Recruiter in Residence
Designed to help growth stage tech companies source and recruit passive talent on a global scale.
Recruiter in Residence is a tactical program designed to provide growth stage BC Tech member companies, with coaching, mentoring, and best practices to source, identify and successfully hire globally located passive talent. The program is facilitated by Recruiters with over 10 years of tech industry experience. A passive candidate is someone who is being considered for a position but is not actively searching for a job. Finding passive talent requires a dedicated and customized approach which can be quite difficult and time-consuming for smaller, growth stage organizations with limited to no employment brand.
BC Tech has partnered with Creative Technology Resources to deliver coaching, mentorship, and best practices for the program. With over 10 years of recruiting experience each, Nathalie and David will be able to guide and answer all of your questions on how to grow and scale your team.
How it works
Priority will be given to BC Tech member companies between 10-100 employees, though non-member companies can apply for support and our Member Experience team will be in touch. Companies will have two options on how they can engage with the program:
OPTION 1: A free 60-minute, 1:1 consultation with a Recruiter. Examples of topics are listed under ‘What you get’ and available time slots are listed below.
Available Time Slots:
- March TBD
OPTION 2: A free 2-hour best practices, hands-on workshop. There is an upcoming session on Tuesday, March 13th from 3pm – 5pm on Employer Branding. More dates coming soon.
Apply for the engagement that most interests you via the application below. Your first engagement is complimentary once we confirm availability and the approval of your application.
If you have a more complex recruiting challenge, you can engage a Recruiter via BC Tech’s preferred partner rate for further training or customized recruitment needs.
What you get
The Recruiter in Residence program gives you the same advantage as hiring a Senior Recruiter with 10+ years of specialized tech industry experience to help grow and scale your business. It’s a customized “coach approach” where you’ll be mentored for the duration of the engagement adding strategic and tactical skills, and the tools of the trade to source, identify and successfully recruit passive talent.
If the talent is outside of Canada, BC Tech is also a recognized Immigration Referral Partner and can expedite the process of getting key identified talent into BC.
