About Us

Arbutus Search Group

Our Purpose

Offer the most customer centric recruitment and search service available while positively impacting the lives of our clients, the professionals we place and our community.

Our Goal

To find the absolute best professionals suited to your culture and the technical requirements of the role while leaving you feeling happy with the process and confident in your new hire.

Our Approach

We take the time to truly understand what your company does and how you do it differently than anyone else. We want to know what makes you unique. Then we dig deep, we search, we search some more, we cold call, we cold call some more, and we spread the word about what an amazing organization this is to work for. It's about marketing you to a larger candidate pool of talented people – people who are passionate about the why and who want to make a difference on their team and in their organizations.

Our Expertise

Lead by principal, Joel Peterson, who’s been recruiting for over 10 years across 3 continents, we understand what it takes to make a great hire. We are known for our personal and individualized approach and for filling those hard to fill jobs. We love meeting new people and get a great deal of joy in hearing about how your new hire is doing. We have recruited hundreds of employees for many unique companies but our sweet spot is Marketing, Sales, HR and Engineering.

Our Values

Work hard and have fun doing it. Be transparent and honest with every client and candidate while serving in our community. 

Our Guarantee

We know that in rare cases things don’t work out perfectly which is why we offer a 100% guarantee on all of our placements. Since 2010 we have only needed to activate our replacement guarantee for 3 hires. What’s more important to know is that the majority of our placements not only meet expectations but they exceed them. Many of the people we have placed over the years have been promoted within 1 year of being hired. 2 in particular went on to start an entirely new division within their organizations resulting in millions of dollars of additional revenue growth. Ask us for more information on how our placements perform better and earlier than an average hire.
