About Us

Regardless of the role/vacancy/opportunity, our clients are looking for the best possible candidates in the market to fill them. These candidates are what we refer to as Pivots.

Definition of Pivot:
  • A person or thing that plays a central part in an activity or organization: synonyms:center, focus, hub, heart, nucleus.
  • A well recruited individual that fits the culture, role and future.
  • A key employee, a person that enhances your business.
  • A key hire provided by Pivot Staffing.

At Pivot Staffing, we fill 99% of our client’s roles through traditional headhunting techniques and personal networking. The majority of high calibre, high potential talent/pivots do not apply to job postings or place their resumes on job boards. The true value we offer is in being able to find and engage these candidates in a meaningful conversation. Our understanding of market conditions, candidate motivations and the opportunities that exist within our client’s organizations lay the foundation for a successful placement.

“Why would a company want to use our staffing services?”
“Why would a candidate be interested in this career opportunity?”
“Why would a client or candidate choose to do business with us over our competitors?”
“Why do I do what I do?”

To understand the Why is to understand the true motivation/s behind decision making.  It is through this lens that Courtney has built market-driven sourcing strategies and systematic business processes for hiring top talent for start ups to fortune 100’s.

These experiences have led to the creation of Pivot’s performance based interviewing process which qualifies and quantifies high potential, high performing, and highly engaged candidates.
