Consider a search firm for a confidential job search
In many cases, companies conduct confidential searches when they want to replace someone who is still with the firm. In these situations, the criteria generally include a need for confidentiality, speed and finding a person with a highly specific skill set.
One of the biggest challenges that companies face in these situations is that their own networks are not big enough to find someone to fit the requirements in a timely manner.
Find the candidate who isn’t looking
Secondly, the “perfect person” for the position is likely already employed and not actively looking to move, and therefore not looking at job postings.
This is where an experienced search firm can be of highest value. We can help you shape and define the candidate profile and define the skills necessary to make a smooth transition and then go deep into our resources to find a selection of potential candidates.
It really pays to work with a search firm that specializes in specific fields. At Ambit Search, our whole world is finance and accounting. We know the industry both deep and wide and have followed the careers of key people over many years. That means we know where a discreet call could be the first step in encouraging the right person to make a move.
