Executive Search

Our premiere search and headhunting service for executive and managerial roles in the Philippines.

Are you looking to hire business leaders and managers? Then, you are probably looking for a trusted executive search firm in the Philippines.

In our years of experience in executive recruitment in the Philippines, we learned that top-level executives and managers are not fond of submitting resumes to job boards and websites for consideration. This means that you have to personally seek them out.

The best option is to tap these passive candidates using headhunters. This is exactly what our premiere headhunting service will do for you. With our wide geographic reach, a vast network of professionals, and top-of-the-shelf headhunters, we guarantee to help you solve your executive recruitment needs in the Philippines.

Curran Daly & Associates’ Executive Search Service is our market leading service to recruit the following roles: CEOs and other C-level executives (COO, CTO, CFO, CIO, CMO), Vice President, Directors, Principals, and other managerial roles in the Philippines.

Let us help you solve your recruitment needs now.

1) through friends or network referrals;

Our research, coupled with feedback from various organizations that support us, say that when you put up a job ad on the web or in the newspaper you will only attract 5% of the total pool of candidates with the necessary skills.

Using a recruitment partner will increase this pool to 35% of the total candidate pool, but out of that 35%, the recruiter will know which of these candidates are in the top 15% of performers based on market knowledge.

In a nutshell, a majority chunk of the candidate landscape remains inactive, followed by a considerable fraction who is only passively looking, with a surprisingly thin slice devoted to those who are actively looking, lagging last.
