Can I do outside freelance work and still work with 52 Limited?Absolutely. We’re a resource to help you find fulfilling work but you should continue to pursue your own projects, as well.
What if I don’t like a job you’ve placed me on?Well, we don’t really “place” you on a job. We connect you to opportunities, explain the details, put you in front of hiring managers, and advocate on your behalf. Ultimately – and with all information in hand – you decide whether or not to take a job being offered by our clients. You’re the boss.
What if a company where you’ve placed me on contract wants to hire me?We high five! That’s why we’re here… to help you find good work and your employer find you.
How do you stand out from your competitors?Have you interacted with other staffing and/or placement agencies? Yeah, the bar is not high. We pretend it is anyway.
How do I hire talent through 52 Limited?Call us. Whether you’re looking for individual freelancers, full-time employees, or entire project teams, we can help.
Are contractors from 52 Limited covered by confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements?Yes. Every 52 Limited contractor signs confidentiality and non-disclosure documents to protect your business. They are also covered by our employer insurance, removing all risk of hiring from you.
I like to hire people on my own, why would I use you?We get it. Hiring people is fun. Wait, no it’s not when you’ve got competing priorities, limited time, and particular criteria.
