About Us

Venor was created by two partners who shared a vision and a passion for building a different kind of talent firm. Venor works because we work for you. We are proactive, nimble and relationship-focused. We treat our clients as partners. Our goal is to cultivate long-lasting relationships with the talent we represent. Our vast networks allow us to consistently deliver the right recruitment and talent solutions for long-term success.

Whether it’s bringing a key leader back to the Maritimes from their experience abroad, or helping a local company expand their operations internationally, we find success through the success of our clients and the talent we represent. The business climate in Atlantic & Eastern Canada is surging, but the standard for care remains high in our close-knit ecosystem. That’s why Venor works – we are a relationship-centric search firm and talent partner, not a transactional staffing company. While we pride ourselves on our efficiency and resourcefulness, we still go above and beyond to ensure quality, integrity and diligence. It’s an approach that earns us the business of like-minded leaders focused on long-term outcomes.

Bottom line: whether you’re a client or a candidate, Venor invests in your talent.
