WHY I WORK HERE

I had a great first encounter as a candidate for an accounting position. Clarity took the time to understand me as a person. Prior to Clarity, I trained with BDO and then moved to industry where I became a Director of Finance in the automotive sector with 12 years in audit and assurance. Joining Clarity has enabled me to leverage my finance background without being stuck in numbers and see how finance teams operate across industries and in different stages of a company’s lifecycle.

Domenico Magnelli

Dom joined as a Recruitment Analyst and has recently been promoted to Recruitment Lead of the Search division at Clarity.

I get to engage with smart people at the table and everyone is willing to teach and share. There is a high moral compass across the company. Before joining Clarity, I managed a recruitment team at a larger organization in accounting and finance. Since then, I have gained additional skills managing teams across multi geographies, partnering with the CEO on strategy, designing processes around the outcomes you want. At Clarity, I feel like you have the ability to bring ideas to life regardless of your level which is a unique place to be.

Amanda Da Silva

Amanda joined as a Recruitment Manager and is now the Head of Clarity’s Centre of Excellence for Recruitment.

We are on a mission to create the future of recruitment here. I came to Clarity with no fear of the phone and an analytical skill set from prior market research roles. Since then, I’ve helped candidates at all levels and companies at different stages make optimal decisions. I am particularly proud of the times I’ve told my candidates and clients to say “no” when I recognized a misalignment and acted in their best interest. I think we say “no” more than any other firm and that’s a part of what makes us successful. I like to keep things interesting and expanded Clarity to the West Coast last year by opening our first office in Vancouver. What’s next? I’ll be busy creating a market-dominating presence in Vancouver and publishing my first book on job interview dynamics.

    I worked at Clarity Recruitment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Clarity Recruitment for over a year and a half and it was by far the best experience I had of my 7 years in the industry. I left as I had an opportunity to start up a new organization in a different industry otherwise I would still be there.

    The only company that I have worked for in this space that applies scientific rigor around the decision making process that recruiters, clients and candidates use while deciding if a job/candidate are the right fit for one another. This helps both parties get a better objective look at the entire process which leads to happier candidates and clients.

    We always followed the "Be Human" mantra....another way to put it is "Take care of your clients and take care of your candidates." everything else in the middle will work out.

    What I enjoyed most is that this wasn't a boiler room of trained monkeys making the same phone calls every day, with meaningless metrics being driven down your throat. Don't get me wrong, you have to put in the effort but it's not just effort for effort's sake.

    Cons

    There are no real cons to speak of. It's an intense industry, but those who enjoy the consultative nature of the business....truly helping both candidates and clients alike find that right fit, will thrive and never look back. Resume slingers will quickly fail here.

    Interview

    I met with Ali Khan. He was very professional. He went through my resume asking me to elaborate on different aspects of it. He asked me about where I saw myself going and what I wanted to be and why. He seemed genuinely interested in helping bring out what I really wanted to do. Overall, it was one of the most enlightening interviews I have ever had and Ali was one of the most genuine and helpful interviewers I have ever met.
