Specialized in Your Specific Needs

Recruiters who are 100% focused on 17 different sectors including key Ottawa growth sectors like tech, healthcare & life sciences, legal and accounting.

Recruiting in or to Ottawa

Having recruited in Ottawa for over 30 years, we know that candidates in Ottawa are great networkers and that the network is not all downtown. In fact, there are deep candidate markets in the Greater Ottawa Region at events like TechTuesday at The Marshes in Kanata. Going beyond Ottawa to recruit in Gatineau is a great way to source the bilingual candidates that our clients often need.

Recruiting people to Ottawa is becoming more important as the region’s growth surpasses its limited candidate pool. Our experience as headhunters for Ottawa has taught us that people from there like to find their way back. Whether it’s the lower cost of living and stable economy, the recreational opportunities, or simply family ties, reaching out to those born & raised there via our deep candidate networks across Canada has been key to our success in the region.
