Client Testimonials

Recruitment of an Offshore Development Team of Node.js Developers, Front-end Developers, UI Designers, and various Software Roles

My name is David and I head the Manila-based operations for a rapidly growing digital marketing company called iStack Holdings. I flew to the Philippines with the goal of setting up an offshore development team to help us grow our company. I wanted talented designers and developers - the best, not just anyone.

I quickly realised that the quality of candidates/hires I acquired through Manila Recruitment / Cebu Recruitment made it an extremely easy decision to stop attempting it myself, and this saved me more time than I can imagine.

I now have used them exclusively and they have helped us grow our software development operations in the Philippines rapidly from nothing to almost 30 talented staff in about 18 months. These staff have been indispensable in our company's growth and success - people who we depend on and trust with high value international software work, not generic BPO staff.

If you would like to find the right staff in the Philippines, especially in the areas of technology/development, you won't find safer hands than Manila Recruitment / Cebu Recruitment. I firmly recommend you invest in their services.

David Savory
Head of Operations, Manila, iStack Holdings Limited

"We turned to Manila Recruitment / Cebu Recruitment due to previous difficulties in finding consistently high quality talent for our offshore services team supporting our global client base for our investment management solutions. Manila Recruitment / Cebu Recruitment accepted the challenge and quickly got involved in learning our business and understanding the quite challenging profiles we were looking for. Now a few months on, we’ve hired several talented people who fit our profile very well and we plan to retain this important relationship to source talent in the Philippines through the great services of Manila Recruitment / Cebu Recruitment. I’ve found Manila Recruitment very easy to work with and I really appreciate the level of involvement, advice and transparency they’ve shown throughout."
