I connected with Stevenson & White and Tracey through LinkedIn. Tracey was really eager to get to know me and my experiences as soon as I reached out to her. She was very professional and extremely knowledgeable about the finance & accounting skill sets. She was able to find the perfect match for my qualifications, skills and experience within a very short period of time. Being a new immigrant in Ottawa, I couldn’t have found this amazing opportunity without Tracey’s help. She has strong negotiation skills that result in a win-win for all the parties concerned. I have recommended Tracey to anyone I know seeking finance job opportunities in Ottawa and will continue to do so.

I have worked with Stevenson & White for almost 15 years, as both a candidate and an employer. Regardless of the role they play in filling a job, they are always professional, responsive and honest in their evaluation of whether a candidate is appropriate for a role. They will provide critical feedback to ensure a successful placement and will never just place a candidate to fill a role. They stand behind their placements, communicate well with both candidates and employers, and take the time required to ensure a positive outcome.

The whole process was very quick and thorough. I was having a mid career crisis and wanted to explore what else was out there. Matt called me a few days after submitting my application. I felt like he really listened and also gave me great advice from his wealth of knowledge as a recruiter in the finance field. Luckily, he had a job that was a perfect fit for me. The whole process took about 2 weeks and I was able to secure a job with better pay, better benefits and overall better growth opportunity, which was why I was looking for a change in the first place.

Mike Fleming, CEO at FCI Electronics

l always saw Paul as more of a mentor than a recruiter. He’s someone who takes the time to understand not only your career goals, but who you are as a person. When I was on my career journey, Paul was there mentoring me every step of the way and worked tirelessly to not just find me a job, but find the right job fit.

Irene Cunningham, Financial Analyst

Having relocated to Ottawa from Toronto, I was nervous to embark in my job search and contacted Stevenson & White after reading so many positive reviews online. After my initial call with Matt, I had a feeling that they would be a great fit in helping with my search. Matt and his team did a wonderful job sending me positions they thought would be of interest. They took their time to listen to what I was looking for and Tracey reached out to me with a perfect opportunity in an area of accounting I was really interested in gaining more experience in. She knew that challenging work that would still provide a work life balance and having great leaders was something really important to me and CATSA truly delivers in this. Tracey was helpful and communicative throughout the entire process. I truly appreciate Matt, Tracey and the entire Stevenson and White team’s help!
