Executive Search Headhunting

Executive Search and Selection Recruitment

If your requirement for new staff is urgent, is focussed on the senior end of the market or working to build a large team, then this is the type of recruitment that may produce the best results. You’ll get direct contact with the most senior staff members in the agency and by tapping into their vast networks, significant experience and professional client handling approach, you’re more likely to get the resource you require.

You’ll normally work with a Senior Manager or Director who has many years of recruiting within your sector. They will have been working with candidates who have now become senior themselves and will be ideal for your role. Recruiters at this level are most likely to have a large volume of passive candidates, those candidates who aren’t ‘on the market’ but will be open to moving and having a conversation about the ideal opportunity.


How do you structure a digital team?

This all depends on whether you are building a team from scratch within an existing business that falls within digital transformation or whether you have some existing staff in an existing digital environment. In our experience you should ensure that you have a senior staff member installed as part of that team who will help with the process of recruiting the team. Some business can make the mistake of hiring junior staff members first, in order to get digital activity underway, only to recruit a senior hire who wants to build their own team and create their structure.

There are many different facets to building a team, from brand to direct response, from creative to technical or analytics to PR. In the first instance its essential to ensure the digital assets you create are fit for purpose, then they can be marketed effectively to deliver the service you intend. Having an all-rounder to build smaller teams might be better than hiring specialists who have been siloed into one role. As organisations grow, they can then hire specialists that focus on particular areas and help scale the organisation. The key is to plan it effectively and consider a consultant to help get the plan right from the offset.
