“Executive Recruitment” is a specialized form of management consulting. Its purpose is to assist executives of a client organization in defining executive positions, identifying well-qualified and motivated candidates, and selecting those best suited through comprehensive, quality assured search processes.

 

Executive Recruitment is widely recognized as an indispensable service to organizations worldwide and is generally built on relationships. The services provided by executive recruitment consultants are an integral part of the process of building and maintaining corporate, non-profit and government clients. Like professionals in the fields of law, public accounting and general management consulting, executive recruitment consultants have a profound influence on the organizations they serve.

ERA and its members recognize that outstanding professional service rests on the quality and integrity of relationships with clients, candidates, employees, and the public. Executive recruitment firms depend on all these groups for their continuing success, and to each group they have important responsibilities.

 

Clients

ERA members are partners with their clients in a consultative process aimed at selecting the most competent executives. The professional recruitment consultant identifies the client’s specific needs and unique culture as essential elements in recruiting appropriate leaders for client organizations.

Candidates

ERA members maintain professional relationships with candidates and always treat them with respect. ERA members regard honesty, objectivity, accuracy, and confidentiality as fundamental to their relationship with candidates.

Consultants

ERA and its member firms are partners in professional development.

The Public
