Executive Search or Head Hunting
What makes a business decide to work with an external partner to carry out an Executive Search or as commonly known a Head Hunt?
Many companies consider Head Hunting purely for Board appointments but this approach is excellent for the niche or confidential vacancy, or when you have exhausted your own channels for recruitment and need help!
We live in a world where there is easy access to so much information and we often assume that the gem of talent we require will be out there actively looking. In reality this is rarely the case. Companies are doing their best to retain and develop their talent and a deep recession has made many people far more cautious. At present there is less movement in the market place than in previous years, but the talent is still being sought!
The candidate you want may be someone who keeps a low profile on social and business media and who is difficult to connect with. Those who are higher profile are not just moved by an email or social media connection.
That is where the external Executive Search Consultant can assist.
With our in-depth industry sector knowledge and exceptionally wide network of contacts that have been established over a number of years we know where and how to reach that hidden talent.
Other Advantages of using an Executive Search business?
An exclusive focused search means that the time frame to interview and appoint can actually be quicker than sourcing yourself or operating with a Consultancy on a contingency basis.
The passive candidate is not ‘on the market’ so there will be less competition because he or she is not being pursued by other companies.
Whether operating at senior or middle management many people like to have a third party they can talk with confidentially
Even when a vacancy is sensitive and confidential the external Executive Search Consultant will ensure the best promotion of your business.
A good Head Hunter is well connected with the credibility to make those calls that will be answered and will lead to a good talent short list
