Meet Nicole, Founder and CEO of Beacon HR. She’s not your neighbourhood HR person. She’s an entrepreneur at heart, disruptive by nature, and out to do HR in an authentic and revolutionary way. Nicole believes the transactional staffing agency model is broken - she knows this because she lived it! After almost 10 years recruiting for fast-growing companies, both as the third party agency and in-house, she dreamed of a better way... Beacon was born in 2017, inspired by her West Coast upbringing.
Why ‘Beacon’? Nicole grew up by the sea in North Vancouver, took the Power Squadron course at age 16, the PADI Scuba Diving course at 22, taught swimming and lifeguarded for years, and she’s overall obsessed with ocean sports and adventuring. Our approach is like a beacon in the bay: A light that guides you. A beacon tells you where to look and where to go. A beacon directs one’s attention and shines light onto the course. A beacon gives a sense of calm and helps you navigate through the storm. That’s us, Beacon.
Meet Keira, Talent, Culture, and Recruitment specialist. There are many reasons we love Keira such as her outstanding customer orientation and the fact that she thrives in the start-up world (because that means she’s scrappy, and we like that). Keira is our spin class loving, entrepreneurial, fast-moving, all-hands on deck growth expert who came to us with a breadth of experience in customer experience and agency recruitment. She holds a degree in Communication from SFU and enjoys long walks on the beach. Kidding, short walks with her Frenchie, Trooper, on the beach.
Meet Nooshin, People, Culture, Growth aficionado. Nooshin joins us with over a decade of kickass HR experiences in a variety of industries but that’s not all that caught our attention. Nooshin has a head for business, she’s progressive and strategic in her approach, and she likes red wine. Yes, we would consider that of equal importance. Nooshin brings a global perspective to the Beacon team having lived in Paris, San Francisco, and Dubai and if that didn’t excite us enough she can complete a rubix cube in less than two minutes. Nooshin studied at the State University of San Francisco and is a Chartered Professional in HR.
Meet Madi, Beacon’s very own Creative Design Dynamo. Madi is storyteller who helps us elevate our clients’ aspirations into drool-worthy employer branding campaigns. Madi creates visual assets and social narratives that get jobseeker's heads turning. Madi is our resident creative soul who loves making things beautiful, unique, and functional. We love this about Madi. Madi is an avid adventurer, transplanting herself from the Canadian Prairies to the best coast -- oops, we mean West Coast. She holds a Diploma in Graphic Design from the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology.
