Our Process

To Start
First and foremost, we need to gain an understanding of the role and your organization. We will work with you to develop an overview of the position and to assess the qualifications, as well as the “soft” skills that are required for the role. We can help you develop the job responsibilities and requirements for the role and provide current market salary data that reflects a wide range of qualifications. We will review our process with you and establish a timeline that suits your needs.

The Search
Using all of our resources, we identify top candidates for your position. Recruitment Consultants have administered relevant skills testing with all registered candidates, as well as performed thorough interviews to gain an understanding of their professional experience, accomplishments, strengths and weaknesses, and educational background. We also discuss their goals, ambitions, and motivations, so that we can present to you the candidates whom we feel are best suited for your position. Since we meet with people on an ongoing basis, we quickly identify ideal candidates from our established database in addition to new applicants.

The Presentation
Next we present you with a short-list of top candidates. We will brief you on each candidate, reviewing such areas as skill competencies and experience, software knowledge, salary expectations, as well as the reason the candidate is interested in the role. At your convenience, we will arrange for you and others involved in the selection process to interview the desired candidates.

Ensuring success
Once you’ve made your selection, we take care of the remaining details. Criminal background checks are completed for all candidates receiving an offer—temporary or permanent. As well, we notify all unsuccessful candidates of the outcome. For permanent roles, we can assist you with drafting the terms of employment and finalizing the job offer. We will act as intermediary, negotiating on your behalf if required. For contract positions, the candidate is on our payroll and we manage all necessary documentation including payroll, employee remittances and contract termination procedures at the end of the work period. Also, we will touch base with you and the contractor periodically throughout the contract.
