“After 6 months of searching for a Senior Electrical Engineer, the contracted recruitment vendors were unable to deliver; in 3 weeks, Think Talent was able to find, screen and place a superb candidate with our Power Systems Group.”
John Perry
Senior Recruitment Consultant, Finning (Canada)
“We had been recruiting for two Instrumentation Technicians at our Manitoba facility for over eight months with no success. Pierre and his team were able to source candidates within the province as well as across Western Canada. Thanks to their efforts we were able to fill the vacancies with individuals who are valued additions to our team.”
