Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Headhunter and what do they actually do? A headhunter is a company or individual that provides specialised and aggressive employment recruiting services on behalf of the employer. Headhunters are hired by firms to find talent and to locate individuals who meet very specific job requirements.
How much does a Headhunter typically charge? A headhunter generally gets paid in increments throughout the recruitment process. As with recruiters, employers generally pay headhunters a fee based on the percentage of the salary for the position they’re filling.
What are the differences between a Recruiter and a Headhunter? Recruiters will advertise job vacancies and use their networks to attract candidates who are actively on the market. They will then compile a shortlist of candidates for the employers approval. A headhunter on the other hand, will typically broaden their focus to include the ‘passive’ market, being those candidates who are the most qualified and highly regarded, but may not be actively seeking a new role. This process typically takes longer but is much more thorough and bespoke.
Can a Headhunter be used for general purpose recruitment? Headhunters focus on a speciality area or executive roles. Many employers will use a headhunter when they have a very important vacancy to fill. Other employers supplement their recruiting staff with external headhunters.
Can a small business engage a Headhunter? Yes. As long as the candidate requirements and specifications are clear, a headhunter can be engaged to conduct specific hiring works for a small business.
What skills and qualifications do you need to become a Headhunter? Headhunters are highly qualified individuals usually with a Bachelor degree or higher. They possess an in-depth knowledge of their specialised industry and have a large and solid network. Headhunters are very people orientated and have strong people skills.
