“Executive search services (informally called headhunting) is a specialized recruitment service which clients pay to seek out and recruit highly qualified candidates. iFORTE ESS offers Contingent Search Services.
We are paid upon the successful completion of a “search” and when the candidate has been “placed” on board with the client. Most clients companies who decide to use an executive search firm do so because they don’t have the internal resources, network, or perhaps even evaluative skills to recruit themselves. Some clients may even use them to recruit from competitors indirectly, allowing them to find candidates they might not have been able to find otherwise.”
