Nothing makes us happier than successfully placing a candidate in their ideal job. Here are some of their thoughts:
Barry Milne and The Headhunters ensured an amazing experience. Barry was always the consummate professional as he assessed my credentials during our initial screening interview; but more importantly, he recognized that I was on an extremely tight timeline to consider the opportunity. He quickly made some calls and within moments he arranged meetings with HR, the branch manager and vice president of the location I was interested in, and the managing director of the hiring company. Barry kept in touch the whole time to make sure the process kept moving forward. Barry, I’m eternally grateful.
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.
Barry is focused on getting results, but what seemed more important to him is that both the hiring manager 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.
I had a wonderful experience working with Linh, she was very knowledgeable about the industry, and she seemed very committed and dedicated to me and her job. By understanding my needs and wants in an organization, Linh made finding me a job hassle free. It was a very positive experience, and I always recommend The Headhunters whenever I have the chance!
You are thorough professionals. Patti, thank you for giving me this opportunity and assisting me in my job search… you are an awesome and amazing person.
Being from out of town Ann has been a huge help in finding me employment opportunities in Vancouver. I’ve been impressed with her commitment and communication from day one. I feel that she is very much in my corner for my work search, she’s extremely professional and I would definitely recommend her.
Georgia Harper was exceptional! I was so impressed with her from the get-go; she made me feel very well informed and comfortable. I have since recommended her to all my friends and family, and I hope it will give her some new business. I’d like to thank Georgia for helping me out and will always look forward to working with her again.
Patti Babyn was so professional and personable and I really felt she had my best interests at heart throughout the process and beyond.
One of the key highlights that really made this organization stand out is the assessment approach. It’s been a real pleasure to be a part of a very human process as opposed to the superficial “screening” standard that so many recruiters out there take in today’s employment market.
Working with The Headhunters has been an exceptional experience for me as a candidate. Understanding that a recruitment firm needs to serve its clients first and foremost, as they are who pay the fees, after all, it was even more satisfying and gratifying to see how well I was treated, respected and nurtured throughout the process as a candidate. The professionalism, clarity and symbiotic nature of The Headhunters’ approach to fitting clients with candidates was exemplary, and what impressed me the most in the process was the integrity with which it was done. Everyone I spoke with and worked with at the company was top notch, enthusiastic and helpful.
The Headhunters was a happy accident. A friend referred me and it was an instant success. I appreciate the professionalism given to my situation of leaving a 18 year job and having never interviewed for other jobs in that 18 years. Cam understood my apprehension and kept things extremely confidential. Thank you to The Headhunters for helping me transition into a new company.
Cam knew the companies in my field that were hiring in Edmonton. I could not have asked for an easier transition into a more challenging, rewarding role.
Jacqueline Johns was amazing and worked her magic to find me a challenging and exciting role that I didn’t even realize how good a fit would be for me. She is one of a kind! So grateful.
Working with Ann has been a real pleasure! From day-one I have been impressed by her professionalism and her eye for detail. There aren’t many Vancouver recruiters who can offer what Ann does!
Dave was excellent and constantly kept me in the loop. In addition, I reached out to Dave several times for his council, insight and to strategize with respect to interviews, etc. Also, what was really nice was that when I left him a message he always got back to me right away. He was great on many levels and I now understand fully why my boss reaches out to him.
I appreciate Danielle so much. She has placed me at my last three career moves and always makes me feel like she believes in me. She never limits me and always takes the time to listen to my needs. Thank you once again from the bottom of my heart.
I would highly recommend Linh Lieu at The Headhunters Recruitment to anyone looking for work. She was extremely helpful, professional and assisted me in getting a really great opportunity. She helped to place me in a position that was a perfect fit for my skills and qualifications, with her assisting and supporting me through every step of the hiring journey. She touches base with me frequently. Her positive and friendly personality is great to work with.
During my job hunt, I was reached out to by a number of recruiting agencies. The Headhunters were by far the best of these that I interacted with. They were incredibly professional and I felt went above and beyond as far as trying to find me a role that I was a good fit for. As far as how the job is going, I’m now several months in and it’s the best working experience I’ve ever had. I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with The Headhunters and to now be working in my new position. I greatly appreciate all that The Headhunters has done to help me reach where I now am in life.
I had the best experience working with Tracy Proutt. She understood my goals and helped get me to where I am now! Would highly recommend working with her as it was an amazing experience! I am so happy with my new position and wouldn’t have been able to get here without the help and encouragement of Tracy! She was amazing and made this experience so easy to be able to find my dream job!
