DMA Global Recruiting
Direct Hire is a service to source a candidate who immediately becomes an employee of your business.
This is often referred to as 'permanent', but due to the nature of employment standards regulations, no employment is permanent.
One major difference in this type of employment arrangement (contrary to contract employment) is that the employment relationship continues indefinitely until either party (employer or employee) ends the agreement through resignation or termination.
Contract hire is a service to source a temporary candidate with a specific set of skills and abilities to fulfill a temporary assignment with a company.
This is also known as 'consulting', and falls into temporary work - though the actual schedule of work (hours in a week) are variable.
Depending on the type of agreement, you may be operating as a Personal Service Business (incorporated) or as a temporary employee (sole proprietorship or hourly).
Regardless of the type of contract, rates are all-inclusive, meaning that they may include vacation (as a percentage of hourly rate at 2% per week), termination pay (in lieu of notice and depending on the length of contract and type of contract), as well as a variety of other things.
Payroll is a service to outsource the responsibility of payment of employees. It falls under the section of temporary employment and contracting relationships.
This usually occurs when an employer has a selected candidate, but does not want, or due to rules and regulations cannot, put the candidate on their own payroll.
This service carries all the same traits as a 'contract'.
Independent Sub Contractor is a type of contract or consulting relationship between a recruiting agency and a candidate. The candidate must hold a provincially registered corporation to
qualify for this type of contract.
In addition to the registered corporation, ISCs may be responsible for carrying proof of commercial liability insurance ($2 million), workers compensation benefits (WCB Clearance Letter), have a registered GST number, and depending on the client needs a fidelity bond.
Payment for ISCs is done as a corporate invoice between the agency and the corporation in question which is done monthly. Timesheets authorized by the client are required for payment. Invoices are straight payment, which means that the remittances to Canada Revenue are the responsibility of the candidates corporation, not the agency.
Hourly Contract Agreement is a type of contract or consulting relationship between a recruiting agency and a candidate. The candidate is essentially a temporary employee of the agency.
HCAs are considered insured under the agency's insurance and WCB registrations, and therefore don't have any expenses associated with their relationship.
Payment for HCAs is done as direct deposit to the candidates bank account, weekly on Friday. Timesheets authorized by the client are required for payment. Remittances to Canada Revenue (such as income tax, CPP, EI) are paid directly as a payroll eduction and HCAs are paid the net amount. They are issued a record of employment (ROE) after the end of the contract, and a T4 at the end of the year.

The best way to apply is directly to a job posting either on our website, or through a posting service such as Indeed, Linkedin, and others. This will be sent directly to the Account Executive responsible for that role, and they will follow up with you in due course.
Job postings from DMA are posted on our website at www.dmacanada.com.
In addition to our own website, we post positions on Linkedin for a more direct application system. Internet scrapers such as Indeed also pull our job postings made on both the previous places , so you may also find them there.
Working with a Professional Recruiter should be a positivie experience for everyone - even if you are not successfully placed into an opportunity.
Professional Recruiters work with companies to find the best available people - as such - they are taksed with identifying, screening, interviewing, prepping, and submitting talented professionals like yourself. Because they are working with a paying client, the service of working with a Recruiter as a candidate is free of charge.
It's important that you appreciate the Professional Recruiters limitations in finding you an opportunity is based on the available opportunities in the marketplace, as well as a client's willingness to pay for Recruiting Services. If you are entry-level, common-skilled, or transitioning careers, they may not be able to help you find a position simply because Company's have processes in place for working directly with you under these circumstances, such as their online web submission page.
Also pay attention to whether your Professional Recruiter (or their Firm) has a specialty or focus area. If this is the case, they are FAR more likely to have access to clientele already in that space. If you have a specific set of skills that you're planning using as the predominant qualification for your future roles, it's best to focus your time with that person.
Remember to be open and honest. Professional Recruiters operate best when they know all the moving parts of your search. It's ok to tell them if you're moving forward with opportunities soon - it can provide them with the necessary information to help expedite a search on your behalf.
