Manila Recruitment has become known as the “go-to” recruitment firm in the Philippines for delivering the “needle in a haystack” and “best in class” candidates.

Especially when you need to hire a technical expert in a specialized industry or profession. We have the expertise, track record and the specialized headhunters to solve your expert and technical recruitment needs in Manila!

Our recruitment consultants are a special breed! They “live and breathe” our clients’ most specialized recruitment needs. They become deeply immersed in the required industries and skill sets, and forge relationships to multiply their network of referrers and candidates for their entire career.

Every technical recruiter at Manila Recruitment is a business professional who contributes ideas, advice and network connections to their highly specialized communities of experts. They are visible at events, in forums and community programs. They forge long-lasting relationships with the candidates you wish to target.

Recruiting for technical and expert talent in Manila requires a different approach. Posting advertisements to classified sites and job portals does not produce high-caliber results. Instead, our technical recruiters use talent mapping and deep-search techniques to identify highly targeted candidates within the top, target companies. They present your opportunity to these candidates who cannot be reached or identified by standard recruitment techniques and advertising. This pure headhunting approach is what separates Manila Recruitment from the rest!

Key Search Terms

  • Initial Fee
    To start recruiting now, pay an initial fee of Php25,000. Pay online now, deducted later from our competitive success fee. Only one initial fee needs to be paid for between 4 to 10 named positions amongst all service categories (except Executive Search and Expat Search), which must be purchased separately. One lower initial fee saves you on upfront costs compared to paying individual fees for 4 or more positions.
  • Success Fee
    The success fee is only billed after hire, and is calculated based upon the service category each hired position fits into: 1.5 months gross earnings per junior candidate hired (equivalent to 12.5% of a 12 month salary). 1.75 months gross earnings per expert (non-technical, non-managerial) candidate hired (equivalent to 14.58% of a 12 month salary). 2 months gross earnings per IT candidate hired (equivalent to 16.66% of a 12 month salary). 2.25 months gross earnings per managerial / executive / expat candidate hired (equivalent to 18.75% of a 12 month salary)

  • Free Replacement

Recruitment of Accountants with Australian Experience
When our BPO’s HR department was unable to find us candidates to interview who had the right qualifications we turned to Manila Recruitment to assist us with finding candidates.  Within a few weeks we had three qualified candidates to interview, all with excellent experience.   In fact we almost hired two of them, but in the end did settle for the one candidate who best suited our team culture.  The process was simple and straightforward and we were kept informed at all steps along the way on the progress of their searches.   I would highly recommend Manila Recruitment for professional support in finding the right candidate with both the right skills and personality.

I can thoroughly recommend Manila Recruitment as an excellent way forward for anyone considering establishing a whole team or for filling highly technical roles in the Philippines.

Team Search FAQs

Why do you require 30days' 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 2.0 months total gross earnings really competitive?

Answer
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!
