Executive search is completely driven by client assignments, meaning that you will be approached by search firms — not necessarily when you are looking for a role, but when a company or organisation is looking to fill one.
This means you need to be exposed to the executive search firms who are relevant to your professional aspirations, even when you are not actively looking. Providing up-to-date information about your experience, skillset, current role and ambitions is time and resource intensive and, sometimes, you might not be aware who are the most relevant search firms for you!
How can you ensure that you are contacted by the firm which has the mandate to recruit a new CEO, CFO, COO, Director of Marketing, VP or other C-suite position that is most in line with your own career plan?
Not Actively Looking is a confidential service which allows you to create a single profile and discreetly connect to the executive search firms which are most appropriate for your professional progression. We offer support and information to help you ensure you are connected to the most relevant firms and your profile is completely protected, visible only to the firms with whom you choose to connect. When a search firm has a mandate to recruit, they simply search the detailed criteria and if your profile fits their specific requirements, they will contact you.
Executive registration is straightforward, free from cost and should only take a couple of minutes to get started. Remember, even if you are not actively looking right now, you should still keep your trusted executive search firms up-to-date. You never know what opportunity is actively looking for you!
