Professional Recruiting Team

Reliable Recruitment Service and Adaptive Talent Solutions

Hiring successful placements requires time and energy, an extensive talent pool, proven recruitment methods, and an effective talent acquisition strategy. Partnering with a trusted recruiting team and staffing company can make the hiring process a lot easier, it will save you time and give you more options of skilled individuals with expertise that fits with your requirements. The recruiting team at Wesrec provide a friendly experience, timely feedback with a quick turnaround time from start to finish through the entire recruitment process. 

The first step in our process is for a recruitment consultant to meet with you to gain key insights into your business, team, vision, culture, job specifics and hiring process. After this we create a job description and candidate briefing, as well as work with you to customize the way we present candidates to you, highlighting key experiences and skills to save you time. We also conduct job-relevant market research, as well as perform a benchmarking exercise to set baseline for what a perfect candidate would look like. 

As soon as we have our ducks in a row, we dive into the search and selection phase, where our recruiting team leave no stone unturned in locating perfect candidates (or as near-perfect candidates as we can find). As soon as our recruiting team has identified several skilled individuals with expertise to get the job done, we support your assessment process by coordinating interviews, providing timely feedback, job market updates, due diligence, and negotiation support.

Finally, we offer a Comprehensive Placement Guarantee option for companies on successful placements. We know that the costs of a bad hire are astronomically high, and we find that our clients appreciate the fact that we're always willing to go the extra mile to help. Our recruiting team maintains regular contact throughout the guarantee as part of our aftercare process to ensure that everything goes smoothly and according to plan.

Canadian businesses are finding more and more, that simply posting a job description to job boards is not attracting enough talented individuals with expertise in select areas.

Some people in the recruitment industry will tell you that perfect candidates don't exist - well, that doesn't stop us from looking for them, does it?! We leave no stone unturned in finding the right option for companies to hire.

The candidate selection methodology that we use to ensure successful placements is to select talented individuals that align with culture and values. Potential candidates would be skilled individuals that understand the key responsibilities and accountabilities of the job, individuals with expertise to perform the job, and that genuinely want the job considering the cultural fit and logistical components such as salary and work structure.
