This headhunting approach is what separates Manila Recruitment from the rest!

Recruitment of Various Technology and Financial Roles

 

“We turned to Manila Recruitment due to previous difficulties in finding consistently high quality talent for our services team supporting our global client base on our investment management solutions. 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.”

Senior Manager, a NASDAQ Listed Multinational Software Corporation (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’.”

FAQS

Why do you require 30 days' exclusivity?

Answer:
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 1.75 months total gross earnings really competitive?

Answer

Yes, it is below industry average. With the usual range for recruitment firms in the Philippines falling between 18% to 20% of 13 months (between 2.34 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!
