Executive Search (Headhunting) is a proven recruitment technique which is designed to produce discreetly a short list of highly relevant candidates against a specific brief, by approaching targeted individuals who have a specific set of skills, knowledge and experience, perfectly suited to a client’s long term needs and objectives.
The Lighthouse consultant will be personally responsible for all aspects of the search assignment, particularly the front line contact and meeting with candidates. As an informed and trusted partner the Lighthouse consultant will present the opportunity and create interest, by providing compelling reasons why a highly sought after candidate should engage with the recruitment process.
This combined resourcing approach has proven to be most successful and is one of the most effective recruitment techniques in securing the widest available market when searching, for the best possible candidates to fulfil key roles. On occasions our clients wish to remain open-minded about the required background of potential candidates and in these instances Executive Search used in conjunction with targeted online and / or printed advertising media campaigns does provide an ideal solution.
Advertised Selection uses multiple web-based advertising campaigns and on occasions printed media if deemed appropriate. The candidate specification determines the use of advertised selection and is generally used when the requirement is of a more generic nature or it is felt that candidates with transferrable skills and experience are appropriate.
Our online advertising campaign includes the top generic and best industry specific sites and where appropriate specialist sites which complement the particular sector or discipline we are recruiting for.
Sometimes the business situation demands that you only pay when the recruitment process is complete and you have made an appointment. As an alternative to other sourcing methods Contingency recruiting is particularly appropriate for companies looking to fill key professional and executive positions within a tight deadline.
