Why should I sign up?
Search firms will only contact you when your profile matches a client brief that they are currently working on.
The more visible you are to executive search firms, the more likely they are to call on YOU when they are working on a suitable assignment.
The platform helps you to get noticed and provides a confidential forum for you to tell headhunters exactly what you are looking for.
Can't I just sign up to Not Actively Looking when I am job seeking?
Not Actively Looking is designed to allow you to make yourself visible to the executive search community in a controlled and confidential way.
The more visible you are, the more likely you will be contacted for those coveted senior executive roles as they come up. If you are contacted by a headhunter but are not interested at that time, use it as an opportunity for building relationships for later in your career.

What happens to the details that search firm have about me already?

Why do I need to put details of all previous jobs?
Not Actively Looking has developed a unique algorithm which allows search firms to find candidates based on current and previous experience, skills and aspirations. Details of your prior roles could be crucial in helping to match your profile with that perfect opportunity!
I don't want to be visible to all search firms in my sector. Can I just choose certain firms?
You don't have to be connected to all firms in your sector. The system will make recommendations of firms suitable for you. Please choose to connect with the firms that are of interest to you. Although, note that if you have enabled the auto-connect feature, you will be connected with them automatically.
If you're not sure, please click through and have a look at more information about the firm and see what you think. It makes sense to connect with a number of high quality firms to ensure that you will have the best chance of being called for that ideal role.
What do I do if the system doesn't recognise my credit card?
Please try again with the same card. If this still doesn't work, please try a different card. We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
