Client Testimonials

“I have worked with Kim and Amanda from Corporate Recruiters on a critical and urgent role we needed to fill. Kim and Amanda responded quickly and efficiently by building a strong funnel of candidates, narrowing it down and finalizing the process with our candidate of choice. We have completed the cycle in under 2 months from start to a signed contract. Kim and Amanda were professional and very pleasant to work with.”

“Working with Colin and Kim at Corporate Recruiters has been unlike any other search I have done in the past. Their methodical approach, and the appropriate level of engagement of all the stakeholders, produced results fairly quickly, and delivered an executive that is a great fit and a huge asset to GuardRFID. The collaboration tool that was used during the search made it easy to observe progress on a daily basis, and gave my Board and I the means to communicate our individual and collective opinions in real-time. It also helped us focus on attributes that would be a good fit for the company, rather than who had the most experience or knowledge. I highly recommend the Corporate Recruiters team to anyone searching for an executive level candidate.

“Amanda Du Toit provided outstanding assistance to our team on a recent search engagement. After working with several members of the Corporate Recruiters team over the years, I am always positively impressed by their focus, market knowledge, reliability, and responsiveness. Amanda and her team of seasoned professionals know how to carefully assess client requirements and then execute a well-designed search process in a thorough manner. I am also confident that they treat candidates with respect during the search process, which is an important reflection of our values as an employer and another important consideration when engaging Corporate Recruiters to represent your company in the competitive marketplace for talent.

‘I am very happy with the search we did with CRL. They have a good network and were able to show us a cross-section of candidates from both sides of the border, both Canadians and Americans. The process was thorough and resulted in a good hire, right on the timeline as estimated. We are very lucky to have hired our CEO through them.’

“I was clearly impressed with the search. The collaborative team approach to this process was fantastic. Kim and Tim were always 24/7 available and responsive. In addition, at the end of the day, I think your team demonstrated good old fashion hard work sourcing. This is what produces results. Kim and Tim demonstrated a level of tenacity and hard work that I have not seen in other recruiters. Thanks again, and I would be happy to serve as a reference, as I would hire you again.”

Their professional staff understood our needs (which were not easy and simple to fulfill), and found excellent candidates who were not only a good fit for the job description, but also a perfect fit for our company.

Candidate Testimonials

“I’d like to thank the staff at Corporate Recruiters, particularly Tim Swanson and Kim Brooks, very much for all the help you provided me throughout the CEO BCIC process. Your professional and very helpful manner made what could have been a nerve wracking experience into a pleasant one. It makes such a difference to work with professionals. Once again, I very much appreciated your assistance at all points in the process.”

Greg Caws
President and CEO
BCIC (BC Innovation Council)

“I have enjoyed a ten-year relationship with Corporate Recruiters. Our partnership has been beneficial on many fronts, even though it was not until this year that Bruce Edmond found the correct skill set, and vertical market match and placed me happily in my current Executive role. The team at Corporate Recruiters are incredibly knowledgeable, professional and their integrity is second to none. My relationship with them will continue for many years, and I would recommend anyone who is looking for professional employment in the lower mainland, start their own relationship with them today.”

Dennis Asbury

“Corporate Recruiters are specialists in the technology market. Their ability to link my requirements as a candidate to my current opportunity has far exceeded my expectations. My placement here 5 years ago has led to one of the strongest steps in my career to date. I would recommend them for both candidates and recruiting companies alike.”

Brent Harvey,
Senior Manager, Enterprise Sales

“I have been impressed with the professionalism and industry knowledge of the Corporate staff. What impressed me the most was their understanding of my value proposition as a candidate. So when Tim called about this opening, I found it was a great match for my interests and strengths. Thanks Tim!”
