"I am definitely impressed by CAC’s involvement and commitment in the entire recruitment process.CAC has provided me with sufficient resources to prepare for the interview and has done an excellent job with negotiation in terms of salary and bonus. CAC was available for additional consultation services while I was ready to make an important decision. Most importantly, CAC believes in building and maintaining a long term relationship. My overall experience with Ben has been excellent. He is very transparent in his communication and he clearly understands what the employers are looking for from new and/or experienced CPAs. During my first meeting with Ben, his main objective was to clearly understand my skills, qualification and expectations so that he can find me a position which is a good fit for me."

"I appreciated the fact that Bill listened to what I was looking for and provided roles aligned to it. He was always available for me to ask questions or make phone calls, even on days he had off. It felt like a genuine effort from him to help me get to the point in my career I was trying to versus the focus being on getting commission from the recruiting fee, which has been the case with other recruiting firms that I’ve dealt with. They would ignore any preferences I had for roles and would push roles I had no interest in on to me. Bill was great. He was friendly, professional, catered to my career goals, and was always available for any questions or concerns I had. He was especially helpful between the time from the offer being made to me accepting it, offering his advice on how to handle the negotiations and understanding all aspects of what the benefits entailed. I definitely feel like I made the right decision and have no regrets from leaving my prior job."

Manager, FP&A, Entertainment sector

"Since I first met with CAC in 2013, they have always reached out to see how I was doing in my career in a non-intrusive way (e.g. not calling me at work). CAC was the first recruiting firm that I contacted when I returned from my trip this past summer. Adele was very supportive and easy to talk to. I appreciated her keeping me in the loop regarding next steps in the interview process and promptly providing feedback (from the company’s perspective) on my interviews. I am very excited about this opportunity. I think it will be an incredible learning and career development opportunity for me."

Vice President of Finance & Operations, Investment sector

"I appreciated the clarity and frequency of communication, as well as the personal attention and time given. Both Ben & Bill were excellent in this regard and I did not feel like a “number”. I felt that the roles that were presented to me by CAC were the type of opportunities that aligned with my career goals and CAC’s client's run interesting businesses. The FP&A role was something I strongly desired. The role that CAC connected me with hit off many of my personal checkmarks/wishlists and it proved to be something that was too good to pass up."

Senior Financial Analyst, FP&A, Technology sector

The experience I had with CAC was exceptional. They knew exactly what type of individuals I was looking for and provided me with excellent candidates.  There was no pressure from CAC which I have experienced from in the past with other recruitment firms and there was a keen focus on finding a good fit for both myself and the candidates. Bill is an excellent partner to work with and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for team resources.  His professionalism and ability to provide quality candidates is leaps and bounds ahead of any recruitment firm I have worked with.”

Associate Director - Finance, Telecommunications industry

"I had an incredible experience working with Adele at CAC. Adele became my personal advisor, supporter and mentor during my interview process. At the beginning of the process, she provided me with a lot of helpful materials and information for my preparations. Adele kept me informed at every stage in the interview process and tried to provide me with as much feedback as she could get from the company, helping me to progress.

She always listened to everything I had to say before/after each interview, and provided me with her insights and advice. When deciding about the role, she made sure I considered all the criteria that I found important and that I thought through whether this was the right opportunity for me. The company seems to have an amazing culture, work/life balance, benefits, and incredible opportunity for growth within the FP&A department. In addition, the role seems to have various facets to it which would allow me to get exposure to different departments, resulting in me growing both professionally and personally."

Senior Financial Analyst, FP&A, Pharmacuetical sector

"I worked with both John and Bill. I was comfortable knowing that both are professionals in their fields with years of experience. John being my first contact at CAC, I appreciate that he did not bombard me with all the available job opportunities, but instead took the time to recognize what my interests were and only presented opportunities which were aligned. For this specific role, I worked closely with Bill who was exceptional in breaking down the background of the company, made sure I was prepared for the interview and patiently answered all my questions.

It was nice to know that he also helped recruit several existing employees of the company and thus was able to provide valuable insight. I found this experience handled in a very professional manner. Bill definitely kept me in the loop with timely updates. I also value the amount of time spent prepping me for the initial interview. I was surprised by the due diligence CAC completed with respect to reference checks; however, it did make me feel more comfortable knowing the process and I would definitely rely on CAC in the future should I be hiring for my own team."

Finance Manager, Technology sector

Quite simply head and shoulders above any recruitment firm encountered to date in this job search. CAC are clearly committed to a long term working relationship and not simply the next sales opportunity.  I have been impressed with the level of integrity, professional knowledge, personal touch and thoroughness, just to name a few attributes.  I believe that this is an excellent opportunity to develop my skills and add valuable relevant experience to my portfolio. CAC negotiated well on my behalf in terms of the hourly rate and other contractual terms and conditions.”

Senior Manager - Financial Reporting, Retail industry

"Bill was very helpful throughout the whole process and gave me great guidance from the interview stage till resignation. I felt quite neglected and forced when I worked with other recruitment firms. They either stopped contacting me when things didn’t work out or rushed me to take a position without letting me think it through.  Bill was a really great recruiter and helped me a lot during this process. He really helped me prepare for my interview and walked through some common questions that were asked before, which gave me an idea of what I needed to prepare. Bill was very responsive and frequently contacted me to provide me updates, which made this whole process less stressful."

Senior Accountant, Invesment sector

“Overall, I find CAC to be much less “pushy” than other search firms.  I first met John when I was working in public accounting and looking to leave the firm – he contacted me shortly after I had transitioned to industry and I explained that I would not be looking for other opportunities in the foreseeable future. I found John to be very respectful of this. He phoned me a few times during the year simply to check in and see if I was still happy or looking to make a move; we discussed timelines and such. I feel that with other search firms, my inbox seems to always be cluttered with job opportunities (many of which do not match my experience and career goals) – I do not get this from CAC and I am extremely grateful for this."
