Cebu Recruitment, Headhunters for:

IT Recruitment, Executive Search and all Specialized Roles in Visayas and Mindanao

Founded in 2010, initially as Manila Recruitment, our executive search and headhunting firm quickly branched out into servicing other regions in the Philippines.

Cebu has long been our second largest market, and over the years we have developed an unrivalled database of candidates for specialized roles who trust us with their career moves.

ceburecruitment.com has become the go-to headhunting and executive search firm to find needle in the haystack candidates for roles based in Cebu and across the whole Visayas and Mindanao regions (Vis-Min). The market for highly skilled talent has become increasingly sophisticated in the last few years as companies establish larger operations out of the congested Metro Manila area to develop talent in regional offices across the Philippines.

As the market for recruitment services in Cebu becomes more sophisticated, we are being engaged by more companies to find specialized candidates for their executive recruitment needs, IT and software recruitment needs, as well as their management recruitment needs in Cebu and Mindanao.

These regions traditionally started developing mass recruitment requirements several years ago when the BPO companies began to open facilities in key cities such as Cebu, Iloilo, Bacolod, Davao, and Cagayan De Oro. More recently we have seen IT recruitment and technical recruitment in Cebu grow as hiring for software developers comes into higher demand across the Visayas and Mindanao regions. Furthermore, executive search and recruitment for managers (managerial recruitment) has also been in high demand as regional and multinational corporations establish headquarter operations in Cebu and other key cities to service the Vis-min region.

As professional headhunters in Cebu, we have noticed that the days of placing a simple job board advertisement and receiving tons of qualified replies from candidates are gone.

The active candidate market (those who are actively applying for jobs with employers) has largely dried up, and accordingly, the war to recruit and retain quality talent in the Cebu is now fought more fiercely. New market entrants and domestic companies alike, no longer have the luxury of quality candidates applying en-mass to their job postings. The majority of the top executives, managers and IT staff and software developers in Cebu are already employed, are earning strong salaries and are receiving competitive benefits and bonuses. This means there are not many on the job boards anymore. Therefore, a new approach has to be taken!

At Cebu Recruitment we have your specialized recruitment needs covered. Our team of highly trained, professional headhunters has access to our database of over 100,000 executives, managers, experts. software developers and IT specialists in Cebu, the Visayas, and Mindanao. Additionally, each of our recruiters is internationally trained and certified in the latest passive talent sourcing strategies and online tools for headhunters. All of our training has been especially adapted to sourcing talent within the Filipino job market. Each recruiter is also highly networked within the communities of professionals from which they source talent from. They operate and participate in community outreach programs where they provide free career advice to professionals at networking events, via blogs, social media, and personal consultations. For this reason, our headhunters are not just viewed as people who “poach’ from their industry specialization, but rather they are viewed as active community participants. This means, that when we pick up the phone to call the top, passive candidates or network multipliers for our clients, job candidates answer the phone, and we get results for you.

Our passive talent sourcing capabilities, combined with our commitment to innovation in headhunting methodology and technology, ensures we can reach a further 70% of the market for candidates than other recruitment firms or internal HR teams, who traditionally rely heavily on job boards and LinkedIn. When you add our unique understanding of bigger picture business drivers and our deeply consultative, relationship driven approach, we can ensure to fill your toughest recruitment needs in Cebu, the Visayas and Mindanao (Vis-Min).

Each service has a transparent, unique and competitive fee structure and terms, and is delivered by a certified, experienced headhunter based in Philippines
