Executive Researcher - 1125578

"Executive researchers use their knowledge of the client, the mandate, and their prior experience to lay the groundwork for a successful search. They set the search strategy, identify target organizations most likely to yield qualified candidates, and understand job titles and reporting relationships to home in on the “right” person to pursue on behalf of their clients.

Because researchers are ambassadors – they represent their client, their firm, themselves as search experts, and our profession as a whole. Because they are the first point of contact with prospective candidates and referral sources, they set the tone for every interaction going forward." - AESC

This position will support executive-level, full cycle recruitment. Will help execute the Talent Acquisition Strategy for the region or assigned client group and deliver the resourcing policies, framework and processes, and drive constant external market awareness to build and maintain our clients as the employer of choice.
