10 days ago
Swim Recruiting is recruiting for a Recruiter- now repeat that 3 times fast!

Who- the Company:

Swim Recruiting is a successful and well-established boutique recruitment firm with a positive reputation due to our team of talented and dedicated recruiters as well as our honest and genuine business approach.  Swim was founded in 2007 and our company continues to grow- 33 people and counting! Swim Recruiters made placements with over 130 companies last year- companies that are publicly listed, private, public sector, and NPO, organizations in a wide variety of industries, small companies and huge companies.
At Swim, we believe that each person has their own style when it comes to being a successful Recruitment Consultant. We do not believe in placing unrealistic and over-bearing KPIs on the day-to-day running of your desk; instead, we trust your ability and give you the tools, space, and resources to do your job effectively and efficiently. We don’t micromanage… instead, we support you, trust you, and let you get on with it. As a result of the way we believe in doing business, we have experienced tremendous success in attracting the strongest candidates and developing solid relationships with some of the most respected employers in Vancouver.
  • 100% Vancouver owned and operated Company
  • Balanced work hard/play hard culture
  • Generous commission structure (that hasn’t changed in over 10 years!)
  • Flexible work schedules

What- the Role: 

Recruitment Consultant, working alongside many others on the successful Accounting & Finance, Administration, and Human Resources recruitment team. We work on entry-level roles right on up to executive-level roles, and short-term temp, long-term contract, and permanent positions. Swim’s most pressing need is for an experienced Recruiter who specializes in intermediate-to-senior level accounting & finance recruitment. Although we already have great candidate and client networks, there are still plenty of people and companies in this city and beyond that we could be working with! The sky is the limit for a driven Recruiter.

Who- the Candidate: 

We are seeking an experienced, talented, and self-motivated Accounting & Finance Recruitment Consultant to join our close-knit and top-notch A&F recruitment team. This will be a permanent full-time role, in which you will be surrounded by some of the best and most experienced recruiters in Vancouver under the leadership of well-networked and knowledgeable Vancouver recruitment veterans. We will be reviewing every application on a case-by-case basis but preference will be given to those with prior experience in Accounting & Finance recruitment, with secondary preference for Human Resources and/or Administration recruitment.
Culturally, you will be the type of person who loves to have a laugh at the office and you do not take yourself too seriously. You have an entrepreneurial mindset, take initiative, are results oriented, and have a strong sense of urgency. Swimmers are a fun bunch of people who like to work hard but also believe playing hard to be just as important; this relaxed and down to earth attitude has been key to our success with both candidates and clients who find it easy to relate to us on a personal level.

What- the Qualifications:

  • Over 18 months of full-cycle recruitment experience in a Recruiting Firm. 
  • Experience recruiting within Accounting & Finance!
  • Excellent communication skills- verbal, non-verbal, and written
  • Experience working on a high volume of diverse searches
  • Experience using an ATS as well as recruitment platforms such as LinkedIn


Based at Swim’s super transit friendly downtown Vancouver office inside Waterfront Station- 601 West Cordova Street.


We need to grow our awesome team to keep up with the amazing demand that we've created in the local A&F industry. We guarantee your days will be full and busy, with no shortage of searches to work on! At time of writing this posting we have 55+ searches open in Accounting & Finance alone.

How Much:

  • Swim offers two options- full commission (this has the highest earning potential!) or base salary plus lower % of commissions.
  • 23 “Swim Days”- to be used for vacation, personal days, family days- whatever you want! Plus, Swim often closes the office for a few bonus days at Christmas.
  • Health & Dental benefits
  • Cell phone plan reimbursement
  • Annual reward trip for top performers (2020 trip is to Mexico!)
  • Etcetera, etcetera… let’s talk!
