More information

London headhunters specialise in sourcing top executive professionals for the senior jobs of organisations based in the UK capital. Due to the city being recognised as one of the World's leading economic centres, many international companies are based here and this has created a need for headhunting firms in London to source only the most in demand talent for their clients' management and director positions.

Executive headhunters in London will often have expertise in a particular industry and will use their local knowledge and industry connections to uncover senior professionals that meet the exact criteria of their clients. Senior job roles that typically require search and selection techniques include directors and managers but the positions are likely to be industry specific. Finance headhunters in London may be required to source a corporate finance executive, whereas marketing headhunters could be tasked with finding a sales director. A leading London headhunter will commonly address executive vacancies with a salary of £100K+ per annum.

The city is known as the UK leader for finance / banking and this has resulted in local financial headhunters being some of the most prominent providers of executive searches in the country. Marketing headhunting recruitment agencies and fashion search and select consultancies are also high demand services within London and the South East.

Top executive headhunters will invest time in getting to understand their clients' company culture, the job role and the exact attributes needed of an employee. Executive search consultants will then take proactive steps to find the perfect professional for the job and may already be in contact with ideal candidates.

Unlike a contingency recruitment agency, London headhunting firms will typically command a percentage of the fee prior to conducting an executive search. They will also then expect payment upon presenting a shortlist and then again after a candidate is successfully recruited.
