executive search

the identification of suitable external candidates for senior positions on behalf of an organization by recruitment agents or consultants, often using headhunting techniques. Executive search consultants work from personal recommendation and lists of their own contacts, and monitor rising stars or key personnel in particular organizations or professions. The number of potential candidates is usually limited because of the specialty or seniority of the post, so that the search takes place within upper salary ranges. Executive search consultants rarely advertise because the publicity may be unfruitful or detrimental to the organization for which they are working, and they do not find posts for individual job hunters.
