We are a Canadian corporation offering contract and permanent placement services to the Information Technology community.
At Stop the World Inc. our goal is simple; we want to provide our clients with the most technically competent and professional candidates available. We offer you our commitment that all assignments will be handled with the highest level of ethical standards and attention to quality service possible.
Stop the World has been operating in the Toronto area since 1997 and has focused on servicing a select but varied group of clients. The owner of Stop the World Inc. is Kirsten Barr. Kirsten has over 20 years of IT recruiting experience and has built a reputation based on honesty and integrity. Kirsten offers valuable experience recruiting on a wide variety of positions from junior programming and network support roles to senior design and management positions. This experience helps ensure that only experienced, technically pre-screened candidates will be presented to your firm. Kirsten also served 3 years with our industry association, APPAC (the precursor to ACSESS). She served 2 years as Ethics Chairman and 1 year as Treasurer.
As a small firm, we feel confident that our personal service and work ethic is more than a match for some of the larger companies we compete with. We are able to offer supplementary services such as payroll services for contractors hired directly by your firm. We are also willing to tailor our invoicing and contractor timekeeping requirements to your specific needs.
