    Top management recruitment is a service that impacts companies at the highest levels.

    It is required on the departure of a leader or manager with significant responsibility and is often carried out very discreetly. Mind Partners is ready to bring its expertise in the field of Top management recruitment to bear when you need it.

    What is Top management? Did you say Top management?

    ‘Top management’ refers to the C-suite executives with the heaviest responsibilities in an organisation. They are usually members of the company’s highest decision-making bodies (the senior management team or the board of directors).

    At Mind Partners, our teams are experienced in recruiting Top managers (executive) and senior managers: Chief Executive Officers (CEO), Chief Financial Officers (CFO), Chief Operating Officers (COO) and Chief Human Resources Officers (CHRO).

    The right approach for Top management: the direct approach

    At this level, the recruitment method we recommend is the direct approach. It is also called “headhunting”.

    It is a carefully tailored, proactive and structured approach. It is based on a sectoral and professional analysis of the market and direct, personal contact with the Top managers identified.

    Mind Partners’ knowledge of the environment, our teams’ expertise and the network we maintain ensure we can discreetly and efficiently explore the range of talents corresponding to the post to be filled.   

    Depending on the complexity and rarity of the profile sought, the direct approach means better and faster identification of suitable candidates.

    It grants access to talent not visible on the market, totally discreetly and within an optimal timeframe. Nevertheless, the investigation options remain open, and it is possible to work with what we call hybrid approach methods offered by our Executive Search service. In this case, identifying prospects and searching for Top management candidates will take place in full visibility and transparency, including advertisements, canvassing, and so on.
