Canadian oil and natural gas company

I have worked with recruiters from most of the top firms and in my opinion, our Caldwell Partners team was one of the best. He is a true partner and trusted advisor to us and it is obvious that he always wants the best outcome for our company vs. just making a placement. He has taken the time to learn the nuances of our culture as well as anybody. He is highly responsive. He manages an extremely tight process and every detail is important to him. He is extremely passionate about his work and it is obvious to all who work with him. He finds the best candidates for us because he puts in the work up front to understand the context, position and culture.

Prominent Canadian bank

I have worked in the past with many different search firms, recruiters, and headhunters, and the Caldwell Partners team was, far and away, the most professional and effective of any I have ever met. They not only listened carefully to what we were looking for, they understood it in a nuanced way. That is a very hard thing to teach and some/many will never get it.

Online shopping service

The Caldwell Partners team was great to deal with. They were knowledgeable about the company and all the folks I was scheduled to meet. They always made time for me and made sure all my questions prior to the meeting were addressed. They came across more as a partner during the process as opposed to others in the profession. What was always helpful was how my contact was open to discussing how it may be or not be a good fit with his client since I always consider these exercises as a two-way process.
