Executive Search & Headhunting
For Executive Recruitment or Headhunting, you need a partner to find the hand-picked expertise to drive your business forward and be a perfect fit.
Discovery’s unique recruitment and selection process uses rigour and neuroscience combined with experience and tenacity. Whether you are looking for a partner to conduct a global search for a particular niche role or headhunting a discrete assignment, we don’t leave anything to chance. The outcome? A shortlist of exceptional executives that are aligned to your business strategy, behaviours, values and culture.
When you partner with us you’ll always get a wide choice of match-fit candidates measured against a congruent benchmark and discovered by a team who genuinely care about your challenges. You need a recruitment partner that solves your problems, not one who adds new ones.
Our aim isn’t to simply fill a role. We don’t just scroll through databases or shuffle CVs and leave you in the dark to figure out who’s best. We focus our executive search on finding the best people by looking at them as a whole, considering your business ecosystem and ensuring they are a good potential fit by evidencing their suitability.
We aim to take away the pain of recruitment through a robust process and evidence-based outcomes; we don’t believe in a short-term, ‘put a plaster on it’ approach. Ultimately we have uniquely devised our approach to reduce the risk of inappropriate hires and your total cost of workforce ownership along the way.
At Discovery we believe that executive search and headhunting requires rigour, expertise and a good understanding of your business and the executive marketplace. We source professionals who meet your objectives and are aligned to business strategy, culture, organisational behaviours & future stretch. The Discovery way attracts and uncovers a more diverse choice of candidates to meet your brief.
