Third Party Recruitment

Bird Construction has an internal recruitment team. However, in special circumstances, we do partner with third-party recruitment agencies to supplement our internal process. We understand the effort required to source qualified candidates, which is why we carefully select third-party recruiters.

Recruitment agencies shall not contact employees directly to present candidates. Bird will not pay a fee to a third-party recruiter who has not coordinated their recruitment activity with a member of the Bird recruitment team, and who has not received written approval.

If you would like to be considered as a third-party recruiter, please contact the related Human Resources department in your area. Please note that this does not guarantee a contract or agreement.

Recruitment Fraud

Bird has become aware that fraudulent offers of employment have been extended to people residing within and outside of Canada. Individuals or organizations sending these false employment offers may request personal information or funds to further the recruitment process with Bird.

Please be aware that Bird will never request money from job seekers, nor request personal information beyond what is required for a résumé. All individuals who are successful in gaining an offer of employment from Bird, are always required to go through a formal recruitment process including an interview with a member of the Bird recruitment team.
