Welcome to Direct Start! Our goal is to help people improve their quality of life, by introducing them to a career that allows them to grow on a professional and personal level. We also strive to give back to our community and do our part to help make Wisconsin an even better place to live and do business. “Passion is something you can bring to work with you.” Direct Start is a staffing firm with a focus on permanent placements. In addition to permanent placements, we also have the capacity and resources to place “contract” positions. Direct Start specializes in placing technical, skilled trade and professional positions in service, manufacturing, and consulting industries. We take pride in developing relationships that lead to long-term partnerships. Direct Start takes the time in the beginning of our business relationships to get to know the candidates we work with. This takes the “guess work” out of finding the right company and position for you the first time.
