Are you ready to take your talent and business partner scouting skills to the next level?


Join our team


The consultants on our talent acquisition team, who are proud of their virtual and forward-looking approach to their trade, are busy scouting for us across Canada. Team members are developing towards a clear model of service delivery. They are supported in this initiative by a team specializing in the management of programs to acquire the talent we need to improve systems and tools, and to optimize work processes.


Together, we form a passionate, creative and dynamic team with ambitious goals. We work hard to provide managers and candidates with an exceptional experience, to find solutions to complex problems and to help our centres of excellence and company-wide teams achieve strategic priorities.


Here's the impact you'll make and what we'll accomplish together


As a talent acquisition consultant in a market where companies are increasingly grabbing talented candidates, you will put your expertise and innovative approach to good use enabling TELUS to offer its products and services as well as its exceptional Customer Experience.


You are the archetypal go-between. You will find the right balance between the roles of talent scout and talent agent. As a virtual member of your client group, you will use your know-how to guarantee that we have all the talent necessary for now and the future. You clearly understand the recruitment team's role and importance in a broader context so much so that the candidates often think that you yourself are a part of it. Your natural curiosity, extraordinary insight, listening skills and ability to see the big picture inspire confidence in managers and candidates alike. You know what is important to them.


You represent the best of both worlds. Not only do you help candidates and managers, but you also develop strategies to lead projects that will take the company forward.


Here’s how


  • As a business partner, you will strive to fully understand goals, challenges and options related to your client groups, and you will collaborate in researching and implementing solutions
  • As a trusted consultant, you will help recruitment managers develop a customized strategy to attract, find and evaluate applicants
  • Proactively source qualified technicians for TELUS’ delivery teams, identifying the top talent for the role
  • As a TELUS brand ambassador, you will offer candidates a professional, welcoming, informative and balanced experience that reflects our culture of diversity and integration
  • As an influencer looking to the future, you will apply best practices and create new ones, you will adopt new approaches, and you will make simple improvements to the process
  • You will keep abreast of changes and trends in the field and in technologies, then use these observations to develop the practice of talent acquisition and define client group objectives



You’re the missing piece of the puzzle


  • You are bilingual (oral and written)
  • Known for your ability to listen, question, analyze and communicate clearly and simply, you will understand and evaluate the needs of recruitment managers and candidates, and you know how to define expectations
  • Sense of urgency and ability to thrive under pressure; you are results-driven and a go-getter who can work in a time sensitive environment 
  • You have the proactive ability to sense problems and opportunities, analyze facts and data, and develop and implement solutions
  • You know how to confront difficult situations and use your talent as an influencer and negotiator with stakeholders, including executives
  • With an exceptional organizational ability, you show resilience and can adapt to a constantly changing environment
  • You collaborate with others and facilitate their involvement; you support your colleagues and readily highlight their achievements
  • You are a social media buff
  • You have 3 to 5 years of experience in recruiting for a large business
  • You are at ease working mainly by telecommuting
  • You have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent education and/or experience
  • You are a member of the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Canada (CRHA)
