Executive Search - An overview
Executive Search is one of the key global professional services, which maintains international code of conduct. The processes involves searches for the senior executives ‘crème-de-la-crème” i.e the candidates are professional experts with rich experience and mostly are amongst those, who are not necessarily seeking a job change. Hence it requires clear understanding of clients' business needs as well as their culture, organizational structure & long term objectives to identify the “right fit”.
An extensive research, professional connections & business referrals are the keys to identify, reach & assess a universe of competent candidates. The executive search industry is continually evolving and the increasing global nature of the business aligned to the quantum leap in technology, has meant that anyone involved in this sector has to be aware of its processes.
In retained executive search, consultants endeavour to provide qualified candidates for clients who wish to fill senior-level positions. Although contractual obligations exist only between the search firm and client, search consultants also build professional and ethical relationships with candidates, whom they may remain in contact with over a period of years.
