Our search process

The Mason Group is a leading recruitment agency that specializes in the recruitment and placement of accounting, finance, and banking professionals in permanent or contract positions across the Greater Toronto and Vancouver Areas, for all levels from Financial Analyst to CFO.

Here’s a step-by-step approach to our Search Process

We begin with a thorough “job intake” process, preferably face to face at your place of business, so we can observe your operations. We’ll get to know your company and its culture, we’ll discuss the accounting, finance, or banking role you need to fill, and we’ll talk about the qualifications and skills the candidate must have to ensure success at your organization.

At the same time, you get to meet your dedicated recruitment consultant in person, allowing for a more tailored and personal business relationship.

Suitable candidates are then comparatively assessed, and a shortlist is prepared. Each candidate we shortlist has been interviewed in person by a recruitment consultant at The Mason Group, to ensure they have the relevant technical skills for the job and personality for your company culture.

When a shortlist is presented, we always include a short bio describing each candidate’s profile. Alternatively, or additionally, we can walk you through the profiles of each one of the selected candidates in a phone or in-person meeting.

After presentation of the shortlist, we arrange and coordinate the interviews, ensuring minimal disruption to the hiring manager. We obtain feedback from all parties, and manage communication with the candidate in a manner that respects both your professional integrity, as well as the candidate’s.

Depending on your needs, we can also arrange for these interviews to take place at any of our offices in the Greater Toronto and Vancouver Areas.

Once you express serious interest in one or more of the interviewed candidates, we conduct thorough references and background checks (upon request) to ensure there are no significant concerns.

When you’re ready to make an offer, we formalize our terms of engagement with both you and the successful candidate. Throughout this process we provide consistent and transparent updates to the hiring manager.

After a candidate has been placed at your organization, we follow up to ensure the placement was successful. In the case of contract assignments, we regularly stay in touch with both the client and the candidate, to ensure any concerns are addressed, so we can mutually work towards successful completion of the engagement.

We stand behind each and every placement we make by guaranteeing that the placement will be successful. If you are not completely satisfied with the candidate you have hired, we will find you a replacement. Read more about why The Mason Group is different and why clients choose to work with us.
