Our 20-year commitment to the healthcare community (formerly founders of The First String Healthcare) is deeply rooted from our personal experiences of extraordinary care and uncompromising compassion during life’s most challenging times. We fell head over heels and committed ourselves to a profession that would allow us the privilege of spending our days advancing healthcare professionals causes and careers.
We are absorbed in the intangible benefits of giving back and measure our success accordingly. Our history of providing financial, educational, and professional assistance to healthcare individuals, associations and organizations is unparalleled.
From the very beginning, we have remained very challenged and uncomfortable with the traditional self- serving delivery and fee model of our industry.
We set our sights on change, innovation, and the path to create true lifetime partnerships. Our approach is continually validated through significant outcomes and years of industry leading reputation.
By the time I decided nursing was the career for me, I had five children and could not find a clear path to achieve my goal. I am in awe of healthcare workers and the difference that they make in every community. Because of this, I generate great personal happiness by being able to support professionals and the facilities that they work in by taking some stress off so they can focus on the care of patients and families.
I am passionate about the healthcare industry simply because of the people I
get to work with. Not just Lucy and Brad, who I have learned so much from, but the Nurses – Especially. I am truly inspired and humbled of what these incredible humans do day in and day out. I believe in giving back to this community and showing my appreciation by creating a warm, supportive, personal and quality experience for both our candidates and our clients.
They say that when you are doing what you are meant to be doing, it doesn’t feel like work! For me, every day is different. I meet, learn, and problem solve with creative, smart people – and I’m inspired by a healthcare community that serves others selflessly. At Hireup, we want to do things differently and enhance the client experience by being industry disruptors. I really believe in our approach – we help hospitals deploy their resources efficiently, advance and champion the best in class leaders, and give back to healthcare causes that we value.
Giving back has always been my happy place. I am blessed that my chosen career provides me with the opportunity to make a difference beginning with the healthcare community that I support all the way to the patient outcomes at the bedside. My passion of volunteering at Children’s Hospitals has only deepened the level of respect I have for the healthcare industry as a whole. Each and every day I strive to help others and make as much of a positive impact on each and every person I encounter.
I think gift giving is pretty awesome!! “After becoming a new mom, I decided to leave my corporate job in the entertainment industry to be home with my little ones but quickly realized I was missing a creative outlet. I am humbled and honestly, still pinching myself, to be working with this amazing team where I have the opportunity to recognize and show appreciation to the incredible healthcare professionals for the essential role they play. Now more than ever, I feel extremely passionate about delivering thoughtful, memorable and motivating gifting experiences to our candidates because each of these recipients deserves to feel as special as they truly are!!
There are few professions that impact the community so directly, and healthcare happens to be one of those careers. I feel so grateful to wake up every day and get the opportunity to work with the leaders and clinicians that are impacting communities across the country. We’ve all had our personal ties to healthcare and remember those that have helped us in our times of need, just like we remember our teachers growing up. My goal is to be a recruitment partner, providing honesty and transparency to our candidates as they navigate the process. I find so much joy in the ability to form lasting relationships with these leaders and find inspiration in their accomplishments.
Losing my mother to cancer as a young adult had a profound trajectory on my career path and desire to serve. The need for strong leaders within the healthcare industry for our communities is more prevalent now than ever before. I am so grateful to work with these individuals as they drive moral, ethical, and quality healthcare in our facilities throughout the country. They inspire me every day, and I am so grateful that my chosen career path allows me to give back to the leaders and clinicians that have made such a positive impact on my life.
Creating memories and experiences for the people I care about has always been a top priority of mine and a huge part of my life. I started my career creating memories for the Walt Disney Company as a character performer and attended numerous charity and volunteering events in the healthcare industry, but I knew I wanted to make a bigger difference. Hireup is the perfect fit, based on our strive to understand our client’s and candidate’s needs and focusing on empathy and compassion while doing so. With everything that has happened recently in the world, nothing is more fulfilling than being able to match our healthcare leaders to the perfect role. It not only makes a difference in their lives and mine, but in the communities that they go to as well. Being able to help change lives with incredible work opportunities is an amazing feeling, and I feel incredibly grateful to do what I do with such an inspiring company.
Healthcare is an essential profession that ensures individuals have access to the medical treatments and resources they need to maintain their physical and mental health. As a former teacher, I have always been passionate about building connections and helping others. Now, having the opportunity to work with healthcare leaders who inspire me is truly fulfilling. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to support the professionals who provide vital care for our communities. My goal is to provide our interim leaders with the best possible experience and support to help them succeed in their assignments. I am proud to be a part of a team that helps to bring the best leaders to the healthcare organizations that need them the most. I am grateful that my transition from teaching has allowed me to continue making a positive impact in our communities through healthcare.
