|Job Hunting Skills (Strategies)|
Doing things differently from other job seekers (i.e. targeting the ‘hidden’ job market). Common thinking is that up to 70% of jobs are never advertised. This may be even higher for CEO / executive roles or ‘highly networked’ industry sectors. Therefore, CEOs / executives must seek to target the ‘hidden’ job market by tapping into existing networks, targeting key influencers and engaging top headhunters. Often, leveraging ‘industry profile’ (reputation), business networks (ecosystem), subject matter expertise (key influencer recognition), top headhunter contacts and LinkedIn (online presence) pays dividends. We can give some useful insights and tactical approaches to leverage opportunities.
|Executive Search and Selection|
It is important to understand the executive search and selection process to identify potential opportunities and manage expectations through the executive recruitment process. Validating which firms are managing specific executive recruitment assignments, targeting high profile roles, benefiting from the influence of Tier 1 executive headhunters and tapping into the ‘executive grapevine’ are other strategies, especially for CEO and board executive roles. Some roles are widely advertised on a national or international basis for attracting a global talent pool, whereas other roles are ‘hidden’ or operate in a strictly confidential manner. Such tier 1 CEO / executive headhunting companies operate in the ‘truest sense of the word’ in terms of ‘being headhunted’.
|Headhunter Engagement Plans|
Selecting the right executive headhunter partner (strategies to maximise opportunities). Benefiting from extended recruiment / employer networks, executive headhunters can play a pivotal role in finding opportunities for CEOs / executives. Relationship building is key, not just for now but over the long-term. We can help validate choice of top headhunters, give advice on building key relationships and offer tactical advice on which opportunities to go for. The best executive headhunters have already built relationships and recruitment networks, so they are in a very good position to influence recruitment decisions of target employers. The important of headhunters must never be under-estimated, though it is important to select the right one’s to partner with.
|Interim Executive Solutions|
Considering interim executive management jobs as a viable alternative to permanent roles. This is often an underplayed area of executive recruitment. For whatever reason, most executives move after two or three years anyway, so interim executive appointments can offer certain advantages for both the employer and employee. Pay scales / daily rates may be higher, employers can ‘buy-in’ specialist expertise for a period of time on a key project / strategic initiative and mitigates risk for both parties rather than employing someone permanently. It is worthwhile considering interim roles, especially if there is a degree of flexibility or an interesting project that appeals. The emergence of speicalist interim executive search and selection companies reinforces this as a viable option.
