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 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.

Our own consultants are all experienced in the sectors they serve, but we give excellent training to make sure they fully understand the demands of the positions being advertised.

The county town of Buckinghamshire is Buckingham, right? Wrong. It's actually Aylesbury, a town about as close to the centre of the county as it's possible to be. It is roughly in the centre of a circle formed by London 33 miles (53 km) to the south east, Stevenage, Bedford, Northampton, Banbury, Oxford and Slough, going anticlockwise.
The town was traditionally a market town, where the surrounding farms and traders from more distant towns would congregate to sell their wares. Aylesbury still has a market four times a week, but this is by no means its main business. The town did have a strong milling industry until the mid-1800s, and it was the home to some food-related industry until quite recently, but nowadays its main employers are retailers and small businesses, as well as entertainment and the concentration of local government that accompanies any county town. Although Aylesbury was never a formal New Town, it did get redeveloped after the war, with displaced Londoners moving in and the old town being largely demolished to make way for new business properties.
Aylesbury is right in amongst the commuter belt for London, and houses a reasonably economically active population of around 70,000. The north west of the town is dominated by a large industrial estate with light and medium industry, retail and car showrooms. The town's diverse and largely affluent population, modern infrastructure and a decent amount of industry mean that Executive Recruiter jobs are often being created in Aylesbury, so please get in touch if you are in the area and seeking such work.
