What our team has to say

  • Working with the recruiting team, especially Melissa, convinced me that I made the right decision to apply for a position with Calian. Due to my job requirement, the hiring process was intricate and the recruiting team was there for me every step of the way. They were friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and made me very comfortable with the process. I knew what was expected of me and always felt the recruiting team was doing their best for me and for Calian.

    Calian, Instructional Designer

  • I am an independent consultant who has worked through Calian recruiting in Ottawa to obtain a number of government contracts over the past five years. I have always been impressed by the professional, pro-active and highly motivated manner that Calian recruiters continually display in finding contracts that fit my personal skills and needs. I fully recommend Calian recruiting to other independent contractors looking for short or long term government or private contracts.

    Calian, Special Advisor - Training

  • I have been dealing with Calian since 2004 and I have always been treated extremely well, professionally and respectfully. They are a first class organization and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

    Calian, Human Resource Consultant

  • I have been working for Calian since 2011 and I have nothing but great things to say. Calian really takes care of their consultants, they go beyond to satisfy their requirements and make them happy. I am really happy I chose Calian.

    Calian, SAP HR Analyst

  • I have been a contractor with Calian for the last few years. I am amazed with the attention and diligence that they show me. I think this is so important when working remotely to know that the employer is responsive and caring. It makes my work more productive and satisfying. Thank you Calian!

    Calian, Leadership Development Consultant

  • I thought it was so helpful how Melissa massaged my resume for the client but also how she walked me through the process. Since I came from a strictly academic background I wasn't familiar with some of the terms that are used in the ID world and she helped make those correlations in skill sets for me. Melissa has been and continues to be, a tremendous help and support while I have been working for Calian.

    Calian, Instructional Designer

  • The assistance and direction I've received from Calian Human Resources has been exceptional. I had been searching the Calian jobsite for a position relevant to my background, unaware that there were other opportunities available that suited my experience. Thanks to their diligence and consideration, I am now happily employed in an excellent position that exceeds any expectations I had.

    Calian, Instructor and Integrated Logistics Specialist

  • I would have no hesitation recommending Calian, and in fact, I will make sure I do. Your company exceeded my expectations. The service your company provides is top quality and you have made it easy for me to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Very professional, very helpful and the events were enjoyable

    Calian, HR Consultant

  • I am pleased to offer an appreciation of the path that led to my becoming a Calian Independent Contractor. The approach was greatly facilitated by Alexandra who guided me through a series of intricate steps which crossed interprovincial boundaries, and she was able to smoothly address all of the minutiae in the process. I was always fully informed during the various steps leading to a contractual agreement in a manner that was characterized by sensitivity and smoothness. I was, as well, connected to the clinic in question enabling an appraisal of both the work expectations and the social/geographical milieu in a fashion that was seamless and realistic. I am very happy and contented with the process I went through.

    Calian, Psychiatrist

  • I am very satisfied with the service provided by Kal from Calian Ltd, Ottawa. Within a very short time they were able to provide all that I had requested. The selection process went very smoothly, the project started as planned. They were even willing to help me settle in Ottawa. I can strongly recommend them to anyone.

    Calian, SAP Basis Consultant

  • Thank you, Alexandra for making this experience so easy. Right from the start of the process I was impressed with your professionalism; you always provided timely responses and were so pleasant to work with. I truly appreciate the time you took to explain the process and answer all of my questions before I knew I had them. I would recommend any of my colleagues to apply to Calian without hesitation.

    Calian, Nurse Practitioner

  • My experience with being introduced to the Calian group has been without problems. I was contacted by the head office on an opportunity with DND which would be an experience of a life time. The process of getting my clearances, filling required papers and getting information to Calian went without problems. Issues which came up were quickly rectified by the team at Calian head office to ensure all went well. The team was in contact throughout the process making the transition to Calian an easy one. Upon arriving at my place of employment I was greeted and shown around and introduced to those I was to work for and with. I was quickly given access to the equipment and files required to do the job. It was a smooth and painless introduction into the Calian group and the team works together in harmony.

    Calian, Instructor

  • Looking for a job in a new province can be stressful. I applied for a position online and was contacted immediately. Calian's assistance and support was invaluable, I appreciated the professional and personal approach during the recruitment process.

    Calian, Registered Nurse

  • I have worked with several recruiting firms over the years and would place Calian at the top of the list. The front line recruiting staff are professionals who are not just passing through; I was in touch with the company over a four year period before accepting a contract and during that time it was the same person at every contact. The continuity made it very easy to establish a rapport even before accepting a contract with Calian. During the approval phase—working with Calian to place me with their client—my recruiter worked hard to help me focus my resume for the position. The focused resume made it easy for their client to accept me into the position and made it very clear what my skill set was. In other recruiting experiences I found recruiters more interested in placing me quickly without much concern about a good match for the position. Once on contract with Calian the human resources professionals were very efficient in establishing payroll and benefits. Overall I can’t think of any part of the experience working with Calian that I would change.

    Calian, E-Learning Developer

  • My initial contact with Calian through Kal was by far the best and most professional experience in my history as a consultant. Kal not only ensured I was placed in contracts that were best suited and challenging for me allowing me to maximise my potential but also allowing me to bring great value to Calian's client(s). I would highly recommend Kal and Calian to anyone looking for a great professional experience on a very personal level. You are not just a number at Calian.

    Calian, Computer Application Support Specialist

  • Since joining the Calian Company in 2015, I have received outstanding support and placement by Cathy, an extremely dedicated and highly professional Senior Recruiter at Calian. Her proactive approach, exceptional inter-personal skills, coupled with an absolute detailed knowledge of all opportunities at Calian, lead me to a great placement in the Leadership, Mentorship and Professional Development field. Calian is a great agency, whose outstanding people are the reason for their company successes. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for outstanding service and a real partnership in job placements.

    Calian, Leadership Development Consultant

  • I have recently had the need to use Calian's services. They were very professional and helpful. I was happily surprised by the amount of time and energy they spent with me while I applied for one of the employment opportunities available on their website. Having used other similar companies in the past, I can honestly say that they have set the bar for client satisfaction much higher!

    Calian, E-Learning Developer

  • I have been working with Calian as an Independent Contractor since 2012. My dealings with the staff have always been cordial and professional. From the recruiting personnel to the contracting and administration support staff, all make the effort to get to know you; and they have been excellent at providing timely information and processing documentation. Overall, it has been a pleasant experience and a good partnership working with Calian.

    Calian, Registered Nurse

  • For me, the job itself is the best part of working for Calian. Working on the base is entirely different from working on the civilian side: you are more focused on your patients and their needs. Also, the people that I work with make me feel at home and comfortable, and the hours are amazing. You can work, and you can live your life. You don't have to live your life around work.

    Calian, Health Service Professional CFB Gagetown
