There are clearly other reasons why you wouldn’t want to broadcast a particular recruitment requirement. Don’t think you have to wait until you can openly discuss the sensitivity of the role, there is a way round this!
As a team of award-winning Executive Search consultants our business is bound by non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements. In several cases we have delivered our shortlist of candidates from a confidential search where the candidates do not know the name of our client.
Because our working practice is to be 100% confidential, the two can be run simultaneously, which will minimise disruption and save you time to continue to run your business.
If you have a particularly sensitive role you’d like to discuss but have concerns about replying via email, just give us a call, or call me out of hours on my mobile if you prefer, we can have an initial chat and maybe agree to meet ‘off site’ to discuss in further detail.
