Recruitment and Executive Search

Executive Search Vs Recruitment

An organisation may appoint an executive search firm or a recruiter when they are looking to make a new hire. The organisation may lack the resources necessary to advertise, screen, contact and shortlist candidates for interview. Alternatively,  their talent management function might have struggled to identify suitable candidates, or they don’t have the capacity to complete the search. In either scenario, the organisation may decide to reach out to an executive search firm or recruiter to fill the vacancy. However, several key differences should be considered when determining which to appoint.
