We want you to find the best fit

We’ve been around the block: NW Staffing Resources is a privately owned and operated Temporary, Temporary-to-Hire and Direct Placement Staffing Services organization founded in 1985. Our original vision of being the Northwest’s leading provider of staffing services remains the same today. Since 1985, we have grown from a single Portland office to a regional West Coast company with multiple offices located across Oregon, Washington, and California.

In 2021 our branch offices partnered with 392 companies and placed 2,169 candidates in Direct Hire, Temporary-to-Hire and Temporary Placement positions.

We have two sets of customers and believe both are equally important: our temporary employees and our clients. We strive to ensure that everyone who does business with us walks away feeling like we want to help them succeed.

We genuinely care. We are nice people doing nice things.
