Vancouver Recruiters and Executive Search

We are experts at Recruiting in Vancouver

Your Vancouver recruitment agency

Our Vancouver team is committed to providing our clients and candidates with exceptional recruitment and headhunting services. We are experienced and well-connected in industries central to the economy of the Greater Vancouver area and British Columbia, from agriculture to technology and manufacturing.

The economy in Vancouver is arguably the most vibrant in Canada. Long a hub of transportation and logistics, in recent years the city’s shift from resource-based to knowledge-based industries has spurred a wave of new growth. As an experienced recruitment agency with a track record of success, Summit Search Group has the resources, connections, and knowledge to find the best talent in a vibrant market like Vancouver.

We employ targeted headhunting search strategies to identify and present highly-skilled candidates that hiring managers won’t find on a job board. Our range of services includes Professional Recruitment, Executive Search for key leadership roles, and Project Recruitment for companies who are in the process of expansion, relocation, or new product launches. Our range of tailored recruiting approaches identifies top candidates that fit your needs, so you can fill critical roles with confidence.

Finding qualified people isn't always the biggest challenge. Finding quality people has proven to be. Summit Search Group possess, what I believe, the highest level of skill in identifying and matching quality people with companies. That's a special skill that offers huge value in the long run. If you haven't connected with this firm already, it's absolutely worth the call.

The team at Summit Search Group have been absolutely wonderful and professional to deal with since we launched our company. The guidance, network and vast experience Summit has in presenting qualified candidates has been instrumental in making the process seamless and has allowed us to do what we do best and trust Summit Search Group to do what is best for us as an organization.

As a hiring manager I have used Summit Search Group on numerous occasions, and all with excellent results. First of all, they get to know the hiring person very well which helps them find the ideal candidate for the position. It also helps with getting a great fit for the team and somebody who will do an excellent job. I pushed them hard for candidates that had shown previous success in their past endeavours. They came through with flying colors and that is why I can highly recommend Summit as a partner in helping add to your team.

Summit Search Group is a first class recruitment firm where they put the time and effort in to make sure there's a perfect fit between the employers and their candidates.

Great service from beginning to end. Summit played a huge role in helping us place many successful candidates throughout the last few years. Very thorough in screening and ensuring there were no surprises at the end of the process. Highly recommend them!

I've worked with Summit both as a job hunter and as an employer and I can say that they are very professional and they do a great job of finding and screening qualified candidates for you. High recommended.

I have used multiple recruitment services across the country and would recommend them as being my best experience. Other firms have not provided me such a high level of personal and professional service. Extra time and effort is offered by all their staff to fully understand your needs and present top tier, quality candidates. Always ensuring a great fit for both candidate and company.
