Top Executive Search Firms By Revenue
When it comes to searching for and placing candidates, some companies do a better job of it than others. The largest companies often gravitate towards the top search firms to find key hires, however smaller, specialist headhunting firms are often used as well. The top 10 firms are listed below, by revenue.
Are The Largest Search Firms The Best?
The largest headhunter firms aren't necessarily the best. There are many boutique executive search firms which focus on just one industry or just one particular job function. Many of these firms are very good at what they do as they specialize and focus - unlike the larger, more generalist firms.
So when looking for a search firm, do look outside of the major companies as you may be missing out on expert recruiters who know your industry or job function very well.
