Pam Egan | Controller

“I found the online candidate screening process to be a very effective tool as we were successful in recruiting 2 candidates within a month of posting the positions. The support team was extremely helpful in posting the job and ensuring that the screening questions targeted the right candidate pool.”

Carola Cunningham | CEO

I appreciate the time and commitment made to keep me on track and up to date on the status of our file. Kerri was relentless (in a kind way) to make sure all the t’s were crossed and I’s were dotted. My position is incredibly demanding and I was short staffed. Kerri understood my dilemma and the demands I was facing and made the process seamless and user friendly. I appreciated the help and the scoring system to short list candidates.

Brock Roadhouse | Manager of Human Resources

Scout Talent helped us get better candidates than we had previously and they significantly reduced the amount of work we had to do as part of the hiring process. We get better results with less effort. We’ll definitely use Scout Talent again.

Jonica Hofer | Human Resource Generalist

Megan was incredibly knowledgeable and intuitive as to what my needs were for placing my job ad in select locations across Canada, and was quick to offer suggestions. She asked all the right questions; and some difficult questions as well, to determine the best angle to target the audience that would be the best fit for not only the job we were recruiting for; but the location the job took place as well. I was supported throughout the campaign and prompted when to make my moves on the suitable applicants. Scout Talent is a user-friendly platform and offers many features in one location. I am satisfied with my decision to use Scout Talent, and have had Megan’s support for my campaign, and for all our applicant tracking.

“I was very satisfied with the management of our advertising campaign this time. I was somewhat anxious when you handed the responsibility of the file over to someone else but the transition was seamless and I received everything that I might need to proceed with an LMIA if it had been required.”

Fernando De Melo | Principal Consultant

“Recruiting for a small business is costly and time-consuming. I was reluctant at first to use the service because of the poor experience I had with other recruiters. The team at Scout Talent has been great. In the last 12 months, they helped us gain clarity on our hiring practices, re-design our hiring processes and helped us to keep up with our growth. I’m happy with the value we get from our partnership with Scout Talent.”

Scout Talent helped us fill a position that had been vacant for quite some time. We were happy with the number of qualified candidates the experts at Scout were able to generate for us. The process is very smooth and their platform is user-friendly.

Adrianna Bakker | Human Resources Business Partner

“We had some of the best candidates come through our campaign with Scout Talent. The level of quality you get with them is truly invaluable. Our candidates were continuously looked after, and when it came to choosing which candidates to bring in to meet, it was so easy to narrow down the best by viewing their video interviews. I highly recommend Scout Talent as they met our needs for our Technical Support roles, without the hefty contingency fees of a traditional recruitment agency. Fraser and Mark are a pleasure to work with and really understand the kind of candidates we were looking for!”

Marie Hunt | Health Director

“My experience with Scout Talent was very good. We received numerous applications for our job listings. The short-listing and pre-interviews were very helpful in terms of relieving me of my workload.

I was pleased with how fast the Scout Talent had our job posting up and running so we could start seeing resumes. I liked the log in portal that allowed me to rate candidates and view their information. I liked the idea of being able to pin down candidates based on the criteria we had set forth and the ranking system allowed me to pin down the candidates better. We are extremely happy with the candidate we chose for the role and was able to get him via our relationship with the Scout Talent.”

Lenetta Parry | Executive Director
