When to use Executive Search

When to use Executive Search

Are you looking to hire the best available person rather than relying on a few referrals from your own network?

Do you want to search internationally for the right skill set?

Have you made the wrong hire in the position previously?

Are you looking for someone with a very specific and extremely scarce skill set?

Have you been trying to fill a position without success for over 3 months?

Executive Search is most suited to critical leadership roles where hiring the very best business leaders will give companies a competitive advantage in the market place. It is also the best way to identify rare and highly specific technical skills which are in short supply.

The best talent in any organisation is one of its most valuable assets and companies invest extensive time and resources to retain key individuals, these candidates are therefore not actively available on the open market.

The only way to access these candidates is to identify them through traditional Executive Search methods; mapping the market and then proactively approaching / headhunting them from their place of work. Our experience has shown that the majority of candidates we identify, shortlist and who are subsequently hired through Executive Search (up to 85%), would not respond to an advertised job and had not previously been actively considering other opportunities.

By thoroughly researching the market, identifying and proactively approaching every suitable person for a role, Clients can be confident that a comprehensive review of the whole market has been made and that the very best available candidate has been identified when making an offer.

The Executives in Africa Search Process ensures every Executive Search campaign runs to a defined, strict timetable ensuring a prompt, controlled, and where necessary, confidential solution to the requirement, with guaranteed delivery of quality results.
