I've gotten some in-house gigs through some of the generic creative recruiting groups (TCG, Creative Circle). Sure, they take a chunk of your pay, and most of the companies aren't sexy, but the money's green and it beats not working.

I feel like headhunters filling in house depts are the moneymaker jobs of the next five years.

But no I dont know where to find one.

Depends on the industry. In tech yes, with certain big companies yes (I was hired by a recruiter for a big retail brand years ago for example), but because client-side is technically like, the whole working world, there isn’t one person or company to answer your question with. It depends.
