A committed team of career recruitment experts who together comprise Western Canada’s largest specialized supply chain and financial recruitment and search firm.
Long-time friends Jeremy Tiffin and Feras Elkhalil agree to go into business together and launch WPCG Finance and Professional Recruitment. The first year was filled with excitement and a commitment to growth was established. Our values became clear and we worked incredibly hard to make our first year a success. The next couple years were all focused on creating new clients and establishing a strong entry in the market. Our initial focus was entirely on the accounting and finance market, however we filled a few roles outside of our specialization in order to keep the lights on!
The company was on its feet with solid market presence and adding new clients at a rapid pace. Strong internal hires enabled us to establish a rich culture of performance and solidify our business philosophy. A commitment to redefining the experience for everyone involved in the recruitment process was established. The company achieved significant revenue growth coupled with a large addition of interim placements which set the company up to weather difficult market conditions during the 2008 financial crisis.
The accounting and finance business was doing well and in 2009, WPCG Finance and Professional Recruitment Inc. launched the supply chain practice creating two unique divisions of the company. Five specialized practice groups within each division were also created in alignment with our specialized approach. This enabled WPCG to capture additional market share and beat many of the generalist competitors in the markets.
WPCG Finance and Professional Recruitment Inc. was rebranded to Horizon Recruitment Inc. to create a strong identity and career path for its internal team while also solidifying it’s unique position in Western Canada. Horizon was winning contracts with some of Western Canada’s largest and fastest growing companies and becoming a clear leader in both supply chain recruitment and financial recruitment.
Horizon Recruitment experiences huge change with a brand new office in the heart of downtown Vancouver and sees a drastic upswing in its revenues and interim consulting business with large gains made in both supply chain and financial recruitment. Horizon nearly doubles its consultant headcount and starts plans to expand into Alberta and Eastern Canada. Horizon launches the Career Café, it’s video focused blog, to help put supply chain and finance professionals in control of their careers and help hiring managers make better hiring decisions.
Horizon Recruitment celebrates a decade of growth and success in the Canadian recruitment market. Horizon also enjoys it’s strongest year to date with record revenue performances in both the supply chain division and finance division. Horizon launches an all new website and continues to create original content for clients and candidates. Horizon redoubles it’s focus on redefining the recruitment experience and invests in additional training resources for internal staff to continue their learning and develop their capabilities.
