I met with Ruairi for a coffee when I arrived in Vancouver. His well-rounded knowledge of the hiring process in Canada and his eagerness to develop a suitable approach to sell my skills and experience to potential employers were key in aiding me to find employment as an Australian Expatriate. Ruairi put me in contact with a number of key personnel within various engineering firms and helped me to develop a plan to utilise my job searching time in the most efficient and effective way for the Canadian market. With time on my side and no ties to Vancouver, I opted for a role in Edmonton where I could accelerate my career. His strong communication skills and willingness to help me succeed in a new environment were pivotal in my job search success.
I contacted Ruairi after when work dried up with my previous employer. Ruairi dedicated lots of time to helping me present my skills and experience in the best possible way. It was refreshing to see a recruiter spend so much time understanding my work experience and improving my resume. Despite it being a tough market in Alberta, I ended up finding a Superintendent role with one of Canada’s leading general contractors. Ruairi’s attention to detail and energy for assisting my job search was extremely impressive.
Finding challenging work in my field became difficult once the recession hit Ireland. After I decided on moving to Canada, I contacted Outpost Recruitment to kick-start my job hunt. Ruairi assisted me in transforming my resume and introduced me to three employers that were a fit for my experience. I trusted him to manage to my international job search, and he exceeded all expectations.
With three young kids, the decision to emigrate from Ireland for a second time was not an easy one. Ruairi encouraged me to apply for permanent residency early in the planning process, which was really helpful. His knowledge of locations across Western Canada was superb and, most importantly, he managed to find me a senior project management role where I can grow my career in Alberta.
Once I met Ruairi from Outpost Recruitment at an employment fair, his proactive approach immediately impressed.

Soon after, I met with Ruairi at an employment fair and within a month I had a great job offer in Canada. Having a job in place before I moved was invaluable, and their guidance and communication was superb.
