Our recruiting services encompass a wide range of activities, from crafting targeted job descriptions to sourcing talent.

These networks provide us with an even larger talent pool to draw from, further enhancing our ability to find the ideal fit for your company. This unique synergy helps us tap into individuals who may or may not be actively seeking a new role, or change of industry, but are perfect for your needs.

You can rest assured that no one has been doing cannabis industry recruiting longer and nobody understands it better! Whether you’re looking to round out your executive team, engage an external consultant, or fill any other gap in your organization, we’ve got you covered!

We encourage you to have a look at the kinds of cannabis industry roles we recruit for.

This service involves a meticulous process of defining the role’s requirements, scanning the market, identifying potential candidates, conducting in-depth assessments, and facilitating negotiations and onboarding to ensure a smooth transition.

Our Executive Team Development offering is designed to build your leadership team from the ground up. A company is only as strong as its leaders and we understand the importance of having a cohesive, strategically aligned executive team. We start by identifying the unique needs and goals of your organization and then match these with the skills and experience of high-caliber professionals in our extensive network. Our screening process includes a thorough evaluation of potential team dynamics and compatibility with your company’s culture.

Each member’s unique strength is leveraged to create a synergistic leadership team that can efficiently navigate the challenges of the evolving cannabis industry and steer your organization toward success. This service ensures not only the recruitment of top-tier executives but also the formulation of a collective leadership that embodies your company’s vision and is equipped to realize it.

We understand that at times, your organization may need an experienced executive on a part-time basis to drive a specific project, fill a temporary role, or provide leadership during a transition period. In these scenarios, our Fractional Executive Placement service is an ideal solution.

This service allows you to tap into top-tier leadership talent without the commitment of a full-time executive role, offering flexibility and cost-effectiveness while maintaining high-quality strategy and decision-making within your organization. As with our full-time placements, we ensure that these fractional executives are carefully vetted, align with your company culture, and have the skills necessary to fulfill their roles effectively.

Recognizing that a dynamic, diverse, and proficient board is a driving force behind any successful organization, we focus on assembling boards that are equipped to guide your company’s strategic direction. Our extensive network enables us to identify and recruit experienced board members who possess the specific industry knowledge, leadership skills and unique perspectives that align with your company’s mission and values. We also provide support for ongoing board management and development, ensuring that your board remains effective and updated as the company evolves and the business environment changes.
