Local Business Experience
Headquartered in downtown Vancouver, we’ve been active in Canadian construction markets since 2012. We’re actively engaged with clients and candidates across Canada. We understand each location we recruit for, whether it’s urban or remote projects across Western Canada. From Alberta’s oil sands to Regina or Northern BC, we understand that every market is different, and not every market suits every recruit. We work with you to find the right employee to get the job done. We keep our fingers on the pulse of your industry with regular trips for client engagements, site visits, and trade shows.
Global reach, local presence
We have also developed a strong global network in order to scale quickly to meet your resource needs. We have a proven record in providing strong international candidates who are keen to move to Canada to progress their career.
We continue to enhance our selection of local candidates by identifying, filtering, and selecting the best talent that is planning a move to Canada. Powered by the Moving2Canada network, an information website that has registers over five million visits annually, we scan global markets for you.
Through this website, we have tracked incoming talent since 2011. We allow our clients to tap into our massive network of newcomers and permanent residents that are here in Canada. These candidates have typically gained valuable local experience, but slip under the radar of local agencies.
When we source internationally, we select candidates that are native English speakers who have gained experience on western construction methodologies. We have expert knowledge on immigration issues and logistics around international relocation. We source candidates through our website, a strong social media presence, international recruitment fairs, and referrals.
Since 2012, Outpost Recruitment has been creating extensive connections in the Canadian construction industry. We strive to build long-lasting connections with top talent so they will come to us when they are ready for a change.
We have worked with tier-one contractors, EPC/EPCM, engineering consultancies, and subcontractors across various disciplines to enhance our understanding of the industry. We conduct site visits across Canada to help us understand the markets we recruit into.
