How will your recruitment agency add value to my company’s hiring process?

Partnering with IQ PARTNERS can save you a great deal of time, money, and resources you’d otherwise be spending on the hiring process.

How does your recruitment agency find talent?

We are a direct-contact recruitment agency, meaning we don’t just advertise your position. We proactively recruit the superstars who will make a real difference to your team. Our headhunters know the best people rarely look for their next job; they’re actively recruited. That means we deliver not just the best people on the market but the best people in the market.

Once we’ve identified a shortlist of potential candidates, IQ PARTNERS utilizes a proprietary candidate assessment tool called smartFACTOR™ that gets past a candidate’s effort to sell themselves and scores them 3 critical attributes critical to success in today’s workplace.

Does your agency provide temporary and permanent placements?

Yes, our recruitment agency provides both temporary and permanent placement services.

How can your recruitment agency help me attract a diverse workforce

As a recruitment agency that helps other companies hire better, it is our responsibility to cultivate diversity, equity, and inclusion within our own organization, and to help our clients build diverse and inclusive teams. To ensure that our recruitment efforts reflect the best DEI practices, EVERY employee of IQ PARTNERS has completed at least 10 hours of DEI Training.

Can your recruitment agency help with my hiring needs across Canada, or help me hire from outside Canada?

Yes, while our recruitment agency is based in Toronto we are constantly recruiting people for positions across Canada and internationally. In the last six months we’ve recruited for positions in everywhere from the Okanagan to Halifax and from the U.S. to Europe. And, our deep networks in 17 specialties ranging from Accounting to Tech, means we know where to find the top talent no matter where they’re located across Canada or beyond our borders.

What is a headhunter?
