Tasked with overseeing the day to day decision making of a company, executive and management staff have typically acquired many years of experience and are leaders in their chosen field. From board level to management positions, candidates are expected to be well organised, strong decision makers and have the ability to motivate a team. Manchester executive recruitment agencies will use their local and industry knowledge to find the best professionals for their clients. Due to the importance of the role and the specialist skills often required, an agency may employ headhunting or executive search tactics to source the most in demand candidates.
Outside of London, Manchester has grown to become the UK's second capital with executive professionals thriving here in industries such as the Financial Services, Media and Legal. Personnel in the highest job roles have the potential to earn a salary of more than £100K per annum.
Manchester is ideally situated for executives with the majority of the UK accessible within a 4 hour drive. It's also home to one of the country's busiest airports which makes the city a prime location for international businesses or professionals who may need to work overseas.
The 2011 opening of Mediacity in Salford has given a boost to the Manchester media industry and has provided excellent job opportunities for senior level staff looking to work for the BBC, ITV and SIS. High profile organisations such as Kellogg's and Umbro have also relocated to the North of the country, although financial businesses seem to be the source of most jobs for executives.
Manchester executive recruitment agencies specialise in providing local staffing solutions and will likely cover the areas of Trafford, Salford, Stockport, Tameside and Greater Manchester as a whole. They may also work with clients in other areas of the North West such as Liverpool and Warrington. Consultants will usually address permanent and interim roles for positions such as chairman, marketing manager and financial director.
