C-level recruiters are responsible for recruiting executives and other high-level professionals for a company. They typically focus on filling senior management positions, such as CEO, CFO, COO, and other “C-level” positions that your company might need to fill before tackling your most ambitious future projects.
Experienced C suite recruiters are able to work with virtually any company’s hiring managers to identify the skills and qualifications needed for a particular position, and then search for and screen potential candidates.
Once a shortlist of qualified candidates has been identified, the C-level recruiter will typically conduct initial interviews, and may also be involved in the final selection process. They also manage the entire hiring process, including compensation negotiations and closing the deal with the candidate.
Of course, as the decision maker for your own company, you will be the one who will decide from the start how involved your C-level recruiters will be in the decision making process. However, you’ll find that even the choices that seem to be the easiest can become tough and require the assistance and advice of insightful C-level recruiters.
Ultimately, it’s important to draw upon these specialists’ experience, since hiring an unqualified or unsuitable C-level candidate on a top leadership position can spell disaster for your business and cause significant setbacks.
