Shelley has been incredibly warm to work with. She is courteous and humble. She connected with me on linkedin and understood my profile and found a job for me which aligned to my skills, experience and education. She has great work ethic and is very responsive and welcoming to any queries and concerns.
Colin was the primary supplier of contract resources during my time as Program Executive for a large multi-year program at a major Canadian bank. Colin distinguished himself from other suppliers early on as someone that consistently provided candidates that met our requirements. We would often add certain very specific specializations to the basic job description and he would almost always find the background we were looking for. Colin also demonstrates a high level of commitment to customer service. Any issues that may have arisen with a resource were dealt with immediately and professionally.
I began working with Colin almost 10 years ago when he placed me on a very large Program at one of the major banks. During my two years on that assignment I watched as Colin built the rest of the Program team in the Program Manager, Project Manager, Project Coordinator and Business Analysis categories. Colin is very good at not only understanding the business and technical requirements of a resourcing need but also identifying people who have the right interpersonal skills and levels of seniority to address the specific needs. Colin was often recognized by clients and consultants on our Program for the quality of his work and his commitment to great customer service.
I first met Shelley as a candidate and the experience was fantastic. 15 years later I can still remember how warm and thoughtful Shelley was compared with other recruiters I’d been speaking with. Shelley put the effort into really learning about me, who I was and where I’d be successful. She was spot on. I’ve worked with Shelley on the employer side ever since, and that thoughtfulness shows through with everyone she’s placed for me. I can count on Shelley to present qualified candidates, who match the workstyle of whichever team or environment we’re hiring for. Shelley’s a wonderful partner. She loves what she does, and she does it incredibly well. She works with speed and urgency, and yet manages to make interactions feel pleasant and unrushed. As a candidate and as an employer, you are important to Shelley, and you can feel it. I’m always excited to partner with her.
Colin got me my very first contract Project Management role many years ago. At the time I was unfamiliar with the contract market so Colin met with me personally and helped with come up with a strategy to demonstrate my skillset to the market including help with my resume. In my dealings with Colin over these many years I've always felt that he was more interested in me as a person than simply how I could help him meet his bottom line. This personal touch has left him with a very dedicated client and candidate network in the Project Management market.
Colin is a very knowledgeable, responsible and kind person. I’ve known Colin since 2019. We met on LinkedIn and after that we had several face-to-face meetings. He helped me to find a contract role as a Data Analyst with one of the top 5 banks. Colin understands business needs and knows the recruitment industry inside out. He is eager to help people with their next career move. It was my pleasure to work with Colin and I would love to work with him in the future for my next contract opportunity.
I’ve dealt with Colin for almost 20 years now. Before presenting me with any role, he takes the time to find out the details of the role, and how I would play a part in the overall project as well as within the organization. He makes sure that there is a good fit and synergies between the role and my expertise. There even have been times when, my resume may not have been a good fit at face value, however Colin would go the extra mile to present me as a quick learner with similar qualities and traits the company is looking for. It shows that he has a very good repour with clients. My success rate working with Colin over the years, makes him one of the first recruiters I go to when I am looking for a new role.
I have known Colin for over 10 years and have worked with him as a candidate and supplier of contingent workers. Colin introduced me to my current company and was there to help me navigate the relationships he had established when I joined. Colin builds excellent relationships with everyone he meets. He takes the time to understand the true requirements, including the working environment and the area the candidate will be supporting. I know I can rely on Colin to fulfil my requirements because of his years of experience, relationship-building skills and knowledge of the financial industry.
I've worked with Colin for many years, initially in my role as an SVP of an international bank where he provided me with capital markets experts for various roles on large international technology projects. Colin was a top vendor due to his deep understanding of capital markets which allowed him to find just the right experience we needed. Later in my career, as I transitioned to consulting Colin was invaluable in advising me on my transformation from fulltime employment to independent consulting.
I worked with Shelley when looking for my first job in Canada. It was a pleasure working with her. She understood my background and my requirements in detail and then connected me to a company that was looking to hire for a profile that well suited my qualifications. Shelley kept me informed at all stages of the hiring process. She is highly professional, transparent and very approachable, which makes working with her a really pleasant experience.
I've known Colin for over 10 years in which time he has represented me on more than one occasion as a Senior Business Analyst in the financial industry. Colin's deep knowledge of FI lines of business and the technology that support them leads to strong outcomes for both candidates and clients. I've also appreciated Colin's ongoing concern with my contract experience through the entirety of my assignments. He doesn't just place someone and forget them.
I have known Colin for over ten years and have worked with him several times in various situations. Most significantly, Colin was a major supplier of contract resources for a $65M Wealth Management initiative that I was Program Managing at a leading Canadian bank. Colin always presents candidates that reflect the requirements of the specific needs requested. I have also had the opportunity to work with Colin when seeking new contract roles.
Colin has been a primary supplier or resources to all of my Programs for over 15 years. He has worked with me on both Capital Markets and retail banking programs, providing resources across all job categories including Project & Program Management, Project Coordination and all categories of Business & Systems Analysis. Of note was a Program in recent years that required resources who could work seamlessly as our organization transitioned from a traditional waterfall approach to Agile. As usual, Colin found us just the right people.
Shelley is friendly, articulate, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. She is extremely helpful and found me a perfect role that I love with an amazing company. She assisted me through the entire process and kept me updated and in the loop even with small details. Without doubt, the most experienced and knowledgeable recruiter I have met so far in my industry. She is quite detailed oriented person which I like the most. I would always recommend Shelley to anyone in need of a new role who wants to find a suitable alternative for career movement quickly without any unnecessary hassle. All the best Shelley. Thank you for all the support and good luck.
