Employer Testimonials

Success Stories from Employers

Our clients trust us and rely upon our services and hiring advice. We are proud to share some of the feedback they have provided about the quality of our service.

I have now dealt with The Headhunters on three occasions. Two involved a non-profit company and one a municipality. In every case they were effective. Specifically, the engagement process was clear-cut and efficient; their advice was useful; their work was accurate and timely; and the results in every case were good. I would recommend using The Headhunters for executive searches, and will if the occasion arises use them again.

Robert Poirier, Client in Manitoba

I truly enjoyed working with Patti Babyn; she was very dedicated and ensured our company was given the best candidate! The recruitment process turnaround was very fast and we are happy to have Carmen on our team!

Natasha Mitton, Director of Human Resources

Barry [Milne] is a GEM. He listens, is persistent to ensure the ball keeps rolling so you don’t lose qualified candidates. Barry and The Headhunters have placed several great candidates at our company. A great experience working with The Headhunters team!

Chris, Employer in Winnipeg

Well connected with the Saskatchewan and Prairie municipal workplace. Truly professional approach to recruiting. Very happy with the support and solutions.

Laurent M., Client in Saskatchewan

It has been a pleasure working with Danielle at The Headhunters. Each time we utilize her services we receive excellent candidates. I would highly recommend Danielle and her team at The Headhunters.

Barb, Client in British Columbia

Danielle Bragge at The Headhunters was great to work with! We had a tight turnaround and she was able to meet the deadline. She brought exceptional candidates to the table and we successfully hired one who will be amazing for our company.

Diana, Happy Client

We have been working with The Headhunters for over 10 years to get the best talent for our growing company. Tracy Proutt has been incredible to work with, especially during this tight labour market, always having the interests of our organization first. Tracy has enriched our company with the market’s top talent for the role she filled.

President, Winnipeg Manufacturing Company

I had the opportunity to work with The Headhunters during the hiring process for a team of technical services engineers. I had the pleasure to work with Tracy Proutt. The search for the ideal candidates was not easy due to current market conditions and availability of resources in the engineering field, but Tracy was relentless in finding the right candidates [and] the search was successful. Tracy was key during the pre-selection [and] also assisted during brainstorms, providing her insights and previous experience in finding resources with similar requirements. I strongly recommend The Headhunters for recruitment services.

Rene Midence, Winnipeg Employer

The Headhunters worked hard to find an ideal candidate for our recent recruitment of a challenging position to fill. Three months in and we’re very pleased with the hire and The Headhunters’ role in finding and hiring our candidate.

Brian Fergusson, Mayor of White City, Saskatchewan

In the past I was always tentative about using a headhunting agency. However, my experience with The Headhunters has changed that. My first hire for an engineer worked out very well, so I used The Headhunters again when I needed to fill an administrator role, and they delivered a great candidate once again. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.

Happy Client in British Columbia

Good, solid service. Dave is a pro and works his requirements well, which is not easy when working across varying time zones and localities.

Jeremy, Talent Acquisition Manager

The Headhunters has blown other recruitment agencies out of the water. [The recruiter I worked with] displayed professionalism, couth, and an exceptional understanding of our needs. All communication from email to face-to-face meetings has been timely, enthusiastic, and grammatically correct! We will not hesitate to work with The Headhunters again.

Happy Client, Retail Sector, Vancouver

Thank you for the support. It was truly a pleasure working with Cam Macmillan regarding this placement. If I have, or know someone who has a recruitment need, I will not hesitate to send them in your direction.

Jasmyn, Quality Officer

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.

Happy Client in Winnipeg

We have enjoyed a strong partnership. I must stress that our relationship is truly a partnership versus just a typical client-recruiter relationship. Cam Macmillan has worked hard to understand our business.

Happy Client

I have worked with Danielle for several years. She understands my needs, understands my management style, and as a result consistently provides good candidates.

Happy Client in Edmonton

Danielle‘s track record bears testimony to her expertise and success rate within the industry. Over the many years, Danielle has established a reputation for her exceptional people skills, service orientation and incredible closure rate.

Happy Client

Dave Banns always seems to unearth tier-one engineering talent and presents these candidates in a timely manner. Most recently Dave completed some difficult searches. I believe he is one of the top five engineering and technical recruiters in BC and I know he is a ‘go-to’ person for many industrial organizations. It is rare to find an engineering recruiter who can understand the technical requirements of a role and integrate it with the cultural of the organization. The Headhunters are extremely effective at what they do and should be near the top of the list for companies when selecting vendors.

General Manager in British Columbia

Patti Babyn was very professional with her approach and very transparent with the information that she provided about the candidates that she endorsed.

Happy Client in Edmonton

My recruiting needs were met by positive, attentive, and supportive professionals who met all my needs from the start of the process through to the hiring phase.

Happy Client in Edmonton

Dave Banns was very professional. The timing was exactly what we agreed and the feedback and understanding of our company’s needs was outstanding.

Karina, HR Manager

This candidate is a great fit for our company! It was a difficult position to fill and we are so grateful that such a suitable candidate was found.

VP Human Resources, Energy Sector

I have worked with Danielle Bragge as a candidate and as a client. I have been very impressed with her professionalism, her work ethic and her dedication to getting the best outcome for everyone involved. She takes the time to understand the needs and personalities of both parties in order to make the right matches and to ensure the right fit. I recommend The Headhunters to candidates and to organizations alike.

