“I just wanted to thank you for your support and your professionalism during my time of searching for a more meaningful role. I appreciate your time, commitment and your honesty!”

“I utilized Barry Milne to find me a [candidate] in Winnipeg and he did an outstanding job. He lined up five people for interviews and they were all very good. Three of them were absolute slam dunks. But the one we hired was the best person I could have asked for. Probably the top [candidate] in the Winnipeg market. I really credit Barry’s ability to connect with [the candidate] as the reason we were able to secure top performer in the market.” – Chris, District VP, Sales

“The relationship my recruiter and I have built over time has led to a smooth recruitment, and an excellent addition to our team. By taking the time to get to know about our business, the culture we are building and the exact skill set of the individual we were seeking, my recruiter was able to target the ideal candidate and encourage him to consider a change. We are very pleased.” – Morgan Johnson, HR, Artis REIT

“I look forward to working again with Barry at The Headhunters either as a candidate or hiring manager in any future search assignments. He builds lasting relationships and partnerships throughout every facet of his work and is not concerned with job placement statistics as so many others are concerned with. Outstanding work, Barry!””

“Barry is the true definition of a Recruitment Professional! Barry spent the time to gain a real understanding of my needs and preferences as a candidate, which was a critical component in making my employment placement a long term success.”

“Even during the slow economic conditions, Barry knows how to steer the right candidates to the right managers resulting in successful matches because he gains a deep knowledge of the needs and capabilities of each party involved through his networking skills and ability to listen.”

“Barry is focused on getting results, but what seemed more important to him is that both the hiring manger and myself felt that we had a real exchange of information and that we were both comfortable with the decision to enter into an employment contract.”
