What Makes Us Special

Where typical recruitment firms offer generalists who recruit in various positions, Eximius Personnel only works on focused searches for qualified sales and marketing professionals.

For our clients, this focus and specialization results in more searches completed promptly, paired with a higher level of success.

Our vigorous hiring process can help you find the right sales or marketing professional for your organization. We work in nearly every industry sector from financial services to technology.

Size Doesn’t Matter

Over 1,400 employers trust us to deliver excellence. Our clients range from Canada’s Top 50 Employers to small, entrepreneurial organizations that are hiring their first sales or marketing professionals. We work with large and small businesses alike.

We can act as an HR department for smaller companies, as well as work hand in hand with corporate HR departments. Big or small, we take the time to understand our clients, their needs, their business practices, and how they go to market to find the right employees.

Melanie is no stranger to networking nor will she hold back in providing constructive criticism to better the experience and desired result. I continue to lean on Melanie and the team at Eximius for career consulting and contracts and couldn't be happier with their service and results!