Right leaders in the right positions has always been critically important for hospitals but even more so now as hospitals determine their new normal following a traumatic and difficult prolonged period of dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic. When key leaders leave their roles or the organization, expectations, responsibilities, and deliverables remain. Quick transitions or unplanned vacancies are no match for the Hireup team! They are available, communicate intentionally and honestly, and provide a consultative approach that I truly value. Having the right leaders in place is critical, and so is having the right strategic partner. I am always pleased by who they deliver – and how!
It has abundantly clear throughout this pandemic that expert leaders are essential. We will continue to require expert leaders as we navigate a dynamic and complex healthcare environment post- pandemic. At BJH, our goal is to attract talented leaders skilled at supporting our exceptional caregivers, leading change, supporting innovation, while making sure the unique needs of our patients, their families, and the community are met. This is an exciting time for us! And, because we are clear about where we are headed, we need partners who understand our strategic direction, will listen, consult, communicate, and be agile as we accelerate our growth and value to the community. Hireup Leadership is that partner for us.
The [Hireup] team has saved my life many times over the years when I had a critical leadership vacancy. They listened to my needs, communicated transparently, and provided fast and high-quality candidates – and they always took the time to make the right cultural fit. I have often thought about their unique and personalized recipe for success, and I think it is because of 3 main ingredients – consistency, reliability, and authenticity (with an emphasis on authenticity!). And I am sure there are several other secret ‘ingredients’. They have never disappointed me!
Lucy, Brad and team have a stellar reputation with both their clients and interim Nurse Leaders. They are truly dedicated and responsive to advancing the needs of the nursing profession. As consummate professionals, they are an extreme pleasure to work with in any setting.
I loved traveling with HireUp Leadership! I was treated like I was part of a family. I felt supported, encouraged, and valued. Kelsi followed up with me regularly to ensure that I was doing well with my assignment; she was also available to me whenever I needed her. I loved the job so much they placed me in that I went permanent at a location I never thought I would relocate to. I would absolutely recommend HireUp Leadership to be your company for interim travel, you won’t be disappointed!
I have known Lucy since my first CNO assignment in 2014. As a result of my experiences with them over the years, I have total confidence in the team at Hireup Leadership from matching my talents to potential assignments to taking care of the details so I can fully focus on meeting the needs of the organization to which I have been matched.
I like to think of HireUp Leadership as my on-the-road family. As an interim leader you give 100 plus percent of your efforts into the organization that you support. After a long day, you return to your apartment for rest, but it is not like home where family is there to re-energize you. It is a warm feeling to come home and there is a gift from HireUp Leadership awaiting you. I receive multiple communications from Connor, Anne, Chloe, and Lucy encouraging me to continue to provide a higher level of leadership. I put forth my best efforts because I know I am representing my family.
A vital part of an Interim Leaders success is working for a company that leverages your expertise and qualities then aligns them to the organization’s needs. Hireup Leadership is that company. The staff ensures both the organization, and the interim leader are partnered for success. Thank you, Hireup Leadership, for many fulfilling interim assignments.
This is my first interim assignment and Hireup has made the experience so positive! I have access to people who can help at a whim – and educational resources to keep my licenses and certifications up to date. They show me often that they care about me. I work hard at my organization to make a positive impact, so to receive calls, updates and small appreciation gifts makes a difference to me. It makes me feel truly valued and supported.
I have been traveling now for a few years working in interim leadership roles. Hire Up Leadership excels in every way! They not only ensure I am a good fit for the organization, but the organization is a good fit for me! Everything from recruitment, to the housing and travel arrangements, and follow up once you are on the assignment is outstanding. They are very appreciative of my work and keep in touch with me for any needs or concerns I may have on a regular basis. I love the Thank You cards and small tokens of appreciation I have gotten regularly from the company throughout my assignment. This company truly puts you and your needs at the forefront of the assignment, while at the same time ensuring the customer is happy with your service. I am so happy I’ve found a “home” with Hire Up Leadership!
As a veteran interim leader, and someone who travels frequently for work, HireUp leadership has been nothing but five-star. I feel like I have my own private concierge team and it’s easy to forget that they do this for many people. The communication and the follow-through is amazing. So often on the road it is easy for people to forget about an interim leader when there is so many other priorities to be attended to. That is not the case with HireUp leadership. From frequent check-ins, monthly tokens of appreciation for the work you do, to attending to all the other logistics of travel, the experience has been amazing. I look forward to my next interim leadership assignment with HireUp.
