About Us

Let’s be honest: all recruiting firms have access to similar tools and data, and follow many of the same steps to identify, engage, and screen candidates. What sets us apart isn’t the software we use or our “proprietary screening process”. Instead, it’s our depth of knowledge – both of the industries we serve (marketing agencies and technology firms) and the nuances of the marketing, PR, and creative roles we recruit for – coupled with our ability to quickly forge strong candidate and client relationships; we excel in each of these areas.

Our founder, Tim Walsh, worked in a variety of marketing and communications positions before beginning his career in recruitment. He understands what candidates look for in a role and company because he’s walked in their shoes, and can empathize with the challenges and big decisions that inevitably arise when building a career. At the same time, this first-hand experience translates to deeper insights about the specific skills and traits needed to thrive in particular marketing, PR, and creative roles. It’s a big reason why we can help you make high-quality hires more effectively. And it’s what keeps our clients coming back when they have critical marketing, PR, and creative roles to fill.

Why Choose Vetted?

Our values aren’t just website copy – they are what drive our daily behaviors and underpin every search we take on. We are committed to maintaining an inclusive culture within our own team, and strive to help our clients develop and maintain a similarly diverse and inclusive team.

We also believe in giving back to communities we serve, donating a portion of our annual profits to charities that share our values, putting our money where our mouth is when it comes to building toward a better world for all.

When it comes to your business’s bottom line, we offer a variety of pricing structures, including engaged, flat fee, and contingent pricing. And, all of our placements are backed by a 100% refund guarantee (for a hire’s first 100 days). It’s reflective of how confident we are in our candidate vetting and matching process, as well as how committed we are to forging long-term client partnerships.

Our Recruitment Services

Contingent search

When you need to fill a highly specialized, niche, or hard-to-fill role, a contingent engagement will bring you top talent in a timely fashion.

Engaged search

For hiring teams that want to stay fully involved in the process, engaged search provides white-glove service with access to real-time candidate data and on-demand status reports.

Custom, flat-fee search

This service is ideal for businesses under tight time constraints, or that need to fill multiple roles in a tight timeframe. Let us take the wheel and run your recruitment process from beginning to end in this fixed-cost model.

Meet the Team

Tim Walsh | Founder

Tim has been a recruiting leader for nearly 20 years. After making a career transition from marketing to recruiting in 2003, he began a run of eight consecutive years as the top-performing recruiter for a boutique search firm, placing top marketing, sales, product, analytics, and professional services talent with software, ecommerce, and marketing services firms.

Tim co-founded ConnectedSearch in 2012 and, after growing it from zero to $2 million in revenue, he sold his practice area to a large, national executive search firm. Following stints with two specialty search firms, he launched Vetted in August of 2020 with the vision of creating a more forward-thinking boutique recruitment firm, one that gives back in meaningful ways to the communities it serves, while providing best-in-niche talent acquisition services.

Tim lives in Arlington, MA, with his wife and two children. When he’s not attending one of his son’s baseball games, or daughter’s musical performances, he’s probably listening to alternative rock (Buffalo Tom, Jade Bird, HAIM, Pearl Jam, & Veruca Salt are among favorites) or sports talk radio, avidly following the exploits of the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and, especially, Patriots.

Megan Mooney | Managing Partner

Megan is a talent acquisition leader with robust experience crafting and implementing full-lifecycle recruitment programs for some of the top tech companies and marketing/PR agencies in the Boston area and beyond. Armed with comprehensive industry knowledge, she leverages her intuitive listening skills and advanced ability to understand complex client needs and assess candidate capabilities to make ideal candidate-employer matches.

Megan takes a human-centered, empathetic approach to recruitment and finds fulfillment in connecting people with opportunities that help them reach their full career potential. She holds a BA in International Relations from Roger Williams University and a MA in Human Rights from University College London, one of the world’s top universities. When she’s not helping her clients hire top Marketing, PR, and Creative pros, you can find her rollerblading, learning the bass guitar, and working towards her goal of visiting 100 countries by age 35.
