Senior Executive Market Updates – Highly active

In the £250K+ Senior Executive market identifying the ideal opportunity has always been a challenge. Knowing the global network of Search Consultants who may have the perfect mandate is complex and the market is largely unadvertised.

The InterExec process is unique in both the preparation of Senior Executives as they hunt for the next key challenge and the global network of some 15,000 senior Search Consultants provides comprehensive and confidential access to the most outstanding opportunities.

InterExec’s expertise and experience covers all of the major business sectors and their network is active in all the major geographic regions. Having been established for over 45 years, the network enables up to the minute assessment of the Senior Executive recruitment market and specific information on currently active mandates Search Consultants are dealing with.

Essentially the market is “hot” right now across a number of business sectors and in most geographic regions especially the UK, Western Europe, US and the Middle East.

The sectors that are seeing the most traction are:

  • Consumer / Tech / Ecommerce
  • Retail
  • Renewable Energy
  • Private Equity
  • Supply Chain / Procurement

A number of Search Consultants in the InterExec network are currently restricted in how many new mandates they can take on because of the level of activity and are increasingly under pressure to find outstanding candidates to present to clients.

Consequently, for those Senior Executives who are considering their next major challenge, we are in an ideal market to start that search.

Across the UK and Europe, candidates with notable experience driving change / transformation, in particular digital transformation, remain in very high demand.

Senior Executives with exposure to blockchain technologies and particularly crypto currencies are in high demand, this is especially so in the US market.

The Middle East remains very active in most business sectors where the high price of oil means more money in the region is being invested into other spaces in an attempt to increasingly diversify their economies.

In other business sectors the opportunities in Financial Services are also numerous for Senior Operations, MD / CEO positions. In Professional Services the Consulting and Legal sectors are particularly active.

Overall the current situation and demand for outstanding Senior Executives is very positive in both the range of business sectors and across the main geographic regions.

If you are considering searching for your next challenge please do not hesitate to get in touch with the InterExec team.
