What our clients say about our consumer packaged goods recruiters

I love working with Lock - they find great candidates and make the process easy from start to finish.

Sarah Woods

Henkel Canada, General Manager

I’ve had positive experiences working with Lock - initially as a candidate, advancing my own career, and then as a client. The team works to understand the organization’s needs, points of difference, and to develop a strong collaborative partnership. They know their market intimately.

Graeme Blair

Ferrero, Human Resources Manager

I consider the Lock team an extension of our internal talent teams… they know our culture inside and out, they know the market well and are great sounding boards as we think through approaches to resourcing. Mike and team are particularly agile and great at pivoting, calibrating as we go, and they always persevere to hunt down best possible candidate fit.

Heather Ray

Dave listened to understand what we needed, not just in terms of hard skills but also soft skills, and that has made all the difference in terms of the quality of hires we have gained from Lock Search Group. I recommend them as recruiters without hesitation.

Lock Search Group has consistently delivered top talent for our organization. They are a true business partner that digs deeper to effectively qualify required experience and qualifications, as well as assess fit and potential.
