"Accountable, thoughtful and driven to provide the absolute best candidate, Nancy’s keen insight into the market and her dogged determination to find the right candidate make her an absolute joy to work with. We engaged with Nancy to find a Facility Manager for an important Healthcare P3 Project in the Greater Toronto Area during a time of relative volatility in the market and recognizing that the multitude of skills and experiences for the position were tough to find in a single individual. Nancy searched high and low to find us the right candidates and did so from a position of strength given the significant due diligence she did with us in establishing our needs for the position. In the end we got exactly the candidate we needed. I highly recommend Nancy and look forward to engaging with her again soon."

Your level of service was second to none and your professionalism and accessibility was greatly appreciated.

Cole Engineering

Cole Engineering is a multi-discipline engineering firm providing specialized consulting and engineering solutions.

"Finding a new recruiting firm is always a difficult task – you need someone you can trust, who has integrity to spare and will take the time to understand you and your business so that they can then turn around and represent you and your organization in a professional manner. NLC Recruiting finds you that passive candidate who didn’t know they wanted a new job! All this while maximizing value for both prospective employees and clients. Nancy was originally referred to me by an HR professional whom I highly regard. I have now worked with her on a number of hard to fill placements and she has exceeded every expectation from that original referral – each time she has delivered a high calibre candidate, in a short amount of time, and within budget! IF you need an exceptional new employee, you need to engage an exceptional recruiter. Nancy Chapman is that recruiter."

"Nancy at NLC Recruiting was referred to me at a time when I was specifically seeking an external recruitment partner with integrity. In short order, I found that Nancy took the time to thoroughly understand our company, as well as the current and future needs of each of the candidates placed. Nancy does not “sell” the candidate. She builds trust by offering reality and reason along with her professional opinion. She is a pleasure to work with. Nancy recently placed three impressive candidates in just one of our offices and she has quickly become the preferred recruitment resource for technical hires in both the public and private sectors of our business."

The time and effort put into finding the right people is obvious. I make it a practice to ask the candidates about their experience working with Nancy. In all cases, it is clear that she has the ability to make contact with the potential candidate and present an opportunity in the most appropriate manner. With sincerity and honest, Nancy simply calls ad establishes at the onset. She is discreet and affords the utmost respect and confidentiality to all concerned. Candidates have also commented that she is extremely diligent about returning calls promptly."

"Darton Property Advisors & Managers had identified the need to add a senior executive to lead and develop its commercial leasing business. This role would be a central driver of our growth and business development initiatives, and a key member of our executive team as Vice President of Leasing. Nancy’s understanding of people, and her ability to relate key personality characteristics to the requirements of the position was excellent. The search and exchange of information between our executive team and Nancy was orchestrated in a timely and extremely efficient format. The depth of Nancy’s experience and knowledge of the recruiting process, coupled with her energy and enthusiasm made the process very professional and the caliber of candidates attracted “top-notch”. In fact the recruiting process generated significant attention from the market, and served to advance our business image as a growing and dynamic group. We received very positive feedback from several outside parties who had come to hear that were recruiting. We feel all of our objectives were met and exceeded; an ideal candidate, a well structured remuneration package, and an efficient use of executive time. I would strongly recommend Nancy Chapman."

However, it was her valuable insight and instinct of knowing what buttons to push and when that created the biggest benefit. Nancy delivered a service proposition with precision and professionalism resulting in the successful placement of the right person to our team and indeed one very satisfied customer."

"I engaged Nancy recently to source two individuals to add to our growing dynamic team. My experience was seamless and filled with results. Having been in the industry for 16 years, I have learned what works and what doesn’t. My personal meeting I was quite clear as to our story and that of what I was looking for. She took the story, identified a long list of quality candidates, as a result I had a very short list of qualified candidates. My dealings with Nancy were of the utmost, no nonsense, gave me what I was looking for and quite frankly, she gets it! Nancy is one of the most professional and supportive individuals I have had the opportunity to meet and work with. My experience will continue as work together in the coming years! "
