Optimum Talent enables our clients to achieve success through people. We collaborate with leading organizations to recruit, develop, engage, retain, and transition talent. The result for our clients is a stronger employer brand, and a workforce with the capability and insight to execute their strategy and achieve their business goals.
Our extensive recruitment experience originates from Conroy Ross Partners, who we have a long history of successful partnerships with, and whom we ultimately acquired in 2016. Founded in 1994, Conroy Ross Partners delivered retained search services to clients across Canada, successfully placing over 3,500 candidates and earning a reputation as one of Canada’s leading recruiters.
We offer a full complement of recruiting solutions to find the talent you need for your organization. We recruit executives and professionals, for both permanent and contract positions. Our clients are comprised of publicly traded and privately held companies and represent various industries including, academia, construction, finance, government, health and social institutions, industry associations, not-for-profit, oil & gas, and power generation.
We are a collaborative firm. Every client is a client of our firm and all assignments receive the benefit of the collective experience and resources from all our colleagues.
With origins dating back over 40 years, Optimum Talent has grown to over 260 employees operating in 14 offices from coast to coast. We provide expertise in Executive Search and Recruitment Solutions, Leadership Assessment and Development, and Career Transition and Outplacement.
At Optimum Talent, we like to think that we’re pretty good people. We have stories about how we’ve demonstrated our integrity, professionalism, honesty, and a lot of the values that other organizations talk about. But when it comes right down to it, what differentiates us is how we engage with our colleagues, clients, candidates, and communities. So, we landed on that single core value: Engage. It’s not the word itself that is most important, but rather the descriptor that we put around it: We engage with our colleagues, clients, candidates, and communities to create a lasting and positive impact.
