Executive search can be a valuable recruitment tool. Think of it as an investment in the quality of the talent you’ll be attracting. Combining executive search with other options in your recruitment toolkit can support a robust and effective recruitment process. As the name suggests, it is particularly effective when recruiting for executive and senior positions. So how can you make the most of this valuable recruitment tool?
What is executive search?
Essentially, executive search is a process of identifying people with the skills and experience you are looking for and inviting them to apply for the position. Although anyone can undertake this process, it is not something that many employers take the time to do. Why not let us help? We conduct executive search for clients all the time, which means that we can efficiently identify suitable candidates. We also have strong professional networks that can help us to find the best people in any industry.
Why use executive search?
Executive search is an investment in the quality of your talent pool. Rather than hoping that the right people see your job advertisement, executive search takes the opportunity to them. Although executive search can be used as a stand alone tool, it is an excellent tool to combine with advertising vacancies. When you partner with SULLIVAN Consulting, we often recommend that you include executive search as part of your recruitment strategy. Why? Because we have the search experience to find the best talent. Executive search is sometimes an under-utilised tool. Therefore, using it well can give you an edge. It is also a versatile recruitment tool that we can easily tailor to your budget and objectives.
Making the most of executive search
Good executive search starts with a clear objective, budget and parameters. What are you looking for in an ideal candidate? How many candidates do you want to approach? How does executive search fit into your broader recruitment timeline? The answers to these questions can help you determine the best approach for your circumstances. We are always happy to discuss your executive search needs, so feel free to ask.
