Emerging trends in executive recruitment: what you need to know to stay ahead

Are you planning your next executive search? Here are some emerging trends in executive recruitment that you need to keep in mind if you want to stay ahead of the curve. 


Flexible working remains a non-negotiable for most job seekers in 2023 and employers should keep this in mind when advertising executive roles. Those companies that don’t offer some level of remote working risk losing out on top candidates to competitors who do. 

Digital competence 

Being digitally savvy is no longer a ‘nice to have’ – it is essential for all executives and digital skills should always be prioritised in the search for new hires. 

Communication, communication, communication…

Keeping your potential hires in the loop when it comes to next steps, interview dates and feedback is paramount in today’s job market. This will make them feel valued and help your business stand out – especially with ‘ghosting’ becoming the new norm. 

Opportunities for skills development 

Candidates are always looking to refine and develop their professional skills and executives are no exception. By offering opportunities for growth such as training days, virtual courses and team-building activities, you will attract the crème de la crème of the talent pool. 

Seamless onboarding process

We are currently looking at a candidates’ market, which means your business needs to be on the ball regarding onboarding so you don’t lose out on candidates.
