All About Employment in Victoria, BC

Headhunters and other Recruitment Agencies

Those with jobs that they are trying to fill can consider any of the companies listed below – some specialize in different types of candidates (information technology, tradespeople). Most of these agencies offer a full service where they post the job, accept applications, shortlist and also, should you ask for it, interview the candidates and recommend the top individuals for the job. This full service approach sets them apart from the companies listed on the Job Boards for Employers page which simply accept a job posting, publicize it and direct applicants back to the company with the vacancy (or collect applications but do not evaluate them in any way).
