    We are looking for the next amazing 'Swimmer' to join our tight-knit IT Recruitment team. First we’d like you to learn about us and what makes us special:

    Our leadership & management style: 

    We believe that everyone is unique and that everyone has their own style when it comes to being a successful recruitment consultant. We do not believe in placing unrealistic and over-bearing KPIs on the day-to-day running of your desk; instead, we trust in your ability and give you the tools, space, and resources for you to do your job effectively and efficiently.

    Our reputation: 

    As a result of the way that we believe in doing business in an ethical and transparent way, we have experienced tremendous success in attracting some of the strongest candidates and developed solid relationships with some of the best and most respected employers in Vancouver.

    Our office:

    Our office is conveniently located in the Waterfront Station. We have amazing views of the North Shore mountains and our open concept office has a modern and welcoming feel. Our fridge is stocked and we often have delicious treats to get you past the 3pm 'hump' ;)

    Our IT Recruitment team: 

    Key cultural pillars of the IT team are Accountability, Performance, Creativity, Commitment, and Fun. You will be surrounded by some of the best and most experienced tech recruiters in Vancouver under the leadership of well-networked and knowledgeable Vancouver recruitment veterans. We are a fun bunch of people who share a competitive edge, respect for each other, passion for recruitment, and love of chocolate snacks. We love to win as a team (and celebrate winning!) and we are diverse with over 50% female and only 20% Canadian natives. We are proud of our inclusive culture and are active participants and supporters of many socially responsible initiatives.

    The Job:

    You will be recruiting any role that falls under the broad spectrum of Information Technology - from level 1 helpdesk analysts to CTO and everything in between. We typically have over 50 open requisitions open and any one time which are split roughly 50/50 between contract and permanent roles. We run a daily ‘scrum’ style meeting where you will have freedom to choose which jobs you want to recruit on a daily basis.

    You:

    You have an entrepreneurial mindset, take initiative, are results-oriented, have a strong sense of urgency and value ethics. You are naturally competitive and hate losing. You bring over 2 years of technical recruitment experience and love working in this space.

    Compensation:

    We offer 2 commission models: Salary of between $40,000 and $60,000 (depending on experience) plus 8% commission on all generated revenue. We also offer a commission 'draw model' with a 50% commission. For example, if you are the recruiter for a $20k placement fee you will receive $5,000 in commission payout. Both models offer full benefits, MSP coverage, RRSP contributions, 23 vacation days (plus your birthday and time off over Christmas).

    How to Apply: 

    This is a great opportunity to escape from the shackles of over-bearing micromanagement and be given the freedom to do what you do best in your own style with an awesome bunch of people and a truly inclusive culture.

Swim Recruiters made placements with over 120 companies last year- companies that are publicly listed, private, public sector, and NPO, organizations in a wide variety of industries, small companies and huge companies.

    At Swim, we believe that each person has their own style when it comes to being a successful Recruitment Consultant. We do not believe in placing unrealistic and over-bearing KPIs on the day-to-day running of your desk; instead, we trust your ability and give you the tools, space, and resources to do your job effectively and efficiently. We don’t micromanage… instead, we support you and let you get on with it. As a result of the way we believe in doing business, we have experienced tremendous success in attracting the strongest candidates and developing solid relationships with some of the most respected employers in Vancouver. 

    You will be surrounded by some of the best and most experienced recruiters in Vancouver under the leadership of well-networked and knowledgeable Vancouver recruitment veterans. We are a fun bunch of people who like to work hard but also believe playing hard to be just as important. This relaxed and down-to-earth attitude has been key to our success with both candidates and clients alike. It has also translated to very low attrition- the only 2 people on Swim’s A&F team to have left for another recruitment agency in the last 6 years returned to Swim and the average tenure at Swim on the current A&F team of 11 people is just shy of 4 years!
    If you feel restricted by the strict KPIs placed on you by your current agency/company, want room to show your creative side, and prefer treating people like people, not numbers – SWIM IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!

    What- the Role: 
    Recruitment Consultant, working alongside 10 others on the successful Accounting & Finance, Administration, and Human Resources recruitment team. We work on entry-level roles right on up to executive-level roles, and short-term temp, long-term contract, and permanent positions. Swim’s most pressing need is for an experienced Recruiter who specializes in junior-to-intermediate level accounting & finance and admin recruitment; however, we are also likely going to hire a Recruiter who concentrates on senior searches and/or a hybrid Recruiter/Account Manager. Although we already have great candidate and client networks, there are still plenty of people and companies in this city and beyond that we could be working with! The sky is the limit for a driven recruiter.

    Who- the Candidate: 
    We are seeking an experienced, talented, and self-motivated recruiter to join our close-knit and friendly Accounting & Finance recruitment team in Vancouver on a permanent full-time basis. You have an entrepreneurial mindset, take initiative, are results-oriented, have a strong sense of urgency, and a strong ethic. In addition, you have at least 2 years relevant work experience in Recruitment (agency or in-house).  Prior experience recruiting in Accounting & Finance and other corporate areas such as Administration and Human Resources is strongly preferred. Previous work experience or education in accounting is a valuable asset- we have 3 designated accountants on our team.

    Where: Downtown Vancouver in a beautiful office with ocean and mountain views. Close to both Gastown and the financial district of Downtown, and accessible via many bus lines, Canada Line, SkyTrain, West Coast Express, and SeaBus.

    Why: We are less than 2 months into 2018 and WE'VE NEVER BEEN BUSIER so we need to grow our awesome team to keep up with the amazing demand that we've created in the local A&F industry. We guarantee your days will be full and busy, with no shortage of searches to work on!  

    How Much: Swim Recruiting provides an excellent benefits package (coverage for health, dental, & paramedical, plus MSP) as well as generous paid-time-off and other perks such as frequent social events and an annual vacation for top billers. Most Recruitment Consultants at Swim are 100% commission-based (with access to a monthly draw) as this is the way to earn the most based on strong performance. We can discuss different compensation & commission structures with potential candidates.

    When & How to Apply: If this role sounds like you, please don’t hesitate to apply. Please hit “APPLY NOW” and send us your resume in WORD format.  Swim Recruiting will of course respect candidate confidentiality.
