  • How long does it take to complete the search?
    We complete search assignments in 5-6 working weeks; however, this time frame may be extended depending on the complexity of the search, job location, and talent scarcity.
  • What is the difference between executive search and recruitment?
    Executive search and recruitment are often used interchangeably, however, there are a few differences when it comes to business models and pricing, type of assigned positions, and search process. - Recruiters usually follow contingent pricing models and executive search companies follow a retained pricing model. - Executive search companies focus on filling senior and top-level positions, while recruiters advertise open positions through online job portals, newspapers, and social media platforms. - Executive search firms usually contact potential candidates directly, identifying them through market mapping and deep networks.
  • What are executive search services?
    Executive search is a specialized type of recruitment. Retained search involves an upfront fee and may result in higher overall pricing. As a result, retained search is frequently linked with senior-level roles like board members and CEOs.
