The Story

Founded in 2011, the first members of MAGNUS Personnel crammed into a 90 sq. foot office above a movie theatre. These humble beginnings quickly gained the attention of many of the world’s most intelligent businesses. How? We found that if we under-promised, over-delivered and provided highly responsive service, faster and more accurately than our seasoned competitors, we received many calls and even more referrals.

We’re honored to have the privilege to serve global Business leaders and ambitious professionals. Because we’re grateful, we work harder, we care that you continue to be impressed and we’re not afraid to share our secrets of success. We call it our abundance mentality and it’s helped grow our firm more than 150% per year for the last 6 years. Now with more than 150 global clients and offices across Canada and the United States, one thing remains the same... We Care.

Hiring Success


We used our first few years of growth to shape our Mission, then we surveyed North American business leaders to ensure we had it right! These are the foremost principles that guide our uncompromising work ethic:


Under-Promise & Over-Deliver. We are 100% responsible for the success of your search.


Know where we are in the recruitment process at all times through honest and frequent communication.


Every single search is URGENT. That’s why you come to us. We work best under tight timelines.

Together Is Faster

Who fulfills your placement is far less critical than how it's done. We care more that your search gets filled with the right candidate and that it gets done faster than you expected. By pooling our resources, we win more than 40% of our search assignments. This is close to double the industry standard.

Good Listeners Are More Accurate

As an extension of your brand, we need to hear, see, and feel your business. Our in-person “Discovery Process” is a critical step in our ongoing success together. We see thousands of ‘A’ Player candidates every year, and now we can tell them all firsthand what makes your company so great.

Provide Quality Over Quantity

Are you tired of interviewing candidates who clearly aren’t right for the job? We won’t waste your time with irrelevant submissions. We prefer to send you two or three remarkable candidates. You’ll be wishing you could hire them all!

Fully Integrate Work & Life

We don’t stop thinking about work at 5 pm. We see tremendous value in being highly responsive and accessible when our clients need us. That doesn’t mean we don’t take time away from work, we simply blend the two. We are Head Hunters, it’s not just our job… it’s who we are.

Core Values

A Culture of Contribution

Seek First To Understand

We asked over 100 HR Business Partners what they appreciate MOST about Head Hunters. Your feedback helped forge our Core Values; the foremost principles that guide our daily business conduct.

We do this with Vigor & Passion. We are Relentless. We are MAGNUS.

Making You Stronger

Get Noticed!

How do you get the attention of a company that you want to break into? Don’t worry, we’re probably working with them and can leverage our industry experience to “shop” you. With your permission, we’ll engage the decision-makers on your behalf.


Today, companies are looking for Achievements and Accomplishments far ahead of Responsibilities and Duties. What your potential employer wants to know is…What is it that sets you apart from every other candidate applying for the same role? We can address this by helping you create an Accomplishment-Based Resume.


Quantifiable numbers are the best way to exemplify your successes. Providing your numeric pole position will help further substantiate your abilities and potential to excel in a new role.


If your resume is too long, clients will glaze over it. For Individual Contributors your resume should be a maximum of 2 pages; Managers 3 pages and; Executives 4 pages. We need to make your accomplishments explode off the page and stand out. Keep it short, keep it precise, keep it numerical. This way you can’t lose.

Seek First To Understand

We want to hear about what motivates you, who you work well with and how you like to work.

We do this with Vigor & Passion. We are Relentless. We are MAGNUS.
