Senior Executive Market Updates – Global Activity

When a Senior Executive in whatever business or organisation starts the journey of their hunt for the next key role, managing that process is critical. Maintaining confidentiality, managing time and your personal network as well as hunting for a position that will rarely, if ever, be advertised are all demanding issues.

InterExec has successfully worked for over 45 years with thousands of Senior Executives across all business sectors dealing with those issues. With a comprehensive global network of over 15,000 highly experienced Search Consultants, InterExec maintain up to the minute
information on the Senior Executive recruitment market and specifically the key current mandates across the business sectors and in all the major geographic regions.

Notwithstanding political, economic and the plethora of issues that fill the news, the reality is that the hunt for Senior Executives by Corporations and Private Enterprise globally is currently highly active.

The volume of mandates being presented in Europe and the UK has increased exponentially through September. Even with less than ideal economic forecasts and the perceived weakness of the Euro and the Pound, these markets are seeing a lot of activity due to seasonal backlog from the summer and longer term inertia from Covid and Geo-Political issues through the first half of ’22.

Whilst in SE Asia cultural understanding and local language are currently a preference, in other regions including the US and Middle East / Africa the key issues are for Senior Executives who have proven skills and experience, especially in driving growth and transformation.

Feedback from the InterExec network firmly indicates that in all major business sectors including Manufacturing, Retail, Hospitality, Leisure and Oil &Gas there is a high level of current activity with a real focus on Q1 appointments to drive the business in 2023.

In the Financial and Professional Services market the network report a significant number of Senior Executive opportunities. Despite the most recent UK market issues London retains its position and title as Europe’s top financial hub. Alongside that, activity in both Financial and Professional services across Scandinavia, in Switzerland ,the UAE and the US is particularly strong.
The scope is wide. Examples include Insurance, Tax, M&A, Compliance, Risk, Regulation, Asset Management, Wealth Management, Investment Banking, Corporate Banking, Fixed Income, Capital Markets, Structured Finance, FinTech, Legal, NFP, Energy & Renewables, Cyber Security, Consultancy and Communications.

The breath of Search Consultant interest is encouraging and clearly the market remains very active.
In searching for your next key challenge this is an ideal time to get that process underway to take advantage of the surge in appointments Search Consultants now have mandates for. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the InterExec team.
