Executive Search firms offer additional solutions to their clients beyond leadership consulting.
This can be appealing to prospective candidates thinking about a career in Executive Search as there are so many other avenues a candidate can go down if the Research side of the core Executive Search business does not feel right for them by a certain point.
Alongside the other, more traditional in-house functions of a large global firm such as Marketing, HR, Finance, Legal, Technology, a candidate working in Executive Search can also apply to move internally into specialist client areas such as those below as listed on the AESC forum.
Assessment, Board Services, Coaching, Competency Modelling Culture Shaping, Diversity & Inclusion, Employee Engagement, Employer Branding, Executive Pay & Governance, HR Effectiveness, Interim Management, Leadership Development, Onboarding, Organizational Mapping. Performance Management, Recruitment Process Outsourcing, Rewards & Benefits, Strategic Workforce Planning, Strategy Execution & Organization Design, Succession Planning, Talent Strategy & Workforce Design, Total Rewards & Benefits.
