WHY CHOOSE US?
Our Executive and managerial recruitment consultants have been closely trained by our own executives – the Founders of Manila Recruitment. This ensures they have both the business acumen and headhunting skills required to operate at the executive recruitment level.
In order to attract the top talent to your company, a network orientated or headhunting approach must be taken. That is why we are amongst the most deeply immersed recruitment agency professionals within the Filipino executive community. As a team we are visible, enthusiastic participants in Manila’s executive community. We attend events, participate in forums and other community programs. We are sought out by talented executives and managers for our career advice, and are recognized as knowledgeable contributors to Manila’s business community. We are not simply seen as just headhunters and poachers, and that is why candidates pick up the phone when we call!
Our recruiters are experts at sourcing passive candidates (those not actively seeking work), but who may be interested in the opportunity to work for you if it is presented correctly. We can reach a further 80% of Manila’s executive and management candidate market than recruitment firms who simply post job advertisements and search LinkedIn.
All of our executive level recruiters are internationally certified. They have undergone the leading European training course in the latest tools and techniques available to headhunters. We have adapted their training to the local, Filipino market with unrivalled results for our clients.

Why do you require 30 days' exclusivity?
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.
Is your success fee of 2.25 months total gross earnings really competitive?
Yes, it is below the industry average. We recently surveyed the top 5 Executive Search Firms in Manila. The average success fee charged for Executive Search is 20% of the total gross, annual compensation of the chosen candidate. This is based on the Philippines having a customary 13 months of salary per year. If you annualize our fee of 2.25 months of total gross earnings (across 12 months only, as we don’t feel it is right to charge for a 13th month), it is equal to 18.75% of the annual compensation. Our service is not only the most professional in the city, but it is also priced fairly.
