An organisation may seek to appoint an executive search firm or a recruiter when they are looking to make a new hire or series of hires, but lack the resources or know-how necessary to find, qualify and shortlist high-impact talent for interview. This may be because they lack Human Resource (HR) expertise, their HR and/or Talent Acquisition (TA) function doesn't have the capacity to complete the search, or they simply struggled to identify or engage high-calibre candidates with technical and cultural fit. In either of these scenarios, the organisation may decide to reach out to an executive search firm or recruiter to source the very best individual for the role. However, which they choose to appoint will likely depend on these criteria:

Recruiters typically focus on sourcing junior positions up-to and including lower-level management. Within this broad remit, some choose to differentiate themselves by specialising by experience level, for example, entry level or graduate jobs, or intermediate or experienced non-managers. Senior, Executive or Top-Level Management roles are a high-risk proposition for recruiters due to their preference for contingent-based business model (explored later in this articles). The type or roles filled vary with industry and organisational size, but if the role involves supervising employees, or the role itself reports into an individual with no direct reports, then consider appointing a recruitment agency who serves your local area.
