You might have seen ads in the newspapers from recruiters advertising every imaginable type of job. The Internet is packed full of positions listed recruitment agencies. However there’s a process of recruitment which is more specialised and more powerful than simply advertising.
The term Executive Search is widely used to describe the activity of recruitment agencies, however it more correctly refers to a very specific recruitment process. One which involves methodical analysis, planning and research in order to develop target lists of candidates who represent the best executive talent for a particular position. The power of Executive Search lies in its capacity to identify all of the talent relevant to a specific role – not just those who are actively looking for work by applying to ads.
In-depth Clients Briefs, Research-based Market Mapping, Headhunting and a highly consultative approach to the recruitment process, are all hallmarks of a reputable Executive Search firm.
