How We Help Our Healthcare & Higher Education Clients

  • My continued goal is to staff healthcare & higher education teams successfully by recruiting and screening the best healthcare & higher education candidates keeping in mind a strong culture, personality and skill-set match. Achievements happen by understanding my healthcare & higher education client’s and candidate’s needs–honing in on both parties “must-haves”. That equals continued and profitable results all around.
  • Who has time to screen unqualified healthcare & higher education candidates that come in from job boards or apply directly to your website? You don’t for sure! Do your job and I will do mine. I work best working directly with healthcare & higher education hiring managers or healthcare & higher education internal recruiters who “get it” and know their culture, company and team. Where are the pain-points? What works for you and your team?
  • Stop trying to pretend you can do it all yourself and engage with us to find out what makes Lynne Francey and Associates, LLC the perfect companion for your next healthcare or higher education hire.

Reginald L. Moore, Sr., President and CEO, Education Management, Inc

As a President & CEO of Education Management, Inc., I have used Lynne Francey & Associates LLC exclusively to fill a variety of management-level positions. Lynne has the skill set to understand the varying needs of a smaller, high-growth organization, as well as a large, established company. Additionally, she has the high caliber of talent within her database to fill positions at both types of companies. “I have found Lynne Francey to be a top-notch recruiter, providing responsive and professional services, as well as very well-screen candidates. Lynne truly takes the time to get to understand the requirements of any of the various positions I’ve used her to fill. She doesn’t take a cookie-cutter approach to the job descriptions of her client base. “I have and continue to find Lynne Francey & Associates LLC a consummate group of professionals to work with and would strongly recommend them to any organization looking to fill positions with high-caliber talent.

Stacy Sweeney, Former Group Vice President, Art Institutes

For well over a decade I have utilized the services of Lynne Francey Associates when in need of qualified senior leaders in for-profit Higher Education, especially admissions leaders. Lynne has consistently supplied quality candidates responding to organizational needs. Her commitment to service to ensure a successful match for the organization and the candidate lend a higher level of credibility to her candidates knowing they have been qualified by an expert in the industry. I would recommend Lynne Francey & Associates LLC as a valuable human resource to any Higher Education Institution searching for quality senior leaders.

Joanna Shaginaw, Director of Admissions, Everest Institute, Grand Rapids

I worked with Lynne Francey when I had decided to get back into higher education after a brief hiatus. Lynne was very thorough in understanding my needs for a new position in the industry and understands the Ins and Outs of the interviewing process when I had questions. Lynne helped me through the interview process step by step and thoughtfully gathered personal recommendations to forward on to my interviewers. Lynne had 100{bc017fa2ba67950c773699b4aed4460b38728a4f6cead947c7d76319c2c74870} confidence in me and my abilities and was able to communicate that to my new employers.

Jim Coakley, President, Nashville Auto-Diesel College

For 23 years I denied any inquiries from recruiting professionals. I decided to spend a few minutes asking questions of Lynne and found a position that answered all of my desires. The support was unwavering and the followup was stellar. I often wonder where I would be today if Lynne and her group had contacted me years ago.

Mike Iannacone, CEO/President, Star Career Academy

When it comes to filling an employers’ recruiting needs, I would place Lynne Francey and her team of associates as #1 in the industry. They are without a doubt the “best in the business” and know the industry inside and out. Within a short period of time after our initial contact with them, we receive 1 – 3 resumes of pre-screened candidates that we would hire. They save us the unnecessary time of reviewing countless resumes and allows us to do what we do best. They are dedicated, trustworthy and highly responsive to our recruiting needs and target highly qualified candidates who have proven to be stellar employees. What I like best about working with Lynne and her team is they have a pipeline to candidates that are a step above any in the industry! I have been amazed at who they know and are able to present to us for immediate hire. Their track record for giving us employees who stay the course and deliver results is unparalleled!
