You have a problem, we bring the solution
Often, online postings and print advertising generates a high response rate from unsuitable applicants. This just adds to the volume of work and hinders a company from accessing the real candidate pool. Working with an Executive Search firm allows you to concentrate on screening and evaluating, and giving you only the few best to choose from.
Many companies don’t have in-house recruiting teams, and end up taking busy senior managers away from their core jobs, in the belief that this will actually save money. Using a recruiting partner lets your team of professionals focus on their main competencies.
Quality candidates are hard to find. Recruiters are talking to talented people every day and constantly casting their net for new candidates. They have a detailed roadmap to hidden talent sources that can’t be accessed by newspaper ads or the internet. Often the best people simply aren’t looking in the want ads for something new – they’re busy working for your competitors.
The best candidates are often working for competing companies in your own industry, but out of professionalism and caution, would never send a resume to a direct competitor. Recruiters, however, can function as a safe intermediary and guarantee confidentiality.
A professional recruiter will bring advanced skills and resources to the search that most hiring managers and HR managers don’t possess or use rarely. Skills like how to headhunt into competitors or how to approach a passive candidate to qualify them for their receptiveness to looking at a new opportunity.
Generally Executive Search firms are used to frequently working with the same companies, hence they become familiar with their profile, their strategies, their challenges and achievements, their business culture, their expectations and their employees. This enables them to “sell” the company and position to potential candidates more successfully.
