Meet Our Team: Jeff Moore

Jeff Moore, Executive Recruiter

HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU WORKED AT GILMAN PARTNERS?

Six years.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT WORKING AT GILMAN PARTNERS?

I love the variety. We get to know so many different people, industries, processes, and markets. I also love the opportunity we have to be creative because we aren’t afraid to try new things!

IN WHICH AREAS OF RECRUITING DO YOU SPECIALIZE?

Construction, Accounting, Real Estate, Consulting, and Manufacturing

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES FACING INDUSTRIES/POSITIONS FOR WHICH YOU MOST OFTEN RECRUIT?

In construction, talent is tight. Because the construction industry is booming right now, employers are doing more and more to retain their talent. People are not on the market for very long and sometimes it all just comes down to timing.

IF YOU COULD GIVE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE TO COMPANIES LOOKING TO HIRE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

If it comes down to culture versus skills, hire for culture. Skills can always be taught.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?

I have a few - spending time with my family, golfing, hiking, working out, martial arts, and fantasy football… plus, enjoying the occasional bourbon!

WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO CINCINNATI AND WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT LIVING HERE?

I’m originally from Indiana (Go Hoosiers!!) but when I was a kid, my dad would take my brother and me down to Cincinnati to watch The Big Red Machine in Riverfront Stadium. I relocated here in 2000 when I worked with Deloitte as a campus recruiter. My favorite part about living here is the small town feel with the big city amenities, the great restaurants, and the cultural diversity. Plus, there are some really great golf courses in and around Cincinnati.
