Direct and confidential approach to high-caliber professionals working in competitive or relevant organizations. They have relevant roles with a focus of selling client’s mission. The logic of the recruitment process in headhunting is just the opposite compare to the standard selection process, where the focus is on “filtering the weed” and the employers/recruiters are reactive. Here the employing party is the active side. The headhunter proactively searches and offers opportunities to the best professionals in the industry. The focus is on discovering potential sources, identify the right professionals and inspire the chosen candidates via elegant career management. It is by offering them opportunities for change according to their expectations.

When this methodology is applied to top level positions it is called Executive search.  The executive search assignments are delivered by our high-end consultancy practice for strategic talent recruitment – Horizons Executive Search.

Headhunting is an essential recruitment strategy for companies looking to fill top, senior, and middle management positions. This targeted approach is particularly effective in situations where the role requires specific, unique skills or experiences that are not readily available in the general job market. Headhunting is most suitable under the following conditions:

  • Top, Senior, and Middle Management Roles: These positions are crucial for the strategic direction and operational efficiency of an organization. They require candidates with not only the right skill set but also leadership qualities and the ability to drive organizational change.
  • Defined and Unique Skills/Experience: When a job position demands highly specialized skills or a unique blend of experiences that are rare in the job market, headhunting is the most effective way to identify and attract candidates who meet these precise criteria.
  • Defined Sourcing Base: Headhunting works best when there is a clear understanding of where potential candidates are likely to be found. This could be specific industries, companies, or even geographical locations that are known to nurture the talent needed for the role.
  • The Client is Ready to Use This Service: Headhunting requires a commitment from the client, both in terms of time and resources. Clients should be ready to engage in this intensive process, providing clear specifications for the role and support throughout the recruitment process.
