Background of Executive Search & Selection in Philippines

Executive search and selection (ESS) is crucial in the competitive landscape of the Philippines. Great candidates do not get recruited easily as a way to gain the interest of these attractive talents. Your people influence your culture. You need an executive search and selection specialist in the Philippines to strategize, source and search to ensure you get the best talents in your organisation. Having a recruitment partner that has market insights can help expedite this executive search and placement process.

Why ESS is an important hiring strategy in the Philippines?

Many of the world’s most competitive talents come from the Philippines. Being one of the world’s fastest growing economies fueled by a strong domestic market, companies entering its local market can leverage on our impeccable talents to raise the level playing ground in the land of opportunities. 

The grab for skilled Filipino executives and talents to be placed in managerial roles are looking increasingly common. Other than local companies, international organisations agree and identify with the Philippine’s competitive talent search outlook and naturally want to select and recruit the best talents to work for them. 

Equally, it is an important process to find more sophisticated ways to attract and retain these talents and to increase productivity of the company. At EPS Philippines, we provide the best candidates onshore and offshore, in or out of the Philippines.

Benefits of EPS' Executive Search & Selection service

Internal Candidates’ Database

With a database built over two & a half decades, we pride ourselves on being comprehensive, holistic and extensive. We constantly stay engaged with active and qualified candidates to update resumes into our internal database. Based on keyword searches, we are able to quickly identify these executives, select and match against clients’ staffing requirements. This will result in a faster hiring turnaround time which supports our service standards.​

Unique Search Team

In addition to having extensive industry knowledge, our search consultants are also well versed in different languages such as English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French and German. Our language proficiencies allow us to build rapport with a wider candidates’ pool of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds.


Head-hunting is a specialized executive search model where we cold-call targeted candidates to share new opportunities for consideration on possible employment with our client organizations. As these targeted candidates usually hold senior-level appointments, they may not be actively looking for a job; it is important that our search consultants can communicate in the most professional and discreet manner to protect their interest and that of our clients’ business interests. Thanks to our regional network, we are able to provide cross-border search assignments and work with candidates from different backgrounds & nationalities.

Powerful External Search Engines

We subscribed to market leading tools and applications which will allow us to expand our search for suitably qualified executives. Based on our client’s specified criteria, we are able to kick off our professional selection process where we get granted access to executive talents from specified regions and countries to match closely against the staffing requirements.

Search Consultants and Referral Contacts

Over the years, our search consultants have built up their own professional and personal contacts in the specific industries which they specialize and operate in. They are able to harness their network of contacts to select or be introduced to suitable candidates. In addition, many of our candidates whom we have placed into client organizations have also become our friends and we sometimes use their referral contacts to reach out to more candidates from targeted industries from roles/assignments given.
