Select and hire the most highly-skilled technical talent from around the world through Canada’s new Global
We have an existing pool of highly experienced tech workers in the US that are looking for opportunities in Canada due to the political uncertainty down south. We have also built a pool of international candidates with 5+ years’ experience working for North American companies who operate with an outsourcing model.
We thoroughly vet our candidates with technical and English language screening and create detailed profiles to simplify your recruitment process. We have partnered with Filtered.ai that allows you to create custom coding interviews and utilize candidate video explanations. We have also partnered with Plum.io to help assess soft skills earlier on in the recruitment process.
We give you an opportunity to ‘try-before-you-hire’ the candidates through a 2-3 month contracting period and offer a low monthly rate once the candidate is hired fulltime. We coordinate the payment of the contracting fees during the trial period. We do not disengage once the placement is made and offer full support to the candidate and company to ensure a successful relocation and integration.
We eliminate the challenges of working through the application process by communicating with and submitting all relevant documentation to the government on your behalf. We work with an immigration lawyer at Norton Rose and Fullbright to ensure we’re not missing any other opportunities or channels (outside of the Global Skills Strategy) to bring in foreign talent.
We meet with you or schedule a call to discuss your senior technical hiring needs and your recruitment
challenges. At this stage, we will explore ways in which we can streamline your technical recruitment
process and create a sustainable hiring model.
Our ‘try-before-you-hire’ pool are those working outside of North America with 5+ years’ experience,
qualified technical skills, and strong English communication. Our ‘proven pool’ are H-1B Visa
holders in the US or international candidates with 5+ years working for North American tech
We send you our shortlist of candidates which includes technical, personality, and English language
metrics. We set up the interviews of the selected candidates. For the ‘try-before-you-hire
pool, we fly the candidates to Canada for a month to meet your team.
We cover the cost of the visa and work permit processing and manage the relationship with the
government, bringing you in only as needed throughout the process. The work permit turnaround
time is typically 2-3 weeks.
"Yousuf and the Global Skills Hub team were able to gather our hiring needs quickly and turn that
around into a clear role description. Our team is a tight knit group of deeply committed engineers,
so our threshold for experience and talent was equally high. Somehow, the Global Skills Hub team
was able to find, evaluate and introduce Abdullah within one week. After a couple calls, code review
and discussion to ensure we were aligned, we were thrilled to bring Abdullah on for the trial work
period. Since then, our experience working with him has been exceptional, and our confidence in
his abilities to enhance our capabilities has only grown. We’re excited for his arrival to Canada
in the coming weeks and look forward to partnering with Global Skills Hub on future roles."
