Leading Edge Executive Search understands the increasing challenges that come with hiring an effective headhunter in the Philippines. After all, we have had the privilege of being both a client and a search professional.

Smart retention starts with a good hire. Hire for fit. Retention is not what you do when the employee resigns, it begins in the interview. 

Our strength is beyond fulfilling a requisition. We strive to partner with our clients in the full cycle of our engagement. This is with the mindset of a Consultant. More than just the technical fit of our candidates, we probe into their motivational and cultural fit. This way, we ensure our clients and our candidates are mutually and strategically aligned. 

Likewise, our collective experiences as recruiters and headhunters, search professionals and corporate hiring leaders, developed in us a better understanding of how to partner with our clients. We offer targeted, consultative and timely approaches in client servicing.
