Since the pandemic hit, almost every industry has experienced a turbulent hiring market. The cannabis industry is no exception. While marijuana sales may be surging, it’s likely that businesses have felt an impact on the supply chain front and it's certain they've been struggling to win in the war for talent.

Working with marijuana has yet to be known as a safe and secure career. According to many, however, the industry is filled with opportunities and companies with big goals such as Columbia Care CCHWF, Acreage Holdings ACRHF, and TILT Holdings TLLTF.

One company, however, has made its mission to help lower risk by improving each client’s entire employee experience, from recruiting to onboarding to retention.

Hunter + Esquire is a retained executive search and human capital advisory firm specializing in the cannabis and psychedelics industries. Founded in 2017, the company’s main goal is to assist industry-leading cannabis organizations in breaking through the unique and complex challenges facing the industry. It wants to help its clients attract the best talent out there. Here’s how it’s doing it.

Building Cannabis Careers, Not Just Filling Jobs

Hunter + Esquire offers services extending from the search for a quality executive team to consulting about the complicated ins and outs of the cannabis industry.

Many know that finding the right talent is critical to ensuring the ongoing growth and success of an organization in any industry.

Companies working in cannabis, however, face additional challenges. Several executive positions in the marijuana industry are newly created roles, and many companies struggle to find top talent because of the lack of a previous reference point.

Hunter + Esquire boasts a well-versed executive search team with knowledge in the many complex nuances of finding talent to help organizations curate exceptional teams and offers various services that support its clients in building and maintaining strong, sustainable teams.

“From middle-management to C-Suite and Board of Advisors, Hunter + Esquire partners to fill your leadership gaps with great talent,” said Hunter + Esquire Co-founder and CEO Bryan Passman. “From single roles on an as-needed basis to building entire teams, Hunter + Esquire provides top cannabis industry talent and elevates your organization’s leadership. When your search needs to be confidential and/or you have specific diversity needs, you can trust us. We have filled executive roles for plant-touching, direct support, and ancillary services for cannabis and other nature and science-based medicinal and wellness companies globally.” 

“Having the right people on your Board is equally important as having the right executives as part of your leadership team,” said Passman.

Hunter + Esquire’s mission is to elevate the most aspirational cannabis businesses in the executive-level candidate marketplace by using the company’s expertise in cannabis talent acquisition.

The company imagines a future where the cannabis industry is filled with boundless opportunities for ambitious executive leadership of high integrity and ethics. Hunter + Esquire’s vision is not just to fill jobs, but to build cannabis careers.
