Essence Recruitment

After working with international corporations, founder Tracy Arno followed her dreams of helping people with a personalized approach. Being in leadership roles enabled her to take the next step in becoming the entrepreneur she always wanted to be and began the journey of opening her own firm providing executive recruitment Canada wide, focusing on the FIT and CULTURE with her VALUES of Respect(ful), Integrity, Diversity, Community, and Quality. With Saskatoon booming and companies throughout Canada looking to grow their leadership teams, it was the perfect time to launch.
