We’re all about candid conversations and real relationships — because there’s no better way to understand who people (and companies) really are. Driven by an obsession with fit, we offer recruitment services for every function of any business, including Executive Search. Our business is getting to the heart of candidates and companies alike, so we can land dream jobs and implement dream teams all in one go.

We study your business, culture, and vision inside and out to gain first-hand insight into who will succeed there. By using innovative techniques to conduct thorough market searches, we’re able to create and engage with a shortlist of only the most suited talent. We’re not interested in filling roles. We’re interested in fulfilling dreams. Being meticulous in our search and selection process connects companies to candidates in a way that leaves everyone happy — especially us.

Briefing

We learn the nuances of your culture and organisation so we can find people who aren’t just qualified, but who belong. You’ll quickly come to see us as members of the team — and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Research

This is where we use tenacity in its purest form. We dig to uncover hidden gems, creatively expanding, refining, and optimizing our search strategy along the way. In the end, we’re left with a hit list of the very best in the market.

Outreach

Conversations are a two-way street, and we open every lane. We listen with empathy and speak candidly to deepen our relationship with each candidate. Getting to the heart of what matters to them in their careers means we can ensure the fit is right — for both sides.

Process

Remember what we said about being members of the team? We meant that. Our work isn’t done until we’re satisfied everyone feels informed, confident and supported. We manage all parties throughout the process (and after) to ensure the partnership between client and candidate remains solid.

I have known and worked with Victoria for over 7 years, when she approached me for my role at Vega. Since then, she has become an invaluable support and strategic partner for me as a HR Leader. Victoria has long been my “secret weapon”, she is someone who can quickly understand the culture of a business and the people who align and combine that with understanding the organizational strategy, where that business is heading and how future talent acquisition fits in. She and her team have the experience of working with both large and small, across every function, from C-Suite to Junior, so she gets the business and the role and is able to go out to the market and uncover amazing talent that meets our needs on both experience and fit. She operates with incredible drive and passion to ensure the right fit is there for both the candidate and the company — it’s not just about filling roles, but filling them with the right people, which is why I value her so much as a partner as she is truly invested and cares likes she is part of our company.

Victoria has done an incredible job recruiting talent for our growing company. Her and her team take the time to get to know not just the position needing to be filled, but the company, its team, and its culture. This approach has led to numerous successful recruitments across multiple areas of our business. If you’re looking to fill a key position, put your trust in Victoria. You won’t be disappointed.

Garin Josey, Executive Vice President and COO, William F. White International Inc.

I have worked with Victoria for a number of years and have consistently had an excellent experience. She is very thorough in terms of understanding client needs and takes the specifics of the role, organizational structure, and importantly culture all into consideration. The candidates she has brought forward are exceptional time after time, and I absolutely trust and recommend her.

I am extremely happy with the outcome of our partnership with Victoria Newitt. She provided equal parts of support, direction and market intel all delivered with a refreshing directness that worked very well for us. What I appreciated the most was the extensive effort Victoria made on the front end to understand our company and our team and our culture, in addition to the role itself. Throughout the process she kept me well informed, she checked her thinking, she looked for feedback, and adjusted along the way. The end result was 5 fully qualified candidates for a senior position in our company, which allowed us to choose the best fit for our leadership team, our culture, and for the future of our organization. We couldn’t be happier.

Lisa Dudley, Vice President of People and Culture, Rennie

I hired Victoria when our previous recruitment agency failed to deliver quality candidates for our consideration. All that changed when Victoria came onto the business. Immediately the quality of the candidates we were seeing went up dramatically. I got high quality briefings on the backgrounds of the candidates and Victoria’s perspective on who would fit and have the right skills to work at Nature’s Path were bang-on. Further, the candidates themselves were well prepared for their interviews and well-managed with respect to the level of compensation they could expect. What separates Victoria further from other recruiters is the hands-on service she provides during AND after the search. Not only was she always available when we were looking, but she has done repeated follow-ups with both the selected candidates and my team to ensure that all are happy with their choices. The net result is a high-quality team that is performing very well. It shows in our business results as well as our overall team satisfaction. In a market where it is difficult to find quality CPG marketers, Victoria has the network to find great people to fill needs at all levels of an organization.

Darren Mahaffy, General Manager, Optimi Health

I had the pleasure of working with Victoria for the first time and can’t say enough great things about her! Right out of the gates she dug in with the right questions to understand the skills we were looking for, but even more importantly she dug into the characteristics needed to thrive within our culture. The process was incredibly efficient, and we ended up with an excellent pool of candidates, and ultimately an excellent new team member. Her experience having worked in the Marketing space herself is invaluable and helps her to keenly assess talent and fit. Plus, she’s a lot of fun to work with. Wins all around!

Nikki Hellyer, Vice President of Marketing, Tours By Local 

Victoria is one of the best recruiters I’ve had the pleasure to work with. She takes the time to truly understand the needs of the business, emphasizing culture, and acts as a business partner focussed on finding top performers. Exceptionally passionate about her craft, Victoria cuts through the clutter, presenting top-notch candidates that demonstrate her grasp of the strategic goals of the organization she is supporting. More than this, though, Victoria truly cares about both the companies and the candidates she represents, and is motivated to find the best possible alignment so that both company and candidate can thrive.

Laura Wait, Vice President, People & Culture, Sunrise Farms

I have had the pleasure of knowing and collaborating on projects with Victoria for 6 years. Victoria is amazing. She is thorough, thoughtful, compassionate, proactive, straightforward and just a really nice person to be around. A rare combination that results in her bringing a very balanced approach to everything she lends her energy to. She leads by example, is a purpose and core value champion and brings the very best out of everyone she encounters. Get Victoria into your personal and business circle of influence. You will be glad you did.
