Executive Recruiter

Executive Recruiter Jobs

Every business needs strength at the top if it is to succeed. Even in a thriving marketplace, a company without synergy and balance at board level can become distracted and misdirected, and can start losing competitive advantage. That’s why it is so important to ensure executives are selected carefully and conscientiously. This is the job of the executive recruiter.

Being at board level themselves, the executive recruiter will be fully appraised of talent pipeline requirements, and will have a strategic handle on potential vacancies six to twelve months in advance of the requirement. Whenever there is expansion, diversification or restructuring, for example, it’s almost inevitable that new executives with the relevant skills will need to be drafted in. The executive recruiter will be responsible for ensuring a smoother transition over the potentially bumpy road ahead by selecting, interviewing and securing the talents of relevant board-level employees.

The skills required

The executive recruiter has specific demands that can be difficult to find. It is often required that you have executive-level experience yourself to better understand the needs of the director and senior manager. At the same time, there will clearly need to be some experience in recruiting and HR to a senior level. Since it’s quite uncommon for these two qualities to be present in the same person, there will always be scope for a talented candidate to take an important step up the career ladder into executive recruitment.

Executive talent pipelines are all about quality, not quantity, so an executive recruiter will need to be part salesperson, selling the benefits of working for the company to ambitious executives with value to the industry. This could involve entertainment outside of office hours and possibly trips abroad if the company is casting its net widely. You will need to have a talent for identifying good executives and honestly assessing their suitability once contact has been made.
