Most top managers and HR professionals, as well as business families and their companies, know that strategic executive search and leadership advisory services are typically employed to fill key management and specialised positions. And yet many assign a task of finding suitable candidates to recruitment agencies. One of the reasons is that most recruitment agencies include the term executive search in the portfolio of their services.
It may seem that the difference between a recruitment agency and executive search and leadership consulting is just a matter of how and how much a client will pay for the service.

But how does it work in real life?
