Passionate. Honest. Resourceful. These are some of the qualities that make Craig Coady one of Atlantic Canada’s top recruitment professionals. They have helped Craig earn the trust of clients and candidates across Canada who value his transparent approach as well as his consistent ability to deliver quality results.
A native of Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, Craig graduated Memorial University with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Human Resources in 1998 and immediately moved to Toronto where he joined a national staffing agency. After returning home to develop relationships with technology employers in St. John’s, Craig moved to Halifax in 2001 to cement himself in the local market. After joining a national search firm in 2003 and helping to build their Halifax office, Craig was asked to transfer to Calgary where the booming Oil & Gas market was a great place for his dynamic style. Finally in 2008, he moved to Ottawa to be with his now-wife, and spent a year promoting IT consultants to the federal government. In late 2009, Craig and his wife moved back to Halifax where Craig joined the region’s top executive search firm and helped to grow their contingency recruitment practice. Here Craig met Ian Sullivan and found that they shared many of the same philosophies around recruitment, business and people as well as an entrepreneurial spirit.
Craig is a Director on the Board of Metro Works, a skills development agency that has helped thousands of people overcome obstacles to employment. He currently resides in Hubley with his wife.
