This article focuses on executive search firms or headhunters. Headhunters are frequently used as the most effective way of spearheading the recruitment drive for high level positions. Generally appointed by companies that are serious about their cultural reinforcement and market standing, a competent headhunter will look for talent to not only support the employer today, but also as it reacts to changing trading conditions in the future. The headhunter is contributing towards the creation of super groups of intellectual capital and experience.
