How do headhunters find and identify talent for senior opportunities in the hidden job market?
This one of a number of thoughtful questions I was asked by Kevin Appleby on my recent guest appearance on the GrowCFO Show.
Grow CFO is an online community and training programme supporting ambitious finance leaders with the different skills needed to step up to the CFO role and work strategically with C-suite colleagues.
Kevin is GrowCFO’s Chief Operating Officer and the host of its weekly podcast.
His background is as a chartered accountant and a management consultant with the likes of PwC and IBM.
Kevin is a skilled interviewer and asked some searching questions in this interview.
He was particularly interested to understand how headhunters really operate and how the hidden job market actually works.
The podcast was so good I thought I would repurpose and share it with my own podcast listeners!
I really hope my detailed answers give you some new insider insight into the world of executive recruitment.
This is a must listen for active executive job seekers!
