We act as an extension of our client’s brands and are proud to be a trusted partner to a variety of organizations, from tech start-up’s to global corporations and everything in between. Here’s what just a few of them say:

I found the Hays team in Ottawa to be very engaged. They took the time to understand my needs and truly recognized what I was looking for in a candidate. Through continuous follow up and Hays’ ability to find talented resources, my consultant delivered on a top quality candidate for my team in a very quick and urgent manner.”

“My experience with Hays has been tremendous! As a smaller and newly developed organization, Hays took the reins and supplied us with excellent candidates where we did not have the time to do so. I would recommend Hays to anyone in need of this service.”

“The level of service we received from the Hays team in Vancouver was beyond excellent! After a tireless and unsuccessful search for a candidate internally, we turned to Hays for support. My consultant found us the perfect candidate almost immediately and we ended up creating a permanent position for him as he proved indispensable to our team. Thank you.”
