Executive search recruiters will partner with you as an extension of your team and take the time to learn and understand the key areas and deliverables you are trying to achieve within your organization. In addition, vetting out the culture fit in addition to uncovering the intangible assets a person has to offer is just as important as the skill fit.

Sourcing, interviewing, and qualifying candidates is really an 8+ hour a day job and when there are many other key responsibilities and deliverables on the internal team’s plates, recruiting most often is set on the back burner which in turn costs the company additional money by not having the positions filled. The time saved by partnering and entrusting an executive search partner is a value you really can’t put a number on.
