The IQ PARTNERS Advantage

5 Reasons to Hire IQ PARTNERS

We Hunt

We don’t just scour social media. Our network and credibility brings you the best people in the market not just the best people on the market.

Candidate Credibility

20 years in the world of logistics, transportation and manufacturing means top candidates take our calls. 97.1% of candidates and clients rate our industry knowledge as ‘Above Average’ or ‘Outstanding’.

The Knowledge to Find the Right Person

Hiring good technical people means finding people with specific skill sets and backgrounds. Someone who specializes in medical device QA is unlikely to succeed in the same role for a candy maker. We have the industry experience to know exactly who you’re looking for.


Our clients also have access to our recruitment teams with different disciplines like marketing and sales and enjoy the benefits of ‘one-stop-shopping’ while working with a recruitment partner who they already know and trust.

Client Satisfaction

81% of our clients are repeat customers.

How We Help You Hire Better, Hire Less & Retain More

We deliver not just the best people on the market but the best people in the market.

Good operations people are hard to reach because they’re busy putting out fires and less likely to use social media.

That’s why you need recruiters who concentrate exclusively on hiring operations, supply chain experts, distribution leaders and others in similar mid-level and executive operational roles.

Award-winning industrial recruiters like Kelly Noelle have spent 15 years in construction boots and a safety vest walking the concrete floor in transportation, logistics and operations roles before turning to recruiting for the last seven. Her industry knowledge and deep network means she knows where the top talent’s hiding. Her credibility means the best people take her calls. And her intimate knowledge of the operations side means she knows how to get them truly excited about the role you’re offering.

Angela Fair, Senior Vice President, Redflex Group

Kelly is the best of the best. Her tenacious drive and determination is why I have asked Kelly to assist us in finding our "A" players all over North America on numerous occasions. She is focused, inventive and she doesn't know how to fail. Kelly has been and will continue to be my go to when we need talent.

, Global Business Expert

I recently hired Kelly Noelle to recruit for a highly sensitive and niche position within our organization. Not only did Kelly present top level candidates that fit our requirements, but she did so much faster and with greater success than the other recruiting firms we have worked with before. Kelly consulted with me through each step of the recruiting process and assisted us in making the best final decision for our company. I would highly recommend her and most certainly will use her again.

, President & CEO

Kelly did a great job in finding suitable candidates for a very difficult to fill position. Thank you for your hard work.
