HR Director, CMS Client
Boutique HR Consulting and Outplacement Services in Vancouver. The goal at CMS is to provide you with responsive, professional and personal support both locally and nationwide – support that you can rely on to be consistent and meaningful. We have priced our range of full-service 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!

I had the pleasure of working with CMS on developing my resume and cover letters for different areas of business. All were a pleasure to deal with and seemed to understand what was required to enhance my documents to a level of perfection. When I needed their help they were always available to talk and work through the processes with me. They offered other suggestions that may help in opening up different avenues for business opportunities. I found CMS not only a great help in wording and plat forming my business documents to the point of being very professional and eye appealing, but they also offered words of advise and seemed to work with an open door policy to help me succeed in what I wanted to accomplish. I found them to really care about my personal outcome. Their professionalism and supportive ear is a rare commodity to find in todays business climate.
CMS took the time to understand what I wanted and needed to succeed. Without a doubt I would recommend CMS to help enhance your business documents, and guide you to successful results!!
