The SecuRecruit Difference
SecuRecruit Service

As the risks faced by organizations become more unpredictable, corporate security management roles are becoming more integral to business success. The experience and knowledge requirements demanded of security leadership candidates have never been higher. Evidence suggests that it is increasingly difficult to source qualified security management talent to fill available positions within the Canadian marketplace.

Faced with these hiring challenges employers have few options when recruiting for senior security roles. One option is for in-house HR professionals or business units to perform a candidate search through direct advertising, often including company websites and social networking sites. An increasingly popular alternative is to engage a contingency or executive search firm to source and pre-qualify applicants on your behalf.

David Hyde and Associates offers a third alternative to Canadian employers. Our SecuRecruit service combines corporate security professionals - who have a unique ability to assess security leadership capability - and seasoned recruiters who have the background to identify the "best fit" for the corporate culture and values of the hiring organization.

Our customized SecuRecruit solution offers a number of benefits for prospective employers, including:

  1. Access to an extensive candidate pool - through our national security consulting network and well-developed industry affiliations we penetrate much deeper into the professional security industry than other search firms, enabling us to identify both active and passive job candidates.
  2. Top quality candidate short-list - a dedicated corporate recruiter and senior security professional are assigned to each candidate search. This results in a higher quality selection process and a more diverse selection of short-listed candidates being presented to the client.
  3. Customized search methodology - our 7-step search methodology is fully customized for the executive and management level security career marketplace, resulting in a highly successful candidate placement and retention rate.

At David Hyde and Associates our extensive, carefully-cultivated professional security network places us in a unique position to access top-tier security leadership talent from across Canada. We also provide interim security management services on a contract basis, as well as post-hire support for clients in the form of customized on-boarding and mentoring services for security management professionals.
