Staffing, Recruiting & Consulting

A-1 CAREERS is a national, professional placement service with offices in the Kansas/Missouri and Colorado areas.  We provide professional support in contract, contract-to-hire and direct hire (retained, engaged and contingent) situations.

It is our goal at A-1 CAREERS to understand the job requirements, adapt to the client’s culture and provide professionals that meet the personality requirements as well as the skills.  With our unique double interview process we guarantee a higher success rate for our candidate placements.

Our clients know they can trust us to find the right people for the right situation.  We have formed true partnerships with our clients and are a vital extension of their Human Resources Departments.  We are THEIR partners.

We are pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2019, the healthcare staffing division of A-1 CAREERS has been incorporated as a separate company, A-1 Medical Staffing, with locations in Des Moines and Bettendorf, Iowa. Bruce J. Putman, owner of A-1 CAREERS, continues to be the majority owner of the new company, and Amy Sheaffer, Vice-President & General Manager, is also now an owner of A-1 Medical Staffing. A-1 CAREERS moves forward with growth plans for staffing in the Finance & Accounting and Office Support niches in Kansas City, Denver and the surrounding area.

“Amy and I have worked together for over 7 years and she has demonstrated repeatedly that she is an excellent day-to-day leader, strategic thinker and committed mentor that executes our tactical strategy for growth and customer service that exceeds expectations. I feel very fortunate that Amy has agreed to continue as both an owner and leader of the business as we focus exclusively on expanding our offering for staffing in the healthcare industry”.

We thank all of our customers, employees and vendors for making this next step transition possible and look forward to continuing to be a leader in the healthcare staffing industry for many years to come.
