Executive Search Practice Areas

Boyden specializes in Executive Search across diverse industries and cross-sector areas, ensuring top-tier talent acquisition and leadership solutions for clients globally.

What is Executive Search?

Executive search is the recruitment of senior executives – at Board, C-suite and senior management level – by aligning a leader’s competencies, experience and leadership capabilities to the current and future goals of an organisation.

Executive search consultants are engaged by a client to assess the market for talent and attract the best leaders to their business.

The consulting engagement begins with a strategic review of business needs and industry trends. Then through comprehensive and exhaustive research appropriate leaders or identified and presented to the client organisation. Ultimately the engagement results in the recruitment offer and providing on-boarding support of recruited leaders. But at Boyden it doesn’t end there. We are invested in the long-term success of our clients and the executives we help to recruit.

Many believe that social media has made finding talent and leaders easier, particularly in developed markets. However, finding the right leadership is not as simple as browsing through various social sites. As economies, industries and talent pools evolve, discovering emerging leaders – particularly those in niche markets – who have the right experience and can actually be successful in a particular organisation is critical.

Boyden is a global executive search firm, with expertise in interim management and leadership consulting. Through specialist industry and functional teams across more than 70 offices worldwide, we deliver results based on a high level of personal commitment and a client-focused approach.
