Recruiters traditionally target active job seekers - candidates who are either unemployed or are actively searching for a new role - through conventional channels - job boards, online ads and social media. Active job seekers account for approximately 30% of the talent pool, limiting the scope of the search. Furthermore, they may be registered with several recruitment agencies and interviewing for multiple roles, meaning there is direct competition for these candidates. Recruiters seek to mitigate these drawbacks to some extent by reaching out to candidates on their database and LinkedIn network. However, as we'll discuss later this FAQ article, their contingent business model makes time spent on proactive searches prohibitive.

Executive search firms, in contrast, employ proactive search methodologies targeting both passive talent - candidates who are either employed or not seeking a role change - and "tiptoers" - candidates who are not yet applying for roles but are networking. Passive candidates and tiptoers comprise approximately 60% of the talent pool and are not actively interviewing. They might even work for a direct competitor! This makes passive candidates and tiptoers a desirable talent pool. However, in recent years, pioneering firms have extended their coverage to active job seekers, using job adverts and other traditional channels to complement the search (providing the search is non-confidential). This ensures they reach out to the best candidates irrespective of their circumstances. As the industry continues to evolve, some executive search firms have expanded beyond tradition search and selection to provide their clients with leadership advisory services.
