Jessica Miles, Senior Recruiter and Headhunter for Goldbeck

Jessica’s Story

Jessica Miles has been a Senior Recruiter with Goldbeck Recruiting for almost eight years. Having successfully placed over 500 professionals, Jessica works with varied industries including industrial (mining, pulp and paper, industrial equipment, manufacturing, energy), healthcare (private fee for service, pharmaceuticals, medical devices) and a range of both B2B and B2C services. She mostly recruits intermediate, senior and c-suite level positions, including sales managers, general managers, directors, VPs, across Canada, the USA and internationally. 

Jessica takes pride in understanding her client’s requirements and scouring the market to find the best talent. She methodically and thoroughly headhunts passive and active candidates in relevant labour markets, with a focus on uncovering what makes them “tick”. Small or large, Jessica treats all companies like they are a VIP client.

On top of Jessica’s knack for introducing the best available talent to her clients, she is a critical HR resource. She helps navigate complex HR situations, from confidential searches, skill testing, candidate comparison, background checks, reference checks, offer negotiation, to employment standards.

Prior to joining Goldbeck Recruiting, Jessica worked with Mitacs and matched undergraduate students with university researchers across Canada. She helped manage the Globalink program, bringing exceptional researchers to Canada for graduate studies and economic development.