I’ve worked with HireUp for several years now – and there is no one better. I feel supported, respected, and appreciated for the work I do. Plus, I always feel well matched with the location, assignment, and organization’s culture. They pay attention to those ‘subtleties’ which makes our collective experience even more productive and meaningful!
Hireup feels like family caring for all of my needs. From finding a perfect fit, to credentialing, housing, and travel home. And I love that my favorite little life things are thoughtfully sent each month or on holidays. Like I said it’s family!
My experience with HireUp Leadership has been first-class all the way. Everyone from the recruiters, HR and payroll were so helpful and provided information requested right away. The perks along the way were so delightful and made me feel special and appreciated. I have already recommended HireUp to several of my colleagues.
Hireup Leadership is the employer that cares about you. I have worked for several interim agencies and Hireup is by far the best from onboarding to contract end. You have no logistical worries with Hireup. They not only take care of all the details, but make every process go simply and smoothly. I highly recommend Hireup if you are considering executive interim contracts.
I have found HireUp Leadership to be one of the most innovative, dependable, organized and nurturing companies I have ever worked for! The recruiters are exceptional. They care about your experiences in the companies they have placed you in. They are engaging and super supportive. The Administrative Leaders check in with you and the company you work at and give you feedback to make sure you have the tools you need to feel great about the accomplishments you have made and to keep you on track. The members of the team that arranges your travel and housing are detailed oriented, communicate well, and make sure you have what you need. The HR department is Johnny on the spot with payroll and benefits! HireUp takes it to the next level. They are not a status quo company. They want to make sure each leader has an excellent experience that is unique to that individual’s strengths! During a time in Healthcare that is filled with uncertainty and continuous challenges, the HireUp team makes you feel secure and that they have your back! Thank you HireUp for giving me the opportunity to do what I do best, have the ability to work to the top of my scope of practice and to give great care to the teams that I lead!
Working for HireUp Leadership has been a fantastic experience. From the initial contact with my recruiter, I knew this company would be a great fit for me. The staff at HireUp Leadership demonstrate that they truly care about their employees and value your contributions. I initially signed a 13-week contract that was extended for 4 additional terms. I attribute this success to my recruiter, Allie, who placed me with an organization that was a perfect match for myself and the organization. HireUp Leadership offers many perks to the employee through on-going education, benefits, 401k, very thoughtful gifts, and more. HireUp University is an additional bonus that provides continuing education credits to support ongoing learning, certification, and license renewal at no cost to you. All in all, if you are looking for a company who will offer you a career in comparison to a job, staff who are extremely supportive both personally and professionally, and see you as a name rather than a number, then HireUp Leadership is a company that I highly recommend.
I am very thankful for the opportunity that Hireup Leadership provided me. They have been a great professional organization to work with on every level.
I’ll be honest, I have floated around the interim assignment venue for well over a year, and after picking assignments and going with different travel organizations, I learned the hard way about travel contracts and engagements. HireUp Leadership has a great reputation with their clients, and the 30 day exit clause is always honored as well as the
reimbursement for travel at the conclusion of the assignment. I am so thankful HireUp Leadership found me! I love working with them, and it has been a wonderful experience ever since. They are not only professional, they are positive and energetic in relation to any placement. The team at Hireup Leadership is responsive to any needs, they truly respect and value their interim leaders. They are very savvy to place their interim leaders in the best positions and cultural fit within any organization. Their educational offerings through the HireUp University are spot on, their health insurance is very reasonable, and they give assignment gift cards as well as monthly appreciation gifts, which really make a difference in the assignment and the time you stay somewhere. Their communication while on assignment is outstanding. They are always touching base and making sure their interims are happy with their assignment as well as content with housing. Speaking of housing, I know they have my back when placing me in outstanding hotels or corporate housing. I never worry about an area’s safety and feel confident they will position me opposite the flow of traffic. If any interim leader is looking for travel, I highly recommend Hireup Leadership.
The team embodies professionalism, excellence, and compassion. I would encourage candidates and clients alike to look no further than Hireup Leadership.
As an interim leader, I love bringing critical thinking, clinical excellence, quality metrics, and teaching together. There are many new nurse leaders who want to learn and refine their skills – and develop more. Hireup provided key details on the hospital’s specific goals to me when considering my latest assignment – and because of it – I knew I was a great match for the work and the team! And I am proud to have the data and an award to show for it!
