Thoughts from Employers and Job Seekers
Jacqueline Johns is a pleasure to work with. She keeps constant communication, is open-minded and doesn’t stop until she gets the job done. [She is] constantly trying to understand the role expectations and organization so she finds the best fit for our positions.
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.
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.
Good, solid service. Dave is a pro and works his requirements well, which is not easy when working across varying time zones and localities.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
I have worked with Danielle for several years. She understands my needs, understands my management style, and as a result consistently provides good candidates.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Patti Babyn was very professional with her approach and very transparent with the information that she provided about the candidates that she endorsed.
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 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.
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.
Dave Banns was very professional. The timing was exactly what we agreed and the feedback and understanding of our company’s needs was outstanding.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Your recruitment process is so much more sophisticated than other agencies, I can imagine that your agency will change the way recruitment is done.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
We had a very good experience working with The Headhunters. Jacqueline Johns was very quick to respond to all inquiries and worked quickly to bring suitable candidates forward. She was very thorough and easy to work with while being professional and knowledgeable. Would recommend using them.
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.
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.
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.
How refreshing it was to see quality versus quantity. [The Headhunters] always seem to hit the mark and understand what we are looking for.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
