Who We Are

About Us

Strategic Employment Partners (SEP) was founded in 2007, serving companies in the Greater Los Angeles area by providing Technology Recruiting and Placement Services. With the combined experience of our seasoned professionals, SEP quickly began to build strong partnerships and provide curated talent for some of the largest and fastest growing companies in Los Angeles. Since then, SEP has expanded its operations and currently has eight divisions nationwide.

In present day, our journey has led us to expand our services and become an even greater asset to companies by developing into a Full Service Advisory Firm. Our recruiting abilities have evolved to include specialties beyond technology, and so our clients rely on SEP to fill a variety of positions across their enterprise. This has allowed SEP to create long term partnerships, where we can act as a seamless extension of your enterprise recruitment needs. Beyond placements, SEP is fully equipped to offer companies of all sizes expert consulting services to help them elevate their organization infrastructure and leadership.

Our expansion came quickly because of the quality of services we were able to offer our customers. We believe that that is a result of the quality of our people and our culture of mentorship. We recognize that the employees of a company are its greatest asset, therefore we put our team first. If we can support and challenge them, positively engage with them, and provide them a platform to be successful—our customers will be well taken care of.
