Recruitment of Various Roles
“We’ve been using Manila Recruitment’s services for the past 2 years. So far, their team has been able to hire a number of high-performing employees for us, more impressively so in certain specialised areas. Their recruiters are hard working, able to clearly communicate regarding our hiring needs and specifications, constantly updating us on progress and practicing discretion and plain good sense in screening applicants. Their management team has been approachable and hands-on. One of the things we appreciate most about Manila Recruitment is their honesty and straightforwardness – no hidden fees, no faulty promises, what you see is what you get. We’ll definitely continue working with them!”

Operations Manager, Suite Studio, Inc. (Manila)
Recruitment of Start up Development Team
“Manila Recruitment clearly had experience in helping organisations new to the Philippines to get started quickly, find the right talent, and work to tight timeframes. Following Manila Recruitment’s induction to its recruitment philosophy, which was invaluable in managing our own expectations in hiring timelines, time was taken to not only understand the roles we needed filled, but also the urgency and business drivers in hiring the local team. The overall service provided by Manila Recruitment was excellent, with a strong emphasis in using an open and consultative style of engagement to ensure our needs were met. I have no hesitation in recommending Manila Recruitment to any organisation looking for a recruiter that works hard in finding the ‘right people’, instead of simply ‘filling seats’.”
– Dinuke Ranasinghe
CEO, Arcadier Pte. Ltd (Singapore)
Recruitment of Various Technology and Financial Roles

Manila Recruitment accepted the challenge and quickly got involved in learning our business and understanding the quite challenging profiles we were looking for. Now a few months on, we’ve hired a number of talented people who fit our profile very well and we plan to retain this important relationship to source talent to our local team in Manila through the great services of Manila Recruitment. I’ve found Manila Recruitment very easy to work with and really appreciate the level of involvement and transparency they’ve shown throughout.”

We have since used Manila Recruitment for several other positions, including iOS and Android developers as well as a Frontend developer and another PHP developer”. All done with care and understanding of our needs. They also provided business advice on how to establish and maintain our offshore team in Manila.”

Managing Director, Cirrena Pty Ltd (Perth)
Keen to use multiple recruitment agencies and search firms? We co-ordinate with specialist recruiters to save you the hassle of negotiating commission rates, tracking resume submissions, and preventing candidates from having multiple calls from different agents, who often confuse them with inconsistent information. We only work as the exclusive lead recruitment partner (you wouldn’t ask two law firms to draft the same contract for you… would you?).
It’s more effective and more efficient if handled by one highly qualified resource who “lives it and breathes it” through to completion. If a recruiter feels that what they are working on can be pulled out from underneath them at any time, they often don’t put their everything into it. Or they gravitate towards the low-hanging fruit amongst their schedule of recruitment cases.
Working under exclusivity for 30 days, we have eliminated those issues encountered with standard, contingency (multi-agency) relationships. Appointing us under exclusivity allows us to confidently invest into the closest working relationship with you. A true partnership that ensures we have the time to get to know and understand your business and your recruitment needs. We also feel the greatest sense of urgency and ownership over the delivery of each position we are exclusively recruiting for you. This type of relationship and sense of responsibility towards your business can never be matched by traditional, contingency-based (multi-agency) recruitment firms.
Yes, they are all below industry averages. With the usual range for recruitment firms in the Philippines falling between 12% to 20% of 13 months annual compensation (between 1.56 to 2.6 months’ salary), our service is not only the most professional in the city, but it is also priced fairly. We know that in the Philippines it is customary to pay employees 13 months of salary, but we don’t feel it is right to invoice our clients against 13 months of salary!
One or more of our most senior, specialist recruiters will handle your team recruitment drive, from start to finish. An expert with an extensive business network, who will combine talent mapping, headhunting, networking and database technologies to promote your position across our personal and online networks. Discretely targeting only individuals who are a perfect fit for your roles. We never just send you resumes! This is a full-service solution, and you will only ever receive endorsements to fully screened, vetted, qualified and informed candidates, who are ready for final interview with you and your team. You will also receive a weekly status report from your recruiter, keeping you fully informed of the progress and status of the recruitment campaign.
