The Founder

With over 10 years of Recruitment experience, both in agency and corporate, Jessica has been able to differentiate herself against her recruitment competition, by engaging clients and talent differently.  Jessica believes in always staying scrappy while providing great client and candidate experiences. 

Jessica is a big proponent of Automation and Artificial Intelligence which she is currently using at Savant Recruitment and has been giving her a competitive advantage in the market when it comes to finding quality talent much faster than her competitors. She is described as scrappy and resourceful by her peers, which is what has led to her success with her clients to date. She is able to fill requisitions 30%-50% faster with quality talent. She is operating a new-age innovative agency.

Gone are the days of the Rolodex and Fax machines. 

History:

Jessica started her career in an agency, where she worked in various industries such as Manufacturing, Construction, Insurance, Pharma, and Technology. She became well-versed in the nuances of each industry, its structures, and its hierarchies.  She felt compelled to continue her career in the Technology space, where she has specialized in placing talent all across the Software Development Lifecycle. Jessica spent her first 5 years in agency recruitment, before moving over to corporate recruitment another 5 years working for a mid-sized SAP Consultancy and then moving on to a SaaS company focusing on Talent Attraction, Onboarding, and more. 

She works tirelessly with hiring managers to nail down exactly what it is they want and need from the talent they'd like to see. She has coached and continues to coach hiring managers on how to sell their company to the candidates they are interviewing so that the candidates can feel good about coming to the company. 

Jessica left corporate to start Savant Recruitment in January 2022. Jessica has been working with a small portfolio of clients all across North America, facilitating her client's Permanent and Contract needs painlessly and with quality.

Services

Quality Candidates, Every Single Time.

Full Cycle Recruitment

We start off with an Intake Session where we learn about your company, culture, teams, and what you are looking for in the ideal candidate. We create a customized approach so you know that we are catering to you every step of the way.

This step is crucial because it allows me to go out and sell your company, the way you would sell it. 

Technical Testing

If you don't have Technical Testing set up, don't worry, we do! In order to make sure we are sending fully viable candidates your way, we can conduct different types of short term tests to see if candidates will pass, before moving them on to your team. 

This is an extra step in my process, I like to do, so that we can save time and really know that the candidate knows what they are doing, before presenting them to your team.

Back-End Services

To ensure a job well done we do formal reference and background checks on your behalf, helping ease the process and saving you even more time and money!

Agreement Model

We know your search is important, and that is why we customize the way we work with you.

Exclusive Contingency: We can attest that having numerous agencies working on your positions may not be getting you the results you are looking for, if you have retained contingently . Take it from Jessica, many agencies are looking for as many clients as possible, and prioritizing the ones with the largest fee agreements. This means, they are not prioritizing your role the way you would have hoped. If you're not seeing the results you were expecting because you hired numerous agencies on a contingency model alone, there is a reason for it. Account Manager's only have one thing in mind, which is to gather as many roles as possible, while the recruiters working for them are not forced to work on those roles. This means that a recruiter at the agency may take a look around for maybe an hour, and then move on to the next role that is guaranteed and pays the highest fee. 

An Exclusive Contingency model is different because you are giving the roles to Jessica, to exclusively fill herself. She knows you are relying on her to get the job done, so she will be working around the clock to get you the candidates you are looking to see.

Contract Agreements - Jessica also specializes in finding contractors for your company and charges a competitive markup, to get you the contractors you desire.



Testimonials


Shota Zurabashvili

DevOps Manager - LiveSwitch | SimplyOn

When Jessica reached out she was able to represent the role and the company really well so I was truly impressed and hooked. I immediately responded and I’m glad I did. It was a great experience working with her. We soon built an engineering team of 5 rockstars only because Jessica can find talent screened and already a good fit almost out of thin air.



Marilyn Harron

Customer Success Manager - Planworth

Jessica reached out to me with the perfect opportunity. I have been really enjoying my position with my current company. She provided the expertise to know exactly what they wanted and went above and beyond to secure it. She was even pivotal to my negotiation experience. It was a pleasure to work with her.






Alanna Williams

Director, Culture & People Operations - LiveSwitch

Jessica is a combination of passion, talent and execution. From the start of her time at LiveSwitch she has been faced with a lot of challenges and she faces them head-on and tackles them easily! She is resourceful, friendly, tenacious and I love getting to learn from her about the complex world of tech recruiting.

Cadel Jones

Software Developer - Mixo

Jessica was incredible to work with. She kept me up to date and offered lots of helpful advice throughout the entire process. She was invested in my success and helped me land the perfect new opportunity. Having Jessica on my side was a real asset in my job search.

BRENdan Kam

Software Developer - Passiv

It was a pleasure working with Jessica.

Jessica is very passionate about what she does. From my time working with Jessica, it was very apparent to me that she puts in a lot of effort and care to get the best outcome for both the job seekers she's trying to recruit and her clients.

As a job seeker, Jessica will be there for you every step of the way. You can be assured that the companies she introduces you to will be a great fit for you. If she introduces you to a position, it's because she believes that you have a good chance of landing the job.

If you're an employer, you can be sure that Jessica will do her best to find the right candidates for you. But more importantly, the support and empathy Jessica gives to the job candidate could be the reason why they accept your offer over a competing offer.

If there was a 2022 Recruiter of the Year award, I would nominate Jessica for the award.


Ryan Christilaw

Senior Developer - Jonah Group

Jessica has been a great person to work with. I have received many messages from recruiters saying they have great opportunities for me, but once I see the job posting, realize that the position does not fit my background or experience level. This was not the case for Jessica. The position she found was actually a great fit for me which shows her attention to detail and the research she put into the process, rather than the usual templated messages I was receiving. Throughout the recruitment process she made every effort to ensure I was comfortable and prepared. Thank you for all your efforts.

James Truong

Senior Technical Analyst - Sunlife

Working with Jessica has been nothing short of awesome. Our working relationship first started over a year ago when I was approached with a great opportunity. While things had not worked out for that particular role, I was amazed with Jessica's drive and tenacity to keep searching for that perfect fit for me. I am now working for a great company in a role that allows me to grow and thrive, and this is all thanks to Jessica's hard work and professionalism. I highly recommend Jessica to anyone as I'm sure she can also help you find your perfect fit!
