Atlanta, GA – April 27, 2018 – Lucas Group, the leading Houston staffing agency, announced the promotion of Lindsey Webb to Contract Practice Manager of its Information Technology (IT) contract recruiting branch in Houston, Texas.
“The IT talent marketplace is going through a major transition period with companies increasingly opting for innovative contract staffing models that benefit all stakeholders,” says Steven Robinson. “As a result, Lucas Group’s Contract IT division is growing rapidly– and Lindsey Webb is uniquely qualified to oversee its growth. Her strong background in sales and recruiting along with her exceptional customer service skills are a winning combination that delivers superior results for companies and contractors.”
IT unemployment rates are at historic lows across the United States, including in Houston. Companies that partner with Lucas Group’s Contract IT placement services are able to shrink recruitment and onboarding timelines from months to days. Houston companies are able to immediately staff up for short-term projects that require specialized skill sets, such as cybersecurity, without the risk of a bad hire.
“Contract talent solves urgent staffing needs while providing sought-after flexibility for both companies and candidates,” says Lindsey Webb. “Companies gain access to high-level skills that are otherwise unavailable. IT professionals can choose short-term projects that ensure their skills stay fresh without getting bogged down on legacy equipment and systems.”
Prior to joining Lucas Group, Lindsey managed the Consultant Division of a leading financial services recruiting firm in New York City. Lindsey, who was quickly promoted to Vice President, managed the firm’s Consultant Placement Division and served as a mentor to junior recruiters.
A native Texan, Lindsey is a trained opera singer and holds a Bachelor’s of Music in Vocal Performance from Abilene Christian University.
