The Executive Search market in the UK and globally continues to go from strength to strength. Factors such as the global technology boom, disruption within the digital economy and the changing face of consumerism has led to a war on talent for top leader’s expert in these sectors.
As businesses and industries continue to expand globally this in turn has led to a growth of the Executive Search industry whose specialist services are in demand now more than ever before.
The Search to Search market is varied in its nature. There are the larger traditional “SHREK” firms as well as a plethora of smaller boutiques and mid-sized businesses all competing for market share.
Carlin hall work on opportunities from Researcher to Partner level. We can help individuals break into a career in Executive Search, as well as advising Partners looking for the next step in their career.
In addition, we have seen an increased demand for contingent recruiters with good academics to enter the Executive Search market either at Researcher or Consultant level dependant on experience.
Similarly, there are many specialist Executive Search firms that are looking for experienced Search professionals who might want to downsize from a larger organisation, so they have a “larger piece of the pie”, or contrarily, those who are working in a boutique who want the prestige of working for a global leader.
Particularly buoyant areas currently include Consumer & Retail, Technology Media and Telecoms, Life Sciences and Financial Services.
If you are an experienced Executive Search professional looking for a move, or a contingent recruiter interested in a career change please get in touch with a Consultant at Carlin Hall who will consult and advise confidentially as appropriate.
