“ CMS provides the perfect blend of professional, compassionate & personal support to both our HR team, and our outgoing employees ”
HR Director, CMS Client
Boutique, Canadian career transition services and HR support for Ottawa. The goal at CMS is to provide you with responsive, professional and personal HR and Outplacement support nationwide – support that you can rely on to be consistent and meaningful. We have priced our range of outplacement programs so that they can be offered to anyone, irrespective of his or her function, income or carer level.
Searching for work and promoting oneself to total strangers in a competitive job market is a lonely and frustrating experience for most people. Our compassionate team and practical resources can make all the difference when one is trying to navigate through a job search.
Ultimately, we are in the ‘helping business’ and every member of our team feels personally responsible for the work we do for our candidates and the HR Managers who introduce them to us.
At CMS, we are all fully aware that our candidates’ success is also our success and reputation. To that end, we do not lock our corporate clients into annual contracts. To us, every job you give us is ‘the first job’ – and we make absolutely sure that you will always be happy to give us the next one!
