What is the difference between recruitment and executive search?

Recruiters traditionally target a large number of active job seekers – candidates who are either unemployed or are actively searching for a new role – through conventional channels such as job boards, online ads, and social media.

Recruitment typically occurs for:

  • Entry to mid-level positions
  • Positions that are in high demand or have a wider pool of qualified candidates
  • Roles that have lesser importance in leading your business
  • Non-confidential roles that can be advertised openly

Executive search is a specialised form of recruitment that focuses on the identification, evaluation, and placement of senior-level executives and high-potential candidates. Unlike traditional recruitment methods, executive search is a more comprehensive, strategic, and consultative process that involves a deep understanding of the company's culture, goals, and needs.

Executive search usually occurs for:

  • Senior to executive level roles (CEO, CMO, COO, etc.)
  • Roles that are key to the business’s performance
  • Senior roles that are difficult to fill or niche/specialist skill sets are required
  • Confidential roles

Contract Recruitment

Many projects in these industries have specific timelines and require a range of specialised skills and expertise. Contract recruitment can provide access to these skills on a project-by-project basis, without the need for a full-time hire.

At Gibson Watts, we understand that flexibility and scalability are vital for realising projects in these industries. Our contract recruitment solutions are designed to adapt in tandem with your organisation, enabling us to address ever-changing requirements with unparalleled agility.
