Boldly Changing the Way the World Views Talent


Cielo is the world's leading strategic Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) partner.

In short, we help our long-term partners transform their talent acquisition function to hire better talent faster.

Headquartered in Brookfield, Wisconsin, near Milwaukee, our global presence includes more than 2,000 employees serving more than 143 clients across 91 countries in 33 languages. This footprint includes Moorland Gray, the largest executive search firm in the Middle East.

HOW WE STARTED We were founded as pioneers in the RPO space under the name Pinstripe in 2005. After jointly serving clients in partnership since 2009, Pinstripe (U.S.), Ochre House (UK), and TAAHEED (UAE) combined in 2013 to form Cielo.

For talent acquisition leaders seeking transformational change, Cielo is a strategic Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) partner that ensures our clients attract and hire their unfair share of exceptional talent.

Unlike RPO providers that think more like outsourcers than recruiters, we become our clients’ talent acquisition function by immersing ourselves in their industry, brand and values, and by being accountable for driving real business results. Or as we like to say, WE BECOME YOU.
