A National Leader in Senior Living Recruiting

We have traditionally focused on a select group of senior housing and long-term care clients who provide desirable corporate environments and career opportunities for our candidates. One of our most active areas of specialization, we have experience with both for-profit and not-for-profit senior housing portfolios. With national experience, we have successfully recruited top executives and managers across the U.S. in all areas of specialization including:

  • Single and Multi-Site
  • Corporate Management
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Operations
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Dining and Hospitality
  • Clinical Management
  • Quality Assurance
  • Human Resources

At Jeff Harris and Associates, we believe in the power of partnerships. Our emphasis on integrity, results, and mutual respect has resulted in a top-tier talent network unavailable through traditional recruiting firms. The fact that 94% of our current searches are conducted for repeat clients serves as a testament to our proven success. Our company was built with the objective of creating a recruiting and consulting firm that marries the professional, consultative environment of retained search firms with the flexibility of a contingency search option.

Jeff Harris Senior Recruiting


After investing extensive time and resources to understand your hiring needs, we handle the entire search and vetting process from creating all underlying materials, developing a comprehensive strategy, placing ads, sourcing passive candidates through direct targeted efforts, and qualifying candidates through an extensive interview and assessment process.


Priority searches are recommended when clients desire their recruiter to invest dedicated time and resources to conduct a thorough, strategic candidate search. Clients have the option of utilizing online candidate screening tools, including DISC temperament Profiles, Wonderlic intelligence assessments, and online pre-recorded interview technology for finalist candidates.


Basic contingency search is an option recommended when the employer will assume responsibility for a majority of the screening and vetting process, and when an employer anticipates interviewing candidates from multiple sources and/or when the hiring needs are less urgent. In such searches, it is expected that the recruiter will assess candidates from our database and conduct a cursory evaluation of local candidates.
