Recruitment Missions

Recruiting senior-level employees is a challenge, and our companies are often forced to look out of market for the right people. It can be daunting for individual companies to identify and attract top foreign talent that meets their organization’s needs. International talent missions are a solution for employers facing these challenges. 

YES! Winnipeg's talent team approaches each mission with a Team Manitoba mindset - we partner with government, post-secondary institutions and industry. We have a dedicated team to plan and manage logistics, marketing, job board applicant tracking, interview scheduling and other support services.

They made commendable efforts to accommodate the restrictions imposed by COVID and facilitate interactions with global talent.
