Paula Cruickshank is a Senior Recruiting Associate at Recruiting in Motion. As an accounting professional, she always knew that she wanted to be in sales. She is a motivated individual who always wanted to make more! She jumped at the opportunity to get into recruiting with a large international recruitment firm and started her career as a recruiter focusing on temporary/contract placements. Paula then re-entered the accounting field for 4 years, and ultimately found her way back to recruiting. Since 2005, she has been focusing all of her efforts on permanent placements, specializing in working with finance/accounting professionals.
Throughout her career Paula has held various accounting-related positions such as a Financial Analyst and an Accounts Payable Supervisor, but she eventually realized that her true passion was in recruiting. The experiences she gathered from those roles, as well as her education, have positioned her to build solid relationships with clients with an understanding of what accounting is all about, and deliver candidates with talent that match their needs.
In Paula’s words: “I am very happy to be part of Recruiting in Motion, and aligning myself with such a great team of experienced recruiters!”.
- Thrills, thrills, thrills… that’s what Paula lives for! As someone who needs to always be busy … there is never a shortage of activities in her life. She has performed a solo skydive from 3,000 feet, and recently completed a tandem skydive from 10,000 feet in Arizona. That is the true definition of “getting high”!
- She has rafted down the Colorado River, and she is planning to kayak with killer whales next year. It is clear that Paula loves to travel, and no matter where she goes, she will always manage to find something exciting and memorable to do.
- Paula also runs 2-4 times a week, all year round, except when it’s raining. She has competed in the Mississauga Marathon for the last 5 years, and has also participated in multiple Sprint Triathlons.
