The role of a Professional Headhunter is very different from that of a ‘Recruitment Consultant.’ Professional Headhunters act as advisory Partners to their clients’. Clients work with Professional Headhunters as they are equipped to proactively seek out the best talent in the market for their immediate requirements, rather than reactively working with ‘database’ candidates. Professional Headhunters seek out the very best candidates, through very selective means.
The Headhunting profession is one of the most lucrative in the world, due to the nature of the product being sourced – exceptional corporate individuals who are very high in demand, but very short in supply. These ‘high flyers’ understandably add significant value to a company’s bottom line. It is not surprising that our clients will pay extremely well for their value-adding talents.
The fee income generated by a successful Headhunter can be significantly higher than their professional counterpart lawyers & accountants. Our consultants have generated single fees in excess of £60,000 in recent history; this translates into Harrison James’ top performers being able to earn in excess of £100,000 a year, after only 2 years with the company. Harrison James’ Professional Headhunters also play a brokerage role in closing the financial deals between their client and their candidate, resulting in the Headhunter receiving a handsome cut of the salary & bonus contract offered to the successful candidate. This is similar to premiership footballers’ agents; they require very skilled agents to broker the deal between themselves and their club, resulting in the agent receiving a large cut of the contract.
Harrison James is a very successful, cash rich & 100% privately owned company without any outside financial leverage or investor shareholders. This is unlike other similar companies that pay company profits back to investors. We can therefore guarantee 100% reinvestment of our profits into the development of our staff and provide them with career development and acceleration, much quicker than our competitors. Our office environment is a very vibrant and energetic one. All of our people are bright, ambitious, energetic, enthusiastic team players who are highly motivated to succeed. Our staff retention is second to none, which is testament to the huge financial investment into the quality of our training, and the on-going management support which results in the consistent success and happiness of our recruits.
We are looking to recruit only the most driven, dynamic, and ambitious individuals who possess the raw skills and attributes that can be developed into top performing Professional Headhunters.
You will be a very hard-working team player who possesses natural communication & conversational skills, who projects confidence, enthusiasm, tenacity and an outgoing, positive attitude.
