About Us

The Leading Recruiter in the Manufacturing Space

The Connell Group has been recruiting the best Manufacturing talent for more than 14 years. We excel in sourcing talent at the manufacturing plant level and serve as the "go-to" recruiting firm for many Fortune 500 companies. Corporations use us to look beyond the resume and find the DNA that matches their culture. The Connell Group can help you find the transformational A-players. We are the most networked search firm in the Manufacturing space and can find the "passive" talent that you need.

Located in Anniston, Alabama, The Connell Group was established to change the paradigm in manufacturing recruiting. Founded by Scott Connell in 2006, Scott used his own experiences at the corporate level to address the substandard level of service he personally dealt with from many search firms. By focusing on what is most essential to clients, Scott developed a firm that focused on the things that matter most: quality, speed and communication.
