Advertised Search Recruiting

Our primary solution for recruiting is our advertised search service. We believe this process is the best way to attract and hire the most qualified skilled trades candidates. By providing all necessary information on the job opportunity and your organization to candidates up front we are able to attract better quality candidates. We then screen them to ensure you hire top performers. This also helps ensure they are candidates who will stay with you for years to come.

Background Checking

Red Seal has online solutions for completing background checks. Working with our partners, we can have the results of a criminal record check within 1-2 business days for candidates within Canada. In addition, we will also conduct multiple supervisory reference checks on each candidate that we place, and we will forward those results on to you. We are also experienced with criminal record and reference checking for international candidates.

Aptitude Testing

Red Seal has worked with Shawn Bakker an Industrial Psychologist with Psychometrics Canada to design a package of tests tailored to recruiting trades people. These tests are a valuable tool that assist us in making the decision to bring a candidate on site for a final interview.

Psychometric tests alongside of interviewing offers a reliable, objective, and cost-effective measure of the personal characteristics that predict job performance. Our collection of mechanical, verbal, numerical and personality tests, measure candidates' problem solving and learning skills.

  • Personality Index- measures 17 personality traits related to job performance
  • Mechanical Reasoning Test - a test of spatial reasoning ability
  • Verbal and numerical ability tests
  • Employee Reliability Inventory - identify high risk candidates
