How We Help You Hire Better Marketers

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

While some recruiters simply do an electronic search for candidates, IQ PARTNERS is a direct contact headhunter with a deep database of top talent, a vast network, and relationships that go back decades (97.8% of our candidates rate our professionalism as ‘above average’). That means top performers take our calls and we bring you the people that didn't even know they were looking for a job, not just the best unemployed person on the market.

Bryan Walkey
CEO, Northern Lights Direct

Really, the best agency in Toronto. Great strategic advice and great candidates. This is a professional experience from start to finish. If you are building your business on talent, IQ Partners needs to be your first call. Seriously that is after 35 years, "saving money, because all recruiters are the same". That was the wrong approach. This is value for money, plain and simple.

Julie Puckett
Global Executive Recruiter, TripAdvisor

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!

Jane Tucker
Executive Managing Director/Partner, John St.

While it makes sense to do most of our recruiting in-house, we turn to IQ PARTNERS and Adrian Robinson for many of our senior and critical-role hires... Having built a trusting and long-term partnership with a recruiting professional like Adrian has added significant value and efficiency to this very important function for our company.

David Toto
Managing Director, Juniper Park-TBWA

Adrian Robinson and his team at IQ PARTNERS have been our long-term preferred strategic recruitment partners. Why? I love their pace, their understanding of our culture, the professionalism they demonstrate in strategically scouting, selecting, prepping talents before presenting them, and sometimes discovering the hidden gems we wouldn't even appreciate on our own. They are a true extension of our team.

Maureen Meehan
Director of Marketing, Lerners LLP

I want to take a few minutes to say thank you for all your support during my search. You are first class in your profession and IQ PARTNERS are a highly professional organization and I have nothing but high praise for the experience and service I have received.
Let's stay in touch, I might need your help with my team in London!

IQ PARTNERS has consistently sourced + secured some of our strongest team members. They take the time to understand the nuances of our agency, collaborate in clearly articulating our needs beyond the original job description, and thoroughly vet/identify exceptional candidates. There have been many instances where I’ve been left in the enviable position of having to make a difficult selection out of multiple compelling and qualified candidates. I have nothing but trust in the team at IQ PARTNERS, and would confidently recommend them to any professional organization looking to build-out and amplify their talent.

Peter Shier
President, Naked Creative

I've worked with Bruce and his team at IQ for many, many years. Their counsel and advice on all matters of HR and general business has been exceptional. I rely on them for honest, forthright points of view and as well they've helped us search out terrific people who truly fit our unique and differentiated agency. Culture is one of our strengths and IQ has helped us strengthen that culture over the years. Would recommend them without reservation.