Allison Ford is by far is the best recruiter I’ve ever worked with! While this was my first time using The Headhunters, I’ve lost count of the number of recruiters I’ve worked with in the past—enough to know that they’re not all cut from the same cloth. Allison was always friendly and prompt with communication. She was also transparent throughout the process while offering tips or advice for each step of the way. And when it came down to a competitive offer situation, I truly appreciated her support in determining the best fit for me, even though it meant possibly losing out on commission for her. In the end, I went with the role she recruited me for and her follow up check-in my first week on the job was a welcomed touch. I’ve already been sending referrals to Allison and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the rest of The Headhunters team if this is the standards they hold themselves to.
Georgia took the time to get to know me and my interests. An opportunity was presented and she felt that I would be a good fit, using her judgment and analyzing my strengths based on my approach with people. The coaching, support and communication that came with the experience was excellent. I am very happy with my new career thanks to Georgia.
Jacqueline Johns is a force to be reckoned with. Her professionalism and ability to match [candidates] to prospective employers is a talent in itself. I am so thrilled to be in my new role, which would not have been possible without Jacque. Thank you!
Patti Babyn was very professional and always gave me great pointers for all of my interviews. She was great to work with, I always felt that she was looking out for my best interest, not just filling a position, but finding the best fit for me as well as for the company she was working with. I’m now at a permanent role that she helped me find.
My experience with Patti Babyn at The Headhunters was amazing. She was very personable and I really felt like she cared about me and my career goals. She provided excellent coaching and was a fantastic support for me. If I had any questions, she was always available. The service was top notch!
Georgia really was able to get to know me and gain a better understanding of what I am looking for next in my career. I have had many conversations over the past year with many others, and would consider this one my favourite of them all.
I gave Georgia Harper a rather challenging wishlist and I’m not sure how, but she has managed to secure me a placement that checks every single one of my boxes! I couldn’t be more excited to start my new job.
I have always felt comfortable with The Headhunters staff. They are professional, honest and do not place people just to make a buck. This is my second placement through The Headhunters and both have been very positive experiences.
My experience with Linh Lieu at The Headhunters, was wonderful. I really appreciated the fact that she took the time to sit down with me and asked me to list what I was looking for in a new employer. I expected a few of [the] criteria not to be met, but Linh found the perfect position and she checked off everything on my list! Linh found this position two weeks from the first day I met her… amazing! I appreciate that she worked fast, yet catered to my needs at the same time. Thank you, Linh, for all your help, I am very happy with my new position, and I am off to a great start.
Barry Milne is the true definition of a Recruitment Professional! He 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.
It is not often that an opportunity you get is greater than the job presented to you. Never in my career have I had a role that fit better or an organization whose values so closely reflect my own. I was able to hit the ground running and provided value (and learned from the job) within the first week.
I wanted to thank you so much for your help with my job search. I secured a fabulous role… It’s exactly what I was looking for and I’m so excited to start! I have worked with a number of recruiters throughout my career, and your firm was easily the best. I have recommended The Headhunters to other companies who I know are looking for [employees].
The Headhunters was a happy accident. A friend referred me and it was an instant success. I appreciate the professionalism given to my situation of leaving an 18-year job and having never interviewed for other jobs in that 18 years. Cam Macmillan understood my apprehension and kept things extremely confidential. Thank you to The Headhunters for helping me transition into a new company.
My job search with The Headhunters went flawlessly. The stress in trying to find a new job was eliminated.
I just want to say that I have never been happier in my career. The job is great and the culture at [my new company] is second to none. I can’t thank you enough for your support in my career pursuit. This has been the best career decision I have made in my life.
I had a wonderful experience with The Headhunters. They are great people who are willing to help candidates find the right role that matches their skill set. They provide personal orientation before starting an interview process. Great people and great service.
[The Headhunters] provide an extremely friendly, professional and caring service which I feel very lucky to have been party to. They were able to arrange the right opportunity while giving me invaluable guidance and advice with a personal touch. Thanks to them, I now have a great career in a fantastic company with a very prosperous future.
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.
Of all recruiters I have dealt with, The Headhunters and Patti Babyn have by far outdone everyone else. They stay in touch with the candidate until they have found the right job; most recruiters go through the motions but do nothing more.
My experience with The Headhunters and Patti Babyn has been exceptional. The care and attention she put into my questions, needs and wants in a job placement were outstanding. Patti worked with me to reassure and put my mind at ease. She encouraged and put my fears to rest. We talked before and after every interview. I was totally impressed and so appreciative of the support she and The Headhunters provide. Patti continues to follow up with me while I’m at my current placement. I could not be happier with my experience with The Headhunters and Patti.
Linh was incredibly helpful! The Headhunters know people! The turnaround time for obtaining a new job was incredibly fast. I would highly recommend working with this great company.
