Aerospace and defense recruiters

Taking a direct and experience-enabled approach to talent equitization

The Challenge: Women don’t apply for jobs unless they're 100% qualified; men apply if they meet 60% of the qualifications. Further compounding the issue, is that women apply to 20% less overall job postings than men.

The Solution: It takes a different approach. At Elray Search, we engage and secure the talented women who define leadership in the A&D industry and all its specialized verticals.

We work collaboratively with our partners to build teams that manifest their missions.

Our understanding of the space and science industries allows us to successfully leverage candidates in component and airframe manufacturing, defense electronics, electronics, system integrators, geospatial intelligence, satellite communications, UAV development, signal processing, radar systems, OEMs, MRO, and other highly specialized arenas of space.
