Who is Recruit Rooster?

We’re a new team of creatives, recruiters, and marketers from DirectEmployers, the pioneer in federal contractor compliance and recruitment marketing.


The noble rooster isn’t just any bird; it’s a working bird, an early bird, the bird that runs the coop and rules the roost. Plus, we just love the way “Recruit Rooster” rolls off the tongue—and off the beak.


Recruit Rooster is a wholly owned subsidiary of DirectEmployers. And like DirectEmployers, we can help you find the minority, military, and other specialized candidates you need to reach your hiring goals, or diversify your workplace. But when you work with our team, you get a whole new suite of services.


We’ll help you develop the web presence you need to appeal to the people you’re trying to reach. That means building a better careers page with IT-free deployment, fast turnaround times, and smarter analytics to improve your website’s performance. It also means providing you with custom creative services like great content, attractive video, and original photography that showcases your business at its best to attract the right candidates.
