Your One-Stop-Shop for Recruitment Services: STRIVE Recruitment

If your business is looking for a professional recruiting firm to staff your organization with proven and experienced people, STRIVE Recruitment can help. Starting at the height of the global recession in Vancouver in 2008, STRIVE saw quick success standing on the pillars of culture and experience. Today, 15 years later, STRIVE remains a premium recruitment firm with a near-perfect Google review score among hundreds of happy clients. But what makes STRIVE stand out from the rest?

The STRIVE Difference

STRIVE has been successful in the recruiting world thanks to its exceptional search system and full-service recruitment approach, catering to anyone from small family businesses to Fortune 500 firms.

Having a team of recruiters that each bring their own area of expertise to the table has helped them grow from a firm that started as an accounting and finance specialty recruiting outfit, to one that finds high-quality candidates for manufacturing & operations, corporate administration, and a range of other roles. And with so many years in the industry combined with AI-powered Talent Intelligence platforms, the recruitment engine is top-tier.

The S3 STRIVE Search System is a unique recruitment approach that provides a comprehensive range of recruitment services broken down into 8 stages. It starts with a dedicated account manager, leveraging AI and recruiter assessments to gather candidates for interviews. The options are then presented to the client and we then work with you to organize face-to-face meetings, close on your ideal candidate, and follow up post-placement.

Here are some of the recruitment services we offer:

Permanent Recruitment

on the phone with computer

Permanent recruitment services are designed to help businesses fill positions for the long term. Finding the right person can be time-consuming and costly, so in the majority of cases, you’re likely looking for a candidate who will stick around.

At STRIVE, we take pride in delivering these candidates promptly and efficiently, with a track record of filling positions in 3 –10 days for intermediate roles and 20 days for senior positions. Plus, our full-service recruitment services mean you’ll hardly have to lift a finger – freeing up your time and saving you money. When working with clients on permanent recruitment, STRIVE manages that entire process from start to finish – everything from candidate screening to offer negotiations.

Executive Recruitment

working on documents and computer

Executive recruitment is all about finding those highly skilled, highly qualified candidates to take the helm in executive roles that are ever-so difficult to find. The good news is our recruitment specialists are well-positioned with a knowledgeable network of contacts that help them find those high-calibre individuals.

When you work with a STRIVE dedicated executive recruitment specialist to fill your next senior position, you’re getting recruiters with a proven track record of success. Plus, we offer market-leading guarantees of at least 3 months, giving you some peace of mind in your investment.

Contract & Temporary Recruitment

Whether you’re looking for a temporary staff for one day, a holiday cover, a contract worker or a temporary-to-permanent solution, this type of recruitment requires a special kind of approach and expertise. This type of staffing requires timely, reliable service and strong results.

At STRIVE, our temporary recruitment services can be tailored to the unique needs of your industry. Not only that, these temporary hires should be able to be thrown into your organization and integrate seamlessly. When hiring for the short-term, there’s no time to waste.

Payroll Services

Dealing with payroll on your own can be a time-consuming task. In reality, your time is probably best spent elsewhere. That’s why STRIVE offers complete payroll services that can help scale your business as needed without having to add people or administrative overhead.

At STRIVE we provide complete payroll services to businesses of all sizes, which includes everything from payroll processing, tax filing and time and attendance tracking. You can rest assured knowing your payroll is being handled efficiently, accurately, and in full compliance, so you can keep your time and spend it moving your business forward.

Best Practices to Avoid Recruitment Fraud

REVISED: May 15, 2024

Recruitment Fraud Notice 

We have become aware of multiple reports of individuals claiming to represent our company, and we want to ensure that our clients and candidates are well-informed on how to identify and respond to any incidents that may compromise their safety or privacy. By making you aware of this, we hope to avoid and ultimately stop victims from falling for this fraudulent activity.

*We will never request a fee or payment from candidates. Please do not provide any personal or financial information to anyone you suspect of recruitment fraud. 

How to Identify Recruitment Fraud:

  • You receive a message on WhatsApp or another online messaging platform.
  • You are asked to provide a fee or payment (we will NEVER request payment from candidates).
  • Our email communication will only ever come from a domain. We will never contact you through Gmail, Outlook or any other free online mail service.
  • The job is not posted on our official Jobs page on the STRIVE website:
  • Always research the company before applying for a job. Check its website and search for reviews (ex. Google, Glassdoor, Indeed).
  • Cross reference the recruiter’s name and contact information with the employees on our official website under the Meet Our Team page. If you are still unsure you can reach out to that employee directly through the contact information in their bio.
  • We do not offer or promote freelancing roles or “side jobs”.

Fraudulent Message Examples:

For Canadians who are a victim of recruitment fraud:

  1. Reach out to your bank or financial institution for assistance.
  2. Report it to your local police.
  3. Report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC), even if you haven’t suffered any financial loss. Your report will aid law enforcement in investigating cybercrime.
