What Is Executive Search?

Executive Search Indonesia

In a nutshell, Executive Search is the term used to describe the Executive Recruitment Process that a company undertakes when it seeks to identify, attract and hire key leadership talent.

It’s Not as simple as posting a job vacancy on LinkedIn!

When dealing with senior level hiring, the vast majority of people that tick the boxes… The people that a company wants to employ… Have a job, are happily employed and well looked after. They will often work for competitors. They are Not actively looking for a new job.

So how does a company locate and access these elite professionals? How do they get them motivated to have an interview and explore their job opportunity?

They use the services of a specialist Executive Search Agency.

An Executive Search Agency employs highly experienced Executive Search Recruiters; professionals that specialise in 1 thing: Identifying, Approaching, Exciting and Securing top notch senior candidates for client companies that wish to make a Key Hire of Value.

Other terms that are used are “Headhunter Company“, “Executive Headhunters” and “Executive Search Consultants“…

At the end of the day, these are simply different expressions for the same thing.

Executive Search Agencies offer bespoke executive recruitment services that are tailored to the unique needs of each client business that they serve.

Their role is far larger and more complicated than a mainstream “Recruitment Agency”.

A mainstream “Recruitment Agency” is focused on Junior and Mid Level hiring.

A mainstream Recruitment Agency relies on LinkedIn Job Ads to attract Active Job Seeker Candidates.

On the other hand, an Executive Search Agency and its Executive Search Recruiters are focused on “Passive Candidates“.

Their client companies need to hire elite professionals, people that are, 99% of the time, happily employed and Not looking for a new job.

As a service provider, the brand and reputation of an Executive Search Agency is based entirely on the quality and ability of its Executive Search Recruiters.

When performing Executive Search an Executive Search Recruiter must work quietly, discreetly, confidentially, 100% behind the scenes.

An Executive Search Recruiter plays many roles… and to succeed at their job they must be an expert at all;

Networking guru

Headhunter warrior

Deep listener

Expert negotiator

Strategic advisor

All of these skills are required to deliver the best result possible – a stellar hire made by their client.

But they are also needed to ensure that a client company and executive candidates… can travel smoothly through the rough terrain of senior talent acquisition.

As “Professional Matchmakers“, Executive Search Recruiters carry a big responsibility – the quality of their work, the results that they deliver… directly impact a clients business performance and its corporate culture… as senior leadership defines both…

At the same time their work has a huge impact on the life and career of the individuals that they place at client organisations. A bad match can cause a lot of problems.

So, at its core, Executive Search is about finding and securing the best… and the right… leadership talent for a company.

And to do this effectively, an Executive Search Recruiter must have a deep understanding of a client’s business, its industry and their corporate culture.

The goal of an Executive Headhunter is to find individuals that not only have the necessary skills and experience required by a company, but also align well with their clients values and strategic direction.

People that will compliment and improve a business.

Let’s Go Deeper: ‘Executive Search Agency’ vs ‘Normal Recruitment Agency’

Whilst the fundamental aim of both an Executive Search Agency and a Recruitment Agency is to fill job vacancies… this is where the similarity ends.

In all other aspects, there are huge key differences.

For a start an Executive Search Agency works 100% behind the scenes, confidentiality is top of mind. They are dealing with senior professionals and everyone wants things kept quiet.

An Executive Search Recruiter researches and identifies all potentially relevant candidates for every assignment they work on, they then directly approach all potential candidates.

When approaching a potential candidate they must be able to effectively market their client organisation and their job opportunity, get the executive excited to explore.

Their core focus is Passive Candidates – senior professionals that are employed and Not looking for new work.

They must be able to guide senior business leaders throughout the executive recruitment process. Provide balanced logical advice.

Ultimately, Executive Search Recruiters – or Executive Headhunters – are experts at targeting and securing top-tier executive talent for key positions at their client firms.

The overriding objective of a Real Headhunter = clients must hire the “Best of the Best”.

Now a mainstream Recruitment Agency on the other hand… works in the public eye.

They advertise their client job vacancies online – we have all seen the LinkedIn Job Ads, the Job Portal Ads.

A Recruitment Agency posts a client job vacancy online and waits for Active Job Seeker Candidates to “Click Apply”.

They screen the CVs received, have calls with those that look a good fit.

And they submit the best candidates that have applied to their client.

As such mainstream Recruitment Agencies are focused on Junior and Mid Level hiring – where speed is the primary focus, active job seeker candidates are more than enough as an “OK” candidate will suffice.

While both types of “Recruitment Agency” aim to fill job vacancies, the way that they work… and the depth of their service… are worlds apart.

The Strategic Role of an Executive Search Recruiter

Sourcing and Securing C-Suite Talent

Executive Search Agencies, by nature, specialise in Senior Key Hires of Value.

That means that they typically cover C-Suite, top-level management, and Board of Director recruitment.

They may also be used for mid management roles, where a company deems the position critical and only the best of the best will do.

To be successful an Executive Search Agency must have instant direct access to a vast network of potential candidates…

The majority of which will be happily employed and not actively seeking new career opportunities.

This “Executive Network Access” is crucial, as it allows an Executive Headhunter to quickly build a candidate long-list for every assignment that they work on.

To quickly target the high-caliber talent needed.

Guiding Clients and Senior Candidates

Beyond filling senior job vacancies, Executive Search Recruiters play a key role in guiding their clients and senior candidates.

They provide invaluable insights into local market conditions, industry trends, competitor analysis, compensation.

They provide guidance based on years of experience and interaction with thousands of candidates.

This knowledge, these insights, help to make a Hire Happen, they contribute to the long-term success and competitiveness of client firms and the ability for Executive Candidates to make smart, informed decisions.

Spotlight on Executive Search in Jakarta and Indonesia

Executive Search in Indonesia

Lets talk about Executive Search in Jakarta and Indonesia.

As a key emerging market Indonesia is “top of list” for most companies that are looking to enter SE Asia, or Asia.

It has the 4th largest population in the world…

All sectors are in rapid growth mode, driven by increasing international investment and also – most importantly – by a rapidly expanding middle-class population.

With the country’s expanding economy, new businesses are entering each day and established players are scaling up. As such demand for top-tier executive talent, across all industries, is sky rocketing.

But top class leaders take time to nurture and develop and the talent pool remains relatively restricted… There is intense competition for the best of the best… And only the ambitious win.

Companies are competing to attract and retain their skilled executives, the people so important for business growth and success.

This fierce competition for talent has led to a challenging talent acquisition environment – businesses need to offer highly competitive compensation packages, career advancement opportunities and a great work culture to attract and retain their senior-level executives.

Jakarta, as the capital and business hub of Indonesia, is naturally where demand for Executive Search Services is at its greatest, it is also where the competition for top talent is most intense.
