At a very young age, Jocelyn Yacoub knew that she was going to make a difference.

She started her business based on the pure values of people. Flipping the model of executive recruitment on its head, Jocelyn represents both the talent and organizations in order to forge the best placements. She operates on the belief that the candidate is the reason there is a search process, and therefore deserves focus and attention.

Expect nothing less, and accept only the best.

Jocelyn’s vision disrupted the talent search industry, and Yacoub Elite Search was born. With teams in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and Calgary, Jocelyn and Pascale Petit-Gagnon have established a successful executive search firm with mandates spanning Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

Candidates placed by Jocelyn, Pascale and their team have succeeded in their companies and careers, emulating the high calibre, top performer status that has become synonymous with the Yacoub Elite name. Expect nothing less, and accept only the best.

When you build this type of community, with this level of elite service, you set a different standard.

The difference is our people.

Our team of Yacoub Elite Search Experts is a community of inspiring and highly intuitive leaders. We are committed to deeply understanding the talent and organizations we are working with, in order to make high-impact executive placements.
