Executive Search is a research–based methodology which is guaranteed to find the best executive for a given role. It is quite different from advertised recruitment. Advertisements in a newspaper, or on the internet attract only those people looking for a job. Potential candidates who are currently performing well in stimulating positions are unlikely to see and reply to advertisements. Executive search is a process designed to identify and attract the best candidate to the position.
It is most effective when the candidate pool is hard to define or where the market for likely candidates is very tight.
It can be used in association with an advertising campaign which provides transparency and additional exposure for the client. Unlike advertising alone it guarantees an outcome.
KTES uses executive search to identify candidates for senior executive appointments and for appointments to Boards.
