About Us

As one of Central Florida's largest recruiting and placement firms, Tews Company places top talent throughout the Central Florida area. Since opening our doors in 1995, we've developed a highly effective talent evaluation method to ensure both candidates and clients find the perfect match.

Tews Company has all the trappings of a national firm. Yet, we are locally-minded; our focus is primarily on Central Florida. We work hard to fill quality jobs in the Administrative, Accounting/Finance and Information Technology sectors. Our goal, as always, is to skillfully select the best employees around and then find the jobs that best suit them. The results are tremendous. In fact, the majority of the hand-picked people we place end up working for the company we selected on a long-term basis. That said, it's no surprise that we've partnered with some of the most well respected companies in the region.
