I have had the pleasure of working with Chalker Group as a recruit and a recruiter. We had concerns about Birmingham but Chalker showed us the true side of this wonderful city. We were ready to move to UAB after spending time with them. As the chair of the UAB Department of Surgery, we have numerous recruiting opportunities, and we have successfully landed our top recruits due to Chalker’s help.

Having moved professionally multiple times, I have come to accept that job relocation is an uncertain time. The curated Chalker experience exposed me to Birmingham and expertly showcased how the city matched my unique interests and needs. Great stewardship!

While we knew UAB was the perfect career opportunity for my husband, we were unsure about the opportunity for the rest of our family. Chalker Group stepped in and connected us to the resources we needed to make the move to Birmingham successful, including a new career for me, housing, childcare, schools…you name it.
