Company background

Established in 2012 as Moving2Canada Recruitment, we rebranded our agency in 2016 to account for the fact that we now specialize in local recruitment in addition to our international recruitment experience.

Over the past four years our business has transitioned from not only being an experienced international recruitment business but has moved towards being a specialist local recruitment provider who have adapted to Canada’s labor markets in order to meet the needs of our clients. In 2012, we launched as an international recruitment agency (Moving2Canada Recruitment) working to help our Canadian employers source international talent.

Four years later, we have now developed a strong local network of talent, complementing our ability to recruit internationally and providing the optimal selection of qualified and highly skilled employees that your business requires. Having outgrown our initial international focus, means we now have a unique dual offering to meet the needs of employers.

Meet the Founder

Born in Ireland, Ruairi Spillane grew up in a family-run bed and breakfast near Killarney, where he was constantly interacting with guests from all over the world. Having studied a degree in Business Studies and a Master’s in Financial Services, Ruairi worked in financial services in Dublin for three years until he was recruited to work in beautiful Vancouver in 2008.

Ruairi quickly adapted to the Canadian workplace but realized that lots of newcomers struggled to differentiate themselves and communicate their value to employers. Having observed the powerful impact of international migrants within multi-cultural Canada, he set up as an information website to empower newcomers. In 2012, he established his own recruitment agency in order to meet the needs of construction and engineering employers.

Ruairi’s strong people skills, technical competence and lust for learning have helped him excel and to have set himself apart from many of the others in the recruitment industry. In his free time, Ruairi travels extensively and enjoys the great outdoors. information website
