What is headhunting?
Headhunting is a means of recruitment that searches for candidates for open positions without a public advertisement search. Headhunting is usually used when you want to act confidentially or with a particularly low profile. Headhunting has traditionally focused on the recruitment of the company's top management, but today the headhunting service is utilized at all levels of the organization. In most cases, however, executive search assignments target expert-level tasks and hard-to-find professionals.
How can my company benefit from executive search?
The advantage of executive searches is that candidates are selected from the very beginning of the application process who, based on their skills, are suitable candidates for open positions. This is also an effective way to reduce the risk of mistaken recruitment. With the help of executive search, it is possible to reach talents who are not actively looking for new opportunities in their working life. With the digitalization of the world, it no longer takes weeks or months to find an expert, but a suitable person can be found even in a few days.
The best of executive search:
- You save time in the recruitment process.
- You will find a person with the right skills, experience and qualities for the job description.
- The risk of costly mistaken recruitment is reduced.
- You may find the professional you are looking for among the passive applicants.
- You will receive support for the recruitment process from a RekryDiili professional.

In executive search assignments, we go through our own expert bank and make extensive use of tools in the field. To support executive search, we also use various social media platforms and online services. This is how we reach a wide range of potential employees. We invest especially in a successful and positive candidate experience, so that applicants are left with a meaningful picture of our contact. Again, we act in the strictest confidence and do not disclose the name of the client company to the candidates.
We interview the potential candidates we find through headhunting and report the results in detail to our client company. The interviews are conducted according to the wishes and requirements of our client. It is possible to combine all headhunting with psychological aptitude assessment and testing to select the most suitable candidates. Based on the results, it is clearer for the client company to plan the orientation and possible training of the new employee. If necessary, we will be involved in the final selection of recruitment and give our own proposal and view on the best candidate for the position.