Happy Candidate & Client

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Danielle Bragge and The Headhunters over the past three years. I was introduced to Danielle through a trusted colleague. I quickly came to appreciate her dedicated approach and genuine interest in understanding our organization’s vision, values and culture to determine right-fitting candidates that met our recruitment needs. Thanks to the Headhunters, we have successfully staffed a number of key leadership positions at the Vice-President, Director, and Manager level. Danielle makes a point of staying in contact with her clients following the search and placement to ensure that the candidates are a good fit. I would highly recommend Danielle and The Headhunters to any organization looking to partner with a search firm that will secure the right talent to fill a critical position vacancy.

VP Human Resources, Legal Sector

Your recruitment process is so much more sophisticated than other agencies, I can imagine that your agency will change the way recruitment is done.

Happy Client

Linh really understood what I was looking for and did not try to put ‘close-but-not-quite the right person’ in front of me. She was willing to put her reputation on the line to convince me to look at a candidate. Her strong belief in her candidate showed me that she had given the position and the right fit a lot of thought.

Happy Client in Edmonton

Our candidate is clearly a super cultural fit, and I can already see his wheels turning around how he can implement more efficiencies within our purchasing and logistics process. I want to thank you for your diligence in ensuring that I interviewed him. People are really enjoying his energy, and as I said above, he immediately fit right in!

Happy Client in British Columbia

It has been a pleasure working with Georgia Harper. Two hires done in less than four months: what a success! Georgia really understands our company culture, and the candidates that she puts forward shows this.

Happy Client in Vancouver

I would like to thank you very much for the service The Headhunters provided [my company] in our search for an HR professional. Your follow up has been excellent and the candidates you presented were first class. You have also been very patient as our needs and scope evolved. I would definitely recommend The Headhunters to any employers.


Using The Headhunters for the first time was a fabulous experience for us. They took the time to meet and discuss with us in order to clearly understand our needs and the outcome was fantastic.


I have been extremely impressed with the outstanding service provided by The Headhunters. They will continue to be our recruiter of choice!

CEO in the Energy, Construction & Manufacturing Sector

The Headhunters has consistently demonstrated a commitment to understanding our business, and the specific needs we are attempting to address when recruiting. By making time to listen and appreciate our requirements, we were able to focus our combined energy and effort toward the search, which proved to be most effective.

HR Director

Professional. Highly communicative. Understanding of career goals and employer’s needs. The Headhunters have their hearts and heads in the game of helping professionals find fulfilling positions that suit their career objectives, and helping businesses find employees who suit their corporate culture…absolutely fabulous.

Happy Client

I utilized Barry Milne to find me a candidate in Winnipeg and he did an outstanding job. Three of [the candidates presented] 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 a top performer.

Happy Client in Winnipeg

The entire team at The Headhunters were incredibly friendly and took the time to understand my needs, as a company and as a supervisor. The service was very tailored, and I didn’t feel like ‘just another client.’ Great relationships were built throughout the process which truly says something in that The Headhunters is unique in comparison to other recruitment firms.

Happy Client

The Headhunters’ internal process is amazing. I cannot believe how quick information seems to get to you and you act on it. That alone really makes a customer feel like they matter and what they want is important. Overall this has been a no-stress experience for me and did not consume a great deal of my time; and really that is the bottom line here. Time and no aggravation is what I bought from The Headhunters and they delivered.

Happy Client

How refreshing it was to see quality versus quantity. [The Headhunters] always seem to hit the mark and understand what we are looking for.

Happy Client

Exceptional experience with The Headhunters as a candidate and employer. Georgia Harper and her team are simply the best at what they do – integrity, authenticity and professionalism are the cornerstones to their success.

Paul Parolin, General Manager, J.B. Ellis & Co, Vancouver

The Headhunters group has multiple offices in Canada and caters to a wide range of positions- office, professionals, manufacturing, functional experts, etc. I have had the opportunity to work very closely with them during my tenure as the HR Director at Roquette. The recruiters are sharp, on the ball and very efficient in getting talent in a tight labour market- whether it was the ‘hard to fill’ positions or the common ones, I always had a range of good candidates from across Canada to interview and select. Their psychometric tests helped me understand the personality of the candidates and assess possible fit. The firm was instrumental in filling 20plus roles. I knew I could trust them in finding the right people with the skill set that I was looking for. I would highly recommend them for your staffing needs.

Anu Baldner, HR Director, Roquette Canada, Winnipeg

I really enjoy working with Allison. When she presents candidates, they’re relevant and already vetted for fit. She’s got a great talent for this, and she’s a joy to work with.

Happy Client

The attention to our needs was prompt, efficient, and a strong level of understanding was evident from the start. Timescales were met efficiently and communication was strong. Candidate choice was good, and in fact we elected to hire two candidates instead of one.

Steve, Business Owner

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, HR Professional

Allison Ford and The Headhunters have successfully conducted two searches for my division. Both management positions had unique skill sets that were in short supply in the market. The Headhunters left no stone unturned in looking for the best possible candidates and provided objective and incisive advice throughout the search process. [They] provided stellar service, valuable insight into prospects throughout the recruitment process, and high-quality candidates which led to successful hires. I was impressed and would definitely work with them again.

Marsha, Vice President

I had an exceptional experience with The Headhunters as a candidate and as an employer. The team is simply the best at what they do— integrity, authenticity and professionalism are the cornerstones to their success.