Allison Ford from the Headhunters is truly one of the most dedicated and professional recruiters that I’ve ever worked with. She took time out of her day to prep me for interviews in person and gave my candidacy a chance even when I didn’t check all the boxes. You are in great hands if you are a candidate working with Allison!
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.
Allison Ford went above and beyond in helping me during the recruitment phase. Communication was easy, friendly and professional. She was able to keep me at ease throughout the many rounds of interviews. Allison picked the ideal job for me and I am delighted to say I was offered and accepted the job through her helpful guidance. I would recommend The Headhunters without a doubt.
What a wonderful experience with The Headhunters finding my new employer. Their workstyle and performance test really helped highlight what I was looking for in my next employer.
Out of all of the headhunters who’ve contacted me recently, The Headhunters Recruitment went above and beyond to ensure success. One of the ways they did this was through insightful questionnaires that let me write about my experience, goals, and unique skills. In my opinion, this is a vital step to ensuring alignment between companies and potential employees. Another plus was getting a video/visual chat with Allison Ford. This is so much better than a phone call because you get to truly present your “professional full-package.” After this, The Headhunters moved quickly and I was presented with an amazing offer from a global software company. Whether you’re a company or a job hunter, I highly recommend The Headhunters Recruitment for a supportive, prompt, and professional hiring process, from start to finish.
The Headhunters Recruitment truly has my highest recommendation. They are the warmest, most professional and extremely knowledgeable recruiters I have ever met and I have been with large notable recruitment firms from across the globe. They really take the initiative to go above and beyond constantly make sure both the employer and employee are well taken care of, all in pursuit of finding the right fit.
Very professional company. Other agencies do not return emails or calls or help you prepare for the interview. The Headhunters did all of this. If you want to partner as a potential employer or employee, this is the company.
Staff and recruiters at The Headhunters Recruitment are very professional and nice. Totally recommended.
Positive & professional! My first experience was very positive. The recruiter took the time to ask questions to determine what I really wanted out of my next job. She always stayed in touch and presented me with an amazing opportunity. Her tips and suggestions were invaluable. I would gladly recommend her and the company to anyone who asks!
Found an employer for me very quickly. Follow up was incredible!
Great recruiting company that does not treat you as a number, rather take the time to get to know you and your personality.
I have been placed for temporary and permanent roles with The Headhunters throughout the last 5 years. They have always been professional and patient in ensuring they pair the right client to candidates. I would highly recommend them because they are experts in their field while staying honest and open with their candidates. Excellent experiences each time!
I am very pleased [with] the whole hiring process. Barry was great! Very professional, and kept communication to the highest standard. I will definitely choose The Headhunters for my future job searches.
I just wanted to thank Barry for your support and professionalism during my time of searching for a more meaningful role. I appreciate your time, commitment and honesty!
Working with The Headhunters to find my new employer was the most uplifting experience of my professional life. The recruiting team was efficient, supportive and helpful right through the process from application through onboarding. I would highly recommend both employers looking to find the best candidate and job seekers to work with this firm. Truly a wonderful company who still understands the human perspective.
I started my job search contacting several agencies and I have to say, by far, The Headhunters is the best. They are welcoming, professional and they take the time to know you better in order to locate you in the right company. Patti, my recruiter, provided me material to prepare for my interview and also called me the day before to prepare me personally. I have only good words for her and The Headhunters team, who by the way, are all kind and helpful, from the reception and up. Thank you, Patti, for helping me get the job I wanted!
Cam knows the Edmonton market place and has incredible connectionss to several industries and HR groups. [The Headhunters] knows the Edmonton and Northern Alberta markets, and who the players are. Connect with their team to find the job you want.
I could not ask for more in my experience with The Headhunters. They called me within a few days of my resume submittal, interviewed me within a few more days, and had an interview set up with the interested company a few days after that. In all, I received a good job offer within two weeks of submitting my resume. I hope I do not have to use a recruitment agency again, but if I do, I will definitely contact The Headhunters. Well done!
Your recruitment process is so much more sophisticated than other agencies, I can imagine that your agency will change the way recruitment is done.
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.
Thank you for all of your help and assistance with finding the ‘right fit’ position for me. From the first meeting to my first day of work I have thoroughly enjoyed the quick placements process with you! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
I can’t recommend Headhunters enough! The Recruitment Consultant aligned my personality, experience, aptitude and preferences with job opportunities, resulting in me signing the dotted line for my dream role. They encouraged me throughout the entire process while also offering constructive tips and tricks, a directness that I feel is missing in most other recruiting firms.
The Headhunters were extremely helpful, quick and found me exactly what I was looking for in my new career. They helped with the whole process from my resume to the interview and I am extremely grateful for their help. I would definitely recommend them if you want to find that right fit in your next career.
