“I wanted to extend my appreciation and compliments for Azelda Payne. Azelda contacted me a few months ago regarding a search for a client. From the first contact she was extremely professional, personable and helpful. I have received many initial contacts from recruiters in the past and have even been placed into a role previously by a recruiter from a different agency. I must say that Azelda stood out far and above all! The interviewing process spanned over a few months. Not once did Azelda miss a beat. The consistency of her follow up was astounding. I truly felt supported by Azelda at all times– she is a rare breath of fresh air! I can honestly say that I have never dealt with a recruiter as amazing as Azelda. Congratulations to The Headhunters on such an remarkable recruiter. I do hope that I have the opportunity to work with Azelda again in the future.”

“I was looking for an Edmonton operations recruiter and a friend of mine recommended Azelda. It’s a recommendation I’m glad I acted on!”

“Professional, helpful, overall a very good recruiter and service.”

“I am very particular about work ethic and wasn’t sure about paying agency fees. I am 110% satisfied and won’t hesitate to use The Headhunters again. It was easy and saved me time and money! Excellent communication. Definitely a positive experience. I have hired through other agencies, and now I won’t go anywhere else.”
