Build your team of exceptional people
Simple and complex searches take time—more time than you and your people need to advertise, sort resumes, and interview candidates. Delegate those tasks to our search consultants and get back to your own responsibilities.
In our capable hands, your hiring process gains rigour and discipline. Our approach, perfected over the past 50 years, quickly identifies, qualifies, and recommends star candidates to you.
We take the guesswork out of finding exceptional people. Start working with the first name in Canadian executive search: Mandrake.
Our Mandrake story
Mandrake got its start in 1970, thanks to the vision and ambition of a prolific talent recruiter named Harold Perry. Harold Perry opened the first Mandrake office at Bloor and Bay in Toronto.
By the 1980’s, Harold and his fast-growing team established Mandrake as one of the most innovative recruitment firms in the country, producing its first CEO hires for Nestle, Pillsbury, and Max Factor.
The biggest benefit Mandrake’s executive search services provide to our clients must be how we skillfully mitigate risk surrounding the hiring process–especially as it applies to hiring senior-level executives. We called it de-risking the hiring process.
As such, we’ve developed a seven-step methodology that increases the accuracy of hiring top executives while reducing risks associated with C-level and senior leadership positions.
Mandrake provides recruitment solutions to a wide range of organizations, including large private and publicly traded corporations, small-medium enterprises, government, public-sector, and not-for-profit organizations.
