Executive recruitment vs 'Standard' recruitment
How is executive recruitment different?
Vacancies in executive and senior roles are often of a more sensitive nature and require higher levels of confidentiality. These are the decision makers and often the faces of organisations; departures can cause significant uncertainty amongst the remaining team members so they need to be handled with extra discretion and care.
In many cases, there is also an expectation from others in the organisation that the vacancy should mean a promotion opportunity for them. Sometimes this is a valid succession plan but when they are just not the right person for the role it can be more challenging and unsettling to hear this news from within their own organisation. Best case scenario, you now have a disgruntled employee on your hands, worst case, you now have two vacancies.
To help mitigate this risk, it is considered best practice for organisations to seek independent advice on executive replacements. This can simply be in the form of engaging a third party to join the interview panel, or it could be outsourcing the full end-to-end recruitment process.
