Executive Search: In-House vs Agency

Virtual Event

In today’s competitive business landscape, finding the right leaders to drive your company’s success is crucial. The executive search process requires careful consideration and expertise to identify the best candidates who align with your organisation’s goals and values. In this 60-minute virtual event, we will explore the benefits and challenges of both in-house executive search and partnering with external agencies.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to our experts, both  with extensive experience in both in-house and agency-based executive search,  Lorna SteenbergHead of Executive Talent Acquisition at Walgreens Boots Alliance and Jemma Wilkinson, Talent Solutions Manager at The Firm.  During this event Lorna and Jemma will engage in a lively discussion on the following topics:

  • Real-life examples and case studies showcasing successful outcomes of both approaches.
  • Best practices for blending in-house and agency methods to achieve optimal results.
