Frequently Asked Questions

What is Executive Search?

Executive search, also known as "headhunting," is a recruitment method used to identify, contact, and hire experts, managers, and/or executives for key positions within an organisation.

Unlike traditional recruitment methods that focus on job postings and reviewing received applications, headhunting involves identifying passive candidates who may not actively be seeking a new job but possess the required skills and experience for the role.

Companies can engage specialised recruitment firms to help them find the best candidates for high-level positions. Headhunters have extensive networks and contacts in various industries, enabling them to discover professionals who may not be accessible through traditional recruitment channels.

What are the differences between executive search and middle management recruitment?

Middle management recruitment and executive search are two different methods. They differ in the nature of the positions they are used for and the approaches used to identify and recruit talents.

Middle management recruitment is used to fill positions for intermediate-level managers in an organisation, such as supervisors or managers who typically link with the General Management. Candidates for these positions are generally recruited through traditional channels such as job advertisements or online job portals.

On the other hand, executive search is used to recruit senior executives and top-level leaders for high-level positions in an organisation (e.g., CEO, HR Director, Sales Director, CFO, CIO). These are experienced and highly qualified professionals who are not actively seeking new opportunities. Headhunters use professional networks to identify and recruit these profiles.

What is the cost of a failed recruitment?

It varies depending on different factors (level of qualification, industry, company size, time the position remained vacant, etc.). Companies can engage an executive search firm to limit the costs of a failed recruitment in several ways:

Consultants have the expertise and experience to find highly qualified profiles that match the specific needs of the company. They utilize their networks and sourcing tools to identify passive job seekers.

The firm handles the entire recruitment process, from candidate search to pre-selection, interviews, reference checks, and contract negotiations. This allows companies to reduce the time and resources needed to find the right candidate.

Headhunters conduct a thorough evaluation of candidates, including their skills, experience, and personality, to ensure they are a perfect fit for the position.

Recruitment firms offer a replacement guarantee if the candidate does not suit the company. This helps companies mitigate the risks associated with a bad hire and limit the costs associated with a failed recruitment.

Firms ensure the confidentiality of the recruitment process.
