What is Executive Search?
Executive Search is the process of identifying, managing and placing exceptional senior executives from across the globe. Executive Search Recruiters target senior appointments, focusing on C-suite and board-level hires (such as Presidents, CEO’s, Directors) across both the public and private sectors.
Executive search firms endorse unique methods to locate and attract a plethora of senior professionals, historically referred to as ‘headhunting’. These candidates often represent the most qualified talent in their industry. In addition, executive recruiters have access to ‘passive candidates’ or ‘strategic job hunters’ who are not actively seeking a new position.
Sectors & Industries
A Search Consultant will typically focus on a specific industry and often in a particular region of the world, adding value to clients and candidates as a true specialist within your arena. Working closely with your partners, this specialised genre of recruitment involves working against a detailed brief to source the best person available on the market.
The most elite consultants will work in retained fashion, whereby a small percentage of the fee is paid upfront to engage and commence the search campaign.
