Executive search in Africa

Why Africa?

Africa may be just one continent, but it is composed of a rich multidimensional mix of nationalities, cultures and languages. If you’re looking for a career in an executive role, then Africa has plenty of opportunities. Did you know that six of the world’s fastest-growing economies are in Africa? The continent is seeing investment in infrastructure, renewable technology and much more, as many countries look to enable long-term sustainable economic growth. 

Africa also has an abundance of untouched natural resources and minerals, so industries like the mining sector are thriving. This, when combined with the demand for housing, energy and new transport facilities, has led to companies investing in huge projects across the continent. As a result, many of these organisations in Africa are on the lookout for qualified and skilled senior executives to drive economic growth through these projects.

When to use executive search

The best executive talent in any company is usually one of its most valuable assets, and businesses invest lots of time and resources to retain these key individuals. As a result, these candidates are not actively available in the open hiring market.

That’s where executive search comes in. It is suited to leadership roles that will give companies a competitive advantage over its rivals in the marketplace. It’s also the best way to identify and headhunt candidates with specific skill sets, which are often in short supply!

If you’re an organisation looking to recruit talented candidates for your senior management and board-level roles, then you may be wondering why and when you should use an executive search agency. Here’s why and when you should use it:

  • You can hire the best available candidate rather than relying on a few referrals from your own network.
  • Extend your candidate search internationally, so you can hire the best person with the right skill set.
  • If you’ve previously hired the wrong person for the position in the past.
  • If you’re looking for a candidate with a very specific and extremely rare set of skills and talents.
  • If you’ve been trying to fill an executive position for over three months, with no success.
