It’s certainly a valid question to find out why employers should engage and pay executive search firms.
The simple reason is that the “right person for the job” can make or break a business. At an executive level, you simply can’t gamble with an average recruitment process.
Here are a few more reasons below:
We’re good at what we do, so we’re fast and efficient. By ensuring that employers interview only the most qualified, vetted candidates, we free them up to focus on more valuable business needs.
We never advertise roles. Instead, we have dedicated, experienced head-hunters who painstakingly engage our database and prospective “passive” candidates one-by-one with carefully curated conversations that dials up the employer value proposition, suitability for the role and important areas of strengths.
