How We Help You Recruit Better Executives

IQ PARTNERS is a targeted Executive Search firm and Recruitment agency in Toronto

We are a ‘direct-contact’ executive recruitment firm meaning we don’t just advertise your position - we proactively ’headhunt’ the superstars who will make a real difference to your team. Because the best people rarely look for their next job; they’re actively recruited. We start by using our deep executive search database and wide networks to contact and qualify 100-350 candidates for your specific search whether you’re in Toronto, Canada or worldwide. This leads to 30-50 in-depth interviews from which our headhunters identify your candidate shortlist using our SmartFactor™ assessment tools to ensure they’re the perfect fit for your organization helping you hire better, hire less and retain more.

Read What Our Clients Are Saying

I often tell people that they can do pretty much any search in the world - any function, any location - because their expertise in recruiting and their willingness to get out there and dive into unknown territory is so impressive. I'm a big fan of IQ PARTNERS... Thanks for everything!

IQ PARTNERS is the best executive search firm I’ve ever worked with!

Wendy Porter, Board Member, VersaPay

We are a high performing organization… We are a very values driven culture, and IQ PARTNERS really gets that… they come across as a solutions provider, as a problem solver, as opposed to a trader in talent or people... I believe strongly that they would make a great partner to some of our other partners, and I will continue to refer them and recommend them.
