While executive headhunters work for a headhunter agency, the executive recruiters usually have a role in business. You will easily confuse them with each other or even with the Hiring Manager. The following article will address some issues related to the job of executive headhunters and executive recruitment in Vietnam.

Overview of the executive recruiter’s position

What are executive recruiters?

An executive recruiter is a person seeking a candidate for a special position that meets business requirements.

What do executive recruiters do?

The executive recruiter is a person who seeks, persuades candidates to work or become a member of their company or organization. Unlike Headhunter, Recruiter is distinguished by specialization (category), included FMCG, Real Estate, and Logistic. Recruiter's search subjects depend on the needs and competencies required by the company.

Advantages & Disadvantages of outsourcing the executive recruiters in Vietnam

Advantages of using the executive recruiters 

  • Pay by salary, recruitment according to needs - Different from executive headhunters, Talent Acquisition Specialist provides seeking candidates to the businesses that hire them as employees, and they get paid so they will be less aggressive because they don't work to earn a commission. A recruiter can better answer your questions about jobs, salaries, and company culture than offline intermediaries. 

  • Directly deal salary and offer - Both headhunter and recruiter find suitable candidates for the vacancy, but the recruiter will directly participate in the entire recruitment process, from posting recruitment, reading the candidate's profile, and interviewing directly. Some employers will actively search for candidates, but most will post on job search sites or use their own company's website. Employers will regularly monitor and search for people for vacancies in the company.

  • Understands the company's culture and recruitment process - Moreover, employers who directly work in the company will be responsible for other personnel issues, while those of third parties just need to find the right talent for the position that the company requires. This will make their recruitment scope wider because they can hire professionals from other fields.

Disadvantages of outsourcing the executive recruiters in Vietnam

  • Only have data of industry - A recruitment department or an executive recruiter definitely cannot compare data potential with executive search and selection firms in both quantity and quality. Also, the attributes in the data technology of a recruiter are not equal to any executive search firm by high cost and time spent.

  • Network - Another drawback of hiring recruiters is the network. For the executive recruitment Vietnam market, especially in the high segment, networking not only mentions the relationships but also includes candidates.

  • Don't have a general overview of industries - Because focusing on the internal human resources department, most recruiters forget about the outside market. The employment recruiters know very well about their company, culture, systems, and data. But if they do not keep creating a relationship with other Recruiter / HR companies to know how the market is doing, they will be down back.

  • Low speed - Due to the limitations mentioned above: industry limitations, data, network, technology, the processing, and searching speed of Talent Acquisition Specialist are also limited compared to headhunter agency or executive and selection firm.
