Why Partner with The Brooke Group

We know your most valuable asset - your people!

Today's funded research environment is complex, competitive, and ever-changing. Institutions that can consistently recruit exceptional investigators not only thrive, but propel themselves to the forefront of their world.  Consider the following as you contemplate engaging The Brooke Group:


Think about the amount of time it takes for a hiring authority or search committee to identify, screen, interview, negotiate, and hire the best potential candidate. The Brooke Group has a proven process, resources, and a team to support your goals. We search, screen, qualify, and present only those candidates who meet your predetermined requirements - saving you and your institution substantial time and energy. And, our specialty is knowing (and already having information about) funded academic scientists with established research agendas.

Passive Candidates

Much of the top talent is very happy with their current position. They simply are not spending the time looking for a new position - they are dedicating their time to research, publications, and leadership or mentorship roles. The Brooke Group's skill is in sourcing the right candidate...not the most available candidate! There are no shortcuts. The only way to consistently hire the most talented people is to find ALL of them and, then, approach each of them. We will do this by searching dozens of information sources (some of which are not accessible to you), by accomplishing thousands of communications, and by connecting deep within a network that is painstakingly built only over time.


Many times a hiring manager/search committee is left to guess what is motivating a candidate. A candidate is much more likely to tell us why they would consider making a career move. We act as a third party negotiator concentrating on bringing the two parties to a mutually beneficial relationship.  What's more, our reputation is reliant upon our ability to clear "red flags," ask tough questions and mitigate risks to ensure both parties are making a good decision. The best candidates can be recruited by the combined efforts of our team and your institution.

Institutional Awareness

Our recruiting team works all day, communicating with hundreds of people, and by reaching out to thousands. We know your competitors, and we monitor their strategic objectives. We know who is doing the research, and who is publishing; we know who has a funded research agenda ... and who does not. We know what it takes to recruit an "Impact Player" from another institution. 

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you an expert at finding, attracting, and hiring funded academic scientists with established research agendas who might complement and/or provide leadership to your research teams?
  • What does it cost your institution in terms of productivity, reputation, morale, etc. to have/keep positions vacant?
  • How much time and/or resources will your institution save by using our services, especially when recruiting funded scientists who bring funding for research projects, and indirect resources?
  • What does it truly cost in time and resources for you to self-perform this function?
  • Do you have anything to lose by working with us on a contingent basis?
