(1999) Darcia Bower, after catching the entrepreneurial bug and needing to make a difference in the industry, struck out on her own and started Expert Recruiters in March of 1999.
(1999-2001) The first 4 employees followed with Linsey Ross month one, and Candace Braun Amirault soon after at # 4. For the first 3 years, we enjoyed an incubator style environment with offices at Guinness Business Centre, and quickly grew to a staff of 5 and launched UpTempo!, our temporary staffing division. More importantly, we cultivated a client and candidate list of many top Vancouver companies.
(2002) In 2002, we made the prudent decision to purchase our space and moved to a commercial townhouse to truly realize the boutique personal environment that is Expert Recruiters. Always one to take things to the highest level, Expert Recruiters has allowed us to raise service standards and pursue innovations. Our clients include leading Healthcare organizations, Not for Profits, Law firms, Public Companies and Construction Companies.
(2007) In 2007, Expert Recruiters, seized the opportunity to purchase, Geri Ramsay and Associates, a leading Accounting Staffing Agency, developed a Legal Recruitment Service, and then grew to an internal roster of 15 dedicated internal team members.
(2007,2008, 2009) Expert hosted exclusive client movie nights and raised money for the Vancouver Food Bank while showing appreciation to our candidates and clients. Expert Recruiters embraced the technological advancements, implemented an advanced ATS, launched a new website and continued to grow their client base.
(2009) Expert experienced the market downturn and reduced their staff to six. Luckily, all of our exceptional team members have continued to thrive and make an impact elsewhere.
(2010) Expert Recruiters was proud to have a corporate suite at Molson Canadian Hockey House during the Games. For 17 days in February, we played host to over 150 of our valued clients and were proud to be a part of that shared community experience.
(2011 – 2015) Expert continued to support our community and raise money with Food Bank Drives, SPCA Paws for a cause and our own Tea in support of Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
(2016) Expert Recruiters expands our Accounting and Financial Division and adds Expert Accounting Temps to further assist our clients with a vetted, experienced and available workforce.
We have also added a consultant specializing in Sales and Marketing roles, and are very excited about what the future holds.
