ThirdQuarter - recruitment services for experienced workers

We are a national non-profit organization, specializing in recruitment services for mature Canadian job seekers aged 45 and up, who are in the “third quarter” of their careers. 

ThirdQuarter exists to bridge the gap between talented people looking for work and the businesses that need their experience and expertise.

We know that your maturity and experience are assets in today’s workplace. We match the skills required for available positions out there with the qualifications of seasoned applicants like you, to the mutual benefit of both.
