Executed their functions perfectly

“Primex Technologies has worked with Corporate Recruiters on several important recruitment campaigns over the past 5 years, most recently, for a Director of Engineering role. During these projects we had the privilege to work closely with three of their recruitment staff, Kim Brooks, Colin Farrell and Amanda Du Toit. Each of them brought their own style and skills and all of them executed their functions perfectly, bringing in the best candidates for us to select from. Of particular note, these actions included: personal visits to our facility to truly understand our needs and the culture of the company; weekly or bi-monthly updates depending on our wishes; and a truly open mind to allow us to pursue our own due diligence with the candidates that included our personal assessment program that more importantly did not render skepticism or even questioning. We appreciated that they respected our internal processes and allowed the process to take place. The fact is, we at Primex do some of our own recruitment when the position suits that process. However, when we are looking at higher level, challenging recruitment campaigns, we turn to Corporate Recruiters to support us on these initiatives and they deliver.”

They “get it”

“They “get it”. I was attracted to Corporate Recruiters by their continued support of the local technology community. In the 3 occasions that I had a need for their services, I found Amanda, Kim and Colin to be very effective through their thorough search process and professional and respectful customer service.”

They're in it for the long haul

“If you're hiring in the tech sector in Vancouver, you should work with Corporate Recruiters. Their knowledge and network within the industry are second to none. Their recruiters are professional, discrete, and adaptable. They work hard to learn about your business in order to bring you the best candidates. And, most importantly, they're in it for the long haul. We've developed a long term trusting relationship with them that has served both as a source of talent and a tremendous source of solid business advice.”

Brian Clare

A strong funnel of candidates

“I have worked with Kim and Amanda from Corporate Recruiters on a critical and urgent role we needed to fill. Kim and Amanda responded quickly and efficiently by building a strong funnel of candidates, narrowing it down and finalizing the process with our candidate of choice. We have completed the cycle in under 2 months from start to a signed contract. Kim and Amanda were professional and very pleasant to work with.”

Unlike any other search I have done in the past

“Working with Colin and Kim at Corporate Recruiters has been unlike any other search I have done in the past. Their methodical approach, and the appropriate level of engagement of all the stakeholders, produced results fairly quickly, and delivered an executive that is a great fit and a huge asset to GuardRFID. The collaboration tool that was used during the search made it easy to observe progress on a daily basis, and gave my Board and I the means to communicate our individual and collective opinions in real-time. It also helped us focus on attributes that would be a good fit for the company, rather than who had the most experience or knowledge. I highly recommend the Corporate Recruiters team to anyone searching for an executive level candidate.“

Outstanding assistance

“Amanda Du Toit provided outstanding assistance to our team on a recent search engagement. After working with several members of the Corporate Recruiters team over the years, I am always positively impressed by their focus, market knowledge, reliability, and responsiveness. Amanda and her team of seasoned professionals know how to carefully assess client requirements and then execute a well-designed search process in a thorough manner. I am also confident that they treat candidates with respect during the search process, which is an important reflection of our values as an employer and another important consideration when engaging Corporate Recruiters to represent your company in the competitive marketplace for talent.“

Nothing but great things to say

“My personal thanks to you and your team for managing the recruitment process so professionally. Tim and Kim were great to deal with and every one of my references that had contact with them had nothing but great things to say about them.”

Did exactly what you said you would do

“It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with you on an important senior position here at Function Point. You did exactly what you said you would do and accomplished it somewhat quicker than I had imagined. Most importantly, I believe we would not have found a person of the calibre you have brought us. Thank you for your professional assistance.”

A really great experience

“Thank you for the great work that you and your team did. Professional, as ever. Although I expected nothing different, after having been on the other side of the Corporate Recruiters recruiting process.

It was a really great experience working with you and your team. And I’m really excited about our new hire and I’m absolutely convinced that we’ve got the right person here. This is going to be a keystone to us growing, and going forward.”

The process was thorough

“I am very happy with the search we did with CRL. They have a good network and were able to show us a cross-section of candidates from both sides of the border, both Canadians and Americans. The process was thorough and resulted in a good hire, right on the timeline as estimated. We are very lucky to have hired our CEO through them.”

Collaborative team approach

“I was clearly impressed with the search. The collaborative team approach to this process was fantastic. Kim and Tim were always 24/7 available and responsive. In addition, at the end of the day, I think your team demonstrated good old fashion hard work sourcing. This is what produces results. Kim and Tim demonstrated a level of tenacity and hard work that I have not seen in other recruiters. Thanks again, and I would be happy to serve as a reference, as I would hire you again.”

Highly qualified candidate

“I appreciate the time and effort that Council has taken to successfully recruit a President for the Premier’s Technology Council (“PTC”) . . .

I understand that the recruitment process was undertaken as a pro bono contract, at no cost to the PTC, and was performed by your firm, Corporate Recruiters Ltd.

I wish to thank you, Tim Swanson and Kimberley Brooks, for your efforts in recruiting a highly qualified candidate for this role.”

My expectations were exceeded

“It was a real pleasure to work with Corporate Recruiters. Their professional staff understood our needs (which were not easy and simple to fulfill), and found excellent candidates who were not only a good fit for the job description, but also a perfect fit for our company. Amanda did a great job finding the jewels for me & keeping me up-to-date with the search process. My expectations were exceeded, and I’m sure I’ll use their services again in the future.”
