Listen. Place. Care.

You deserve a recruiting team that cares

Global Presence, Hometown Feel

Back in 2010, founder Michelle Baker had a vision to change how businesses approached hiring. She knew that taking a relationship-centred approach to talent acquisition, where listening and care were at the heart of the business, would make all the difference. And it has!

Now, Swoon is growing quickly across the globe, but we’re focused on connecting even more with our local clients and communities. Our commitment to building strong relationships remains the same.

So, if you’re ready to take the next step in your career or build up your team with talented individuals, we’re here to listen and place with care.

Meet Swoon

Swoon is one of the fastest-growing talent and consulting firms with an expanding client roster of Fortune 1000 companies, Best-of Awards, and legions of talented professionals in our network.

Founded by industry leaders with 100+ years of combined experience, we are devoted to creating a diverse and inclusive environment for not only our in-house team but our clients’ teams as well. Plus, we’re committed to making the hiring process enjoyable along the way!

Our Values & Culture

All-Star Standard

We believe in giving 110% to every client and every candidate, every time.

Inclusion & Diversity

We’re committed to creating inclusive environments where everyone can be themselves. 

Training and Development

We invest in our team with the time, energy, and resources they need to fuel their growth.  


We take accountability for our actions and are direct and honest in our communication with clients, candidates, and our own team. 


Giving back to our communities and those in need fuels our motivation to work hard and make a difference.


Embracing new ideas, coming up with innovative solutions, and listening to the needs of our clients and candidates are essential.


We’re committed to continuous improvement. We’re always examining how we could make our process better for everyone.


Teamwork will get us farther than individual efforts ever will, so we always lean into supporting and learning from one another.   


We’re people, helping people find their people, so we’re all about putting care and relationships at the centre of our work. 

Commitment to Community

Swoon aspires to impact everyone we meet along our journey positively: our employees, candidates, partners, and communities. 

From team volunteer days to attending charity events to collaborating with great partners, we love being able to give back to our local communities with both time and resources.

Working with organizations like La Red de Hispanos (pictured here), Girls in Tech Toronto, and Black Professionals in Tech Network is one of the best parts of our job. We work to bring useful resources and networking tips to job hunters and leaders alike and hope to expand to even more great organizations in the future.
