Why Kaye/Bassman

At Kaye/Bassman International, we have been successfully helping organizations discover and hire top talent for well over thirty years and have grown to become one of the largest and most successful search firms in America.


If you have the drive and determination to build your own practice within our stable and secure organization, have high expectations for your professional ambitions, and desire to be in control of your lifestyle, work and life balance, and income, we invite you to consider the possibility of joining Kaye/Bassman International.

At Kaye/Bassman, we have not only the preeminent training program in the industry, but a multi-faceted infrastructure complete with an unparalleled operations and finance team, state-of-the-art technology, creative and innovative marketing, and a culture that has earned us the recognition of being named the #1 “Best Place to Work” on five separate occasions by the Dallas Business Journal, and Texas Monthly Magazine awarded us “The Best Company to Work for in Texas” for four consecutive years.


Each year our associates have the opportunity to earn company-paid trips by simply meeting their commitments. We’ve traveled to Europe, Mexico, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and everywhere in between. Our Kaye/Bassman Foundation has raised over $1.5 million for our deserving charities since inception. Our culture is rich with opportunities for contribution and fulfillment and charitable involvement. We have over 27,000 square feet of class A office space by the Shops at Legacy with all the things you would want at your home away from home. We celebrate our successes every quarter with awards celebrations for our extended families.


Kaye/Bassman is currently looking to add both tenured Search Consultants and entry-level recruiters to our team. We have the most tenured professionals with the best practical business experience of most any search firm. We are a complete meritocracy in that opportunities for advancement and firm ownership are open to everyone but guaranteed to no one. Our career progression is 100% transparent and 100% dictated by your results. Your income and growth are only limited by your own capabilities and desires.


A recruiting career offers unlimited growth potential.

Kaye/Bassman allows you to build a business that leverages your professional experience thus far. We encourage you to leverage your experience as well – as it offers a tremendous competitive advantage over other recruiters in your space. The executive leadership team of Kaye/Bassman has studied thousands of search firm models and we will advise you on the right function, industry, location and level in which you may choose to specialize.


Kaye/Bassman also provides complete control of your work/life balance. Once you have a track record of success, your office hours are when you choose to be open, and your vacation schedule is determined only by you. The flexibility you will experience is unparalleled by most other professions in existence.

Ultimately, Kaye/Bassman allows you to be in business for yourself, but not by yourself. We will be by your side ensuring that the infrastructure of your business is well-equipped, we will be by your side teaching you the entirety of the search process, and we will be by your side long after your potential success. Our scale of included support services encompasses the totality of not only what you should need to get up and running, but also to create a long and tenured legacy in the search business and within the history books of Kaye/Bassman.

Kaye/Bassman has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the community. What began in 2001, as a small grassroots movement of volunteers who saw needs in the community and decided to make a positive impact, is today the Kaye/Bassman Charitable Fund, a not-for-profit organization, whose mission is:

“To create and perpetuate an environment of charitable giving, foster hope and personal growth, support medical research, and enhance the lives of people in need.”

We continue today with the help of our generous sponsors, friends and colleagues to make a difference.  Our primary beneficiaries are the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Baylor Cancer Center; since inception, the Foundation has donated over $1,900,000 to our deserving charities.

We invite each of you to join us by being a guest at one of our exciting events, helping us get the word out, making a monetary contribution, donating a product or service for our auction, becoming a sponsor, or all of the above!  Please visit our Kaye/Bassman Charitable Fund Site to learn more about our beneficiaries, our sponsors, and our events – it’s the most fun you’ll ever have while supporting two great charities and truly “making a difference”.
